Rhode Island Social Security Disability Lawyer

We Can Help You File or Appeal Your Claim

For workers in the United States, the federal government deducts a portion of their paycheck to fund our Social Security system. Part of this goes to building a reserve for workers who become disabled and are no longer able to earn an income. While the system is based on noble principles, it seems at times to turn its back on the very people who help fund it.

The truth is, the vast majority of Social Security Disability claims will initially be denied. However, with the help of a skilled lawyer, individuals can challenge the ruling and gain access to the benefits that they need and deserve, including a monthly income and Medicare benefits.

Helping Disabled Workers Obtain Social Security Benefits

The attorneys of Audette, Cordeiro & Violette have a long history of helping disabled people obtain Social Security benefits. As members of the National Organization of Social Security Claims Representatives, we have the knowledge and experience to help clients navigate the claims from the application to the appeals process.

Social Security Disability laws are complex, but our firm takes the time to fully explain your rights and options, as we fight to obtain the benefits you deserve. When you work with our firm, no fee is charged for your SSDI case unless your claim is successful, and all fees will be approved by the Social Security Administration.

What is the Difference Between SSDI and SSI?

Understanding the difference between Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is helpful when evaluating your claim and legal options.

  • Social Security Disability (SSDI) - These benefits are available to individuals who have paid into the Social Security system and are now no longer to work due to injury or disability.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) - SSI is entirely separate from the Social Security Disability. It is a federal program that offers cash to individuals with little or no income. Beneficiaries must meet the necessary requirements to be eligible.

Because these are two entirely separate programs, it is possible to qualify for both. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can rest assured that you will receive the benefits you deserve.
