The difference between winning your SSI or SSDI claim and losing it

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. If you have a disability, you will want to make sure you do the best job presenting the nature of your injury to the review board. Most often, the best way to do this is to work with an experienced Akron social security lawyer. Arm yourself with a professional who understands the best tactics for winning your social security claim. Those who face real disabilities potentially face hunger and homelessness. Winning your claim can provide a necessary safety net to our most vulnerable citizens. Successful claimants receive monthly payments from the federal government to cover those critical expenses. Many claimants also qualify for medical services through Medicare and Medicaid.

Aren’t lawyers expensive to hire? How can I hire a qualified Akron social security lawyer?

You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. When you hire a social security attorney, you only pay them attorney fees if you win your claim. So, you only pay if you get paid. Social Security regulations set a cap for attorney fees. As of June 2009, the cap is $6,000. Also, attorneys can only receive their money from the past due benefits awarded to you, a max of 25%. So, the most a social security lawyer can charge is: the smaller amount of 25% of your past due benefits or $6,000. Contact your Akron Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.

Social Security: Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI

Disability benefits under Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are given to applicants who cannot work due to a disability. Generally, the disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. Benefits under SSI and SSDI are different.

SSDI: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Akron Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately

SSDI provides disability payments to Americans who can demonstrate a work history of paying taxes into the social security system. To qualify, you must prove (1) the existence of a disability that prevents you from working for at least one year, and (2) that you worked and paid social security taxes over the course of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Contact an experienced Akron SSDI lawyer now to learn more.

SSI, unlike SSDI, is a welfare-based program that pays those with disabilities, regardless of their work history. To qualify, claimants must make less than a minimum threshold of income (a very small amount). Those who qualify may also be eligible for food stamps, and Medicaid.
