Your Franklin, Massachusetts Social Security Disability Benefits Claim

Being denied a Social Security Disability claim negatively affects your whole family, especially if these benefits are the main income source. Unfortunately, applications for Social Security disability benefits are denied all the time. However, just because there has been an initial denial, it does not mean that you are not entitled to the benefits. 

If your Social Security benefits have been denied, don’t abandon the claim, instead let the Law Office of James F. White make the necessary appeal to recover the benefits that you are owed. We have the experience and knowledge-base that allows us to represent individuals throughout both the application and appeals process. 

If you are unable to work due to an injury or disability, there are two government programs that offer monthly benefits to disabled individuals: 

  • Disability Insurance Benefits 
  • Supplemental Security Income

Social Security Disability Vs. Supplemental Security Income

Social security disability (SSD) insurance and supplemental security income are different, but there can be a great deal of confusion surrounding the two. Social security disability insurance benefits are based on work credits and if you are seeking SSD, you will typically have one of the following disabilities or health-concerns: 

  • Cancer
  • Physical Impairments 
  • Mental Disorders
  • Immune System Disorders 
  • Neurological Disorders

Supplemental security income is only available to individuals 65 or older who have insufficient income or resources. If you have been injured and you have been denied social security disability, we are here to help you receive your benefits.

How to Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits?

If you are eligible, applying sooner rather than later is going to ensure that your benefits are awarded to you as quickly as possible. To apply for these benefits, you will have to make an appointment with a Social Security Administration representative or apply online.

Attorney White represented me in a motor vehicle injury case. This was the first time we were involved in a case like this and I was not sure what to expect. I am so pleased to have found him. He went above and beyond anything I could hope for and I would highly recommend him. Not only was he able to get a very positive outcome, but he took a personal interest in my complicated case. He spent time understanding the case from my side and working to make it the strongest case possible. It really felt like he cared about me and my family and was doing 100% to advocate for us. I would highly recommend him!

Attorney White recently represented me in a case in which I was involved in a motorcycle accident. I was seriously injured, requiring lengthy stays in the hospital and rehab facility. Jim familiarized himself with the extent of my injuries, and took all the worries away, handling everything in a professional manner. He and his paralegal Kristie were both in touch with my wife and me through the entire ordeal answering any questions we had, and keeping us up to date through the entire process. Attorney White was able to obtain the highest possible settlement for my case for which I am eternally grateful.

Mary G.

I am writing on behalf of my father, George Gagne, who at 87 was injured as a passenger in an automobile accident. In all of his driving years, George had never submitted a claim for an injury and had no idea where to begin. Jim took care of all of the details with compassion and professionalism, allowing my dad the peace of mind to focus on healing. Our family is beyond thankful to Jim for George's positive outcome and would highly recommend his services to anyone.
