Social Security Administration
Maryland Social Security Disability Lawyers
The Social Security Administration (SSA) is an agency within the United States federal government that administers several forms of social insurance to eligible individuals and families in various federal programs. While the SSA oversees programs for retirement benefits, Medicare, and survivors’ benefits, it also oversees the two largest federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities:
The SSA maintains its Central Office, or headquarters, in Woodlawn, Maryland, which is just west of Baltimore. There are also numerous regional offices, processing centers and field offices throughout the country.
What is the Social Security Administration?
Sometimes referred to as the “face of the government,” the SSA manages what are known as social insurance programs. First created in 1935 as part of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, the SSA and its various programs are funded by taxes paid through Americans’ work wages, which lends substance to the collective and democratic nature of our nation. The SSA highlights America’s focus on protecting the rights and well-being of all citizens, and it has become an essential part of our country’s social fabric.
Although these programs have faced political controversy, they still remain an important social safety net that allow people in need to obtain the support they not only deserve, but also the support that they have earned through working and paying their taxes. If you or your loved one is looking to navigate the Social Security disability claim process, our legal team is here to help.

Although the SSA functions as a provider and beneficial asset to our nation, it still remains a bureaucratic maze of confusion for the many Americans who wish to file for disability benefits.
