Social Security and Disability Insurance Benefits
The Social Security Administration offers financial benefits to individuals who have become disabled. Qualifying for it depends on a number of factors: the age at which one became disabled, the length of prior career, current work status, severity of disability, and work capability. New Hampshire and Massachusetts Social Security Attorney Darlene Daniele understands that dealing with Social Security can be difficult, frustrating, confusing and intimidating. The application process is complicated and lengthy (sometimes taking up to 3 to 5 months) and making even a small mistake on your application can result in a denied claim. Attorney Daniele is experienced in dealing with the Social Security claims process and can help you avoid costly errors and get the disability benefits to which you are entitled.
Bankruptcy enables people who are delinquent in financial obligations to legally discharge (wipe out) their debts, often with little or no negative consequences. We can help determine if you qualify under the Chapter 7 “means” test, or if you will need to file for a Chapter 13 reorganization to repay debts over time. We provide debt counseling, workouts, foreclosure prevention and pre-bankruptcy planning. If you are having difficulties meeting your financial obligations, call for a confidential consultation.
