The Eichholz Law Firm understands the complexities of government benefits and how the application process works. Without consulting an experienced government benefits lawyer, individuals risk application delays that may take months or even years. There are thousands of people who will represent themselves and are rejected on the first application submission. This leads to eligible applicants believing that they are not qualified for any benefits or disability.
Government benefits may take on one of a number of forms. The government program can either be administered by the federal or state government. Some programs are federal programs, but they are administered by the states. Health insurance under the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid are handled at the state level.
In addition to Social Security Disability and veterans benefits, there are many other different kinds of government benefits that are available. Whether or not one qualifies for these benefits depends on several factors, including income level. Here are some other government benefit programs that are in existence.
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families
- Section 8 Housing Vouchers
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
Beyond these programs, there are hundreds of government benefits that are available to eligible individuals. Each one of these programs will have their own eligibility rules and means to apply to the program.
Individuals who are disabled and are unable to work may be qualified to receive disability benefits from either the Social Security Administration or from the Veterans Administration. Our personal injury law firm handles both veteran’s benefits cases and social security disability cases for individuals who are eligible but have been rejected.
