Need Social Security? Albany, Georgia Social Security lawyers can help
Do you have a disability? Does that disability keep you from seeking gainful employment? You may be entitled to benefits under the social security disability income system. The system is designed to provide benefits to citizens who cannot work due to disability. By working with an experienced Albany social security attorney, you stand a better chance of qualifying for social security benefits. You can contact an experienced Albany social security disability attorney by filling out the form on the left. You are under absolutely no obligation merely by filling out the form.
SSI and SSDI: your safety net
If you have already applied and been rejected for social security benefits, you are among the majority. Qualifying for social security benefits requires proof of your disability. Experienced Albany social security lawyers understand how to present your evidence in the most favorable light. 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.
How do people afford to pay qualified Albany Social Security lawyers?
Social security lawyers are very affordable. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. Your social security attorney is limited in how much he or she can charge. That is because the federal government has capped attorney fees in these cases. Specifically, the attorney cannot charge more than 25% of your back pay, up to a total of $6,000. Even then, the government has to approve the final award of attorney fees. So, a claimant is always getting a fair deal. There is no reason to contact an experienced Albany Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.
What is the difference between SSDI and SSI?
Disability payments under SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) are contingent upon you proving the existence of a disability. The disability must preclude you from working for a year or more. Disability payments are made monthly to those who qualify. Both SSDI and SSI programs are related, but different.
SSDI - Contact an experienced Albany Disability Insurance Attorney Now
To qualify for SSDI monthly payments, you must establish a work history of paying into social security as well as a qualifying disability. So, not everyone qualifies for the SSDI program. Those who receive disability payments under SSDI may also qualify for Medicare coverage. Contact an experienced Albany SSDI lawyer to learn about your options.
SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Albany Disability Attorney
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. Learn more now and contact an experienced Albany SSI attorney.
How does the application and appeal process work? - Albany Disability Appeals attorney
You can begin the application process online, in person, or by phone. The process can take a while because the number of applications is generally very high. Usually, you have to wait anywhere between three and six months, maybe longer. If you have been denied, you can appeal your case. At appeal, you will have to prove that your condition qualifies as a disability. If you do not feel comfortable appearing on your own behalf, an attorney may present your case for you.
