The rules, regulations and laws associated with filing for social security benefits in Baltimore are actually the same all across the entire country.

London, P.C. in Baltimore, we specialize in handling social security benefits claims and can provide you with any information you might need about the application process.
Are You Eligible For Social Security Benefits?
There are two main types of social security benefits available to U.S. residents, and both of them have their own specific requirements. The two main benefit types are SSD which stands for Social Security Disability (which is also referred to as SSDI or Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI which stands for Supplemental Security Income. We at The Law Office of Fred S. London, P.C. in Baltimore can help you determine whether or not you are eligible for either of these two social security benefits.
SSDI: Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits
Social Security is a government program that pays benefits to residents of the United States who have worked long enough and are now unable to work due to a medical condition. If you are suffering from a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year and/or is terminal, you are eligible to apply for social security disability insurance benefits. Here at The Law Office of Fred S. London, P.C. in Baltimore, we can answer any questions you may have about SSDI or SSI.
SSI: Supplemental Security Income Benefits
Supplemental security income benefits are funded from the United States Treasury general funds. SSI is a government program that pays benefits to low-income U.S. residents who are either 65 years or age or older, blind, or disabled. You do not need to have worked for any specific amount of time to be eligible for supplemental security income benefits.
