Connecticut Social Security Disability Attorneys
When you work your entire adult life, paying into the Social Security system, you expect that if you become disabled, you will have access to the benefits you paid for. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration denies most initial claims for benefits, and waiting for appeals can take months or even years. If your claim for Social Security Disability benefits was denied, you may need legal help. At Carter Mario Injury Lawyers, we want to learn about your claim so we can help you get the benefits that you’re owed.

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are available to those who are disabled and can no longer work because they have impairments that are expected to last for at least one year, or even result in death. If you are a disabled worker who has worked long enough and earned enough work credits, you may qualify for benefits.
What Family Members Qualify for Social Security Benefits?
Benefits may also be available to the family members of those who are disabled.
These family members may include:
- Spouses – Spouses may qualify if age 62 or older. Spouses of any age may qualify if they care for the child of a beneficiary, providing that child is age 16 or younger, or disabled.
- Divorced spouses – Under certain circumstances, a divorced spouse may also qualify for benefits if he or she was married to the beneficiary for at least 10 years, is not currently remarried, and is age 62 or older.
- Children – If your child or adopted child (including stepchildren and grandchildren) is unmarried and under age 18, or under age 19 and in elementary or secondary school full time, he or she may qualify to receive benefits. An unmarried child who is age 18 or older and has a disability that started before age 22 may also qualify.
The Social Security Administration uses very strict guidelines when evaluating SSD claims. If you or your loved one have been denied benefits, our Connecticut social security disability lawyers at Carter Mario Injury Lawyers can help your family get the benefits you need.
