What is Social Security Disability Insurance?
Social Security Disability Insurance, sometimes known as SSDI or even simply ‘disability,’ is part of the Social Security program. The SSDI program pays benefits to disabled workers – and occasionally their family members – who are unable to work due to illness or impairment.
How much do your SSDI services cost?
At Price-Jones Law, we only get paid if we win your case.
How long does the SSDI process take?
Depending on how far along your case is when you come to us, SSDI cases in Indiana can take anywhere from a few months to a year.
What happens if you apply for SSDI and you are denied?
If you’ve already faced a denial when you applied for social security disability, that doesn’t mean there’s no hope for your case. Jones-Price Law is here to help you tackle the appeals process.
What is the difference between Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income?
Individuals must achieve certain requirements to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance. On the other hand, Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is available for individuals who haven’t worked or earned enough in a quarter to qualify for SSDI.
What are the types of Adoption in Indiana?
There are four basic types of adoption in Indiana and throughout the United States:
Public agency adoption
Domestic private agency adoption
Independent adoption/Private adoption
How long does the adoption process in Indiana take?
The adoption process can vary based on the type. However, most adoptive parents can meet all the state’s requirements in six to 12 months for a public agency adoption. Due to the increased stipulations and higher activity of both parties in a private agency adoption, they can potentially take longer.
What is guardianship?
Guardianship is a lesser-known alternative to adoption in the state of Indiana. The state can authorize a guardian to care for minor children. Legally speaking, this is a less complicated alternative to adoption, making it a more straightforward and smoother process to bring your family together.
What if I’m wrongfully accused of a crime?
It can be scary to face a wrongful accusation – especially knowing the potential prison sentence that may loom over your head for a crime you didn’t commit. If you’ve been wrongfully accused, you need a determined and dedicated Indiana criminal defense attorney more than ever.
