What is the Social Security Administration?
It is sometimes surprising that many Americans, particularly younger ones, do not fully understand what the Social Security Administration (SSA) is or does. The SSA is an independent agency of the federal government that provides and administers a type of social insurance that includes retirement benefits, disability insurance and benefits and survivor's benefits to families who have lost the wage earner in their family.
Simply put, the SSA was designed to help people when life takes a bad turn. Most of us pay into this system throughout our working years so that we can receive benefits when we need them. It is a huge responsibility and task to administer these benefits to Americans, and the SSA has various measures put in place to make this easier. However, it can be frustrating when you are trying to communicate with and get help from such a massive organization. Despite the tremendous size of the SSA, the organization has not kept up with the increase in applications for benefits that has occurred over the past several decades.
An experienced Social Security attorney can provide valuable assistance to those applying for benefits from the SSA. Here at DAA, we have been providing this high-quality assistance and guidance for over 17 years. Ideally, we begin the process with you. This allows us to work most efficiently in our efforts to get your benefits approved with the initial application. Even if you are denied benefits, we are able to act rapidly and effectively on appeals and hearings when we have been at your side from the beginning.
