The SSI and SSDI system: a real safety net
It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. By working with an experienced Bismarck social security lawyer, you can increase your chances of success because you will be working with someone who understands the criteria that the review board is looking for. The consequences of losing your social security claim can have serious consequences. Those who qualify get monthly payments to live off. In many cases, you can also get Medicare or Medicaid. These payments and other potential benefits often mean the difference between survival and homelessness for those suffering from disabilities.
How do people afford to pay qualified Bismarck Social Security lawyers?
If you think you can’t afford a social security attorney, think again. They’re not as expensive as you probably think. Why are they affordable? Answer: they work on a “contingency” basis. That means they only get paid 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. Contacting you Bismarck Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.
Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?
There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits in the social security system. They are SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance). Generally, to qualify for disability payments, you must have an injury that prevents you from working for one year or more or an injury that will result in death. Both programs pay on a monthly basis.

SSDI is a benefit program based on prior work history. For example, you must have worked a certain number of the past years (depending on your age) and paid into the social security system to receive disability payments. Some SSDI beneficiaries also qualify for Medicaid.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Bismarck Disability Attorney
SSI is paid out like welfare, meaning you cannot earn over a certain amount of money to qualify. In addition, you need to be disabled and unable to work. SSI pays out a smaller amount of money than SSDI, but unlike SSDI, you are not required to have paid into the Social Security system to qualify for payments. In addition, SSI recipients qualify for medical care through Medicaid. To contact an experienced Bismarck SSI lawyer, fill out the questionnaire on the left.
