If you live in New Hampshire
This page provides information useful to residents of the state of New Hampshire. Additionally, we include some information on Social Security offices in the capital, Concord, and some very useful information on free medical care throughout NH.
New Hampshire may be one of the smallest states, but we're also one of the most beautiful. From the "Live free of die" motto, to "The granite state," our great state is known for our New England roots and independent stance. Our tradition of self-sufficiency has served us well - our work force is hard working and loyal. Our citizens are rightly proud of the quality of life they've achieved by this hard work. However, when injury causes a worker to stop earning a wage, the quality of life for the worker and family can suddenly plunge with no way out. Except for the light at the end of the tunnel offered by the Social Security Administration's disability insurance program. An injured citizen who qualifies may receive monthly financial assistance through SSA benefits.
Regardless of where in New Hampshire you reside, the consequences of a disability are much more than physical discomfort, medical care, loss of function. In addition to the stress of the disability itself, there is the financial strain when the cost of medical bills is added to everyday household expenses. Social Security disability benefits often provide the only way that many NH families are able to stay afloat.
When things are going good, it is very difficult to imagine how quickly life can change. But the truth for most workers is that if they can't work, they can't earn, and if there's no money, there's no quality of life. And the problem with an injury is not only the job loss - there's also the added stress and financial burden of medical care. We strongly recommend that if you are an injured party, that you carefully read this site, pay a visit to your local Social Security Administration office (Concord office is below) and find out as much as you can about what you need to do to qualify. Pay attention to the deadlines and the medical requirements. File as quickly as you can - remember that there are many others filing and there is always a delay caused by the volume of applicants. So be prepared with good medical records, and be informed as to all other documentation and deadline information. While 60-70% of the first time applicants are denied, your chances improve if you can comply with all requests for information.

In order to qualify, you need to prove to the government's satisfaction that you are truly disabled. But it is often a process that can be overwhelming and too much for the average person to handle on their own.
To start the social security disability (SSD) or supplemental security income (SSI) benefits application process, you have several options. You can apply in person at your local New Hampshire Social Security Administration office, you can call the national toll-free hotline or you can apply online at the SSA website. Your fourth option is to call a social security disability benefits advocate. While it isn't mandatory to have a disability benefits lawyer help you through every portion of the claims process, their knowledge of SSD and SSI regulations can assist you with avoiding much of the red tape involved in getting your case resolved successfully.
