Has a disability kept you from supporting yourself or your family? The social security disability system was designed to help those who are unable to work because of a disability.

By filling out the questionnaire on the left, you can contact an experienced Bolingbrook social security attorney. It is time to get the help you need.
What does SSI and SSDI mean for you?
The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. Often success hinges on whether you have made out the best case for your disability to the review board. Bolingbrook social security lawyers have experienced understanding how to present your best case. By working with an attorney, you will not have to second-guess whether you have done the best job highlighting what the social security administration is looking for. For many applicants, they face the possibility of homelessness if their SSI or SSDI application is denied. The social security system provides monthly payments that make living in this expensive country manageable. In many cases, claimants also qualify for critical medical coverage through the social security system. SSI claimants can get Medicaid, while SSDI claimants may qualify for Medicare.
Aren’t lawyers expensive to hire? How can I hire a qualified Bolingbrook social security lawyer?
You do not have to have a pool of money to afford a social security lawyer. The usual fee structure of a social security lawyer is designed so that it is affordable for people who are not employed. Almost always, Social Security lawyers work on a “contingency” basis: meaning that they only get paid if you win your claim. That means, in most cases, you have nothing to lose by working with a social security attorney. First off, a social security attorney is legally not allowed to charge more than 25% of the back pay/past due benefits awarded to you, up to a maximum of $6,000. Second, you are insured not to pay more than that because the government must approve of the attorney’s fee before you are required to pay the attorney for his services. There is no reason to contact an experienced Bolingbrook Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.
Education: SSDI versus SSI
Two separate social security programs provide disability payments to injured people: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). To earn disability payments under either one, you must suffer from an injury that (1) prevents you from working for a year or more, or (2) will result in death. Short-term injuries are not covered by the social security system.

If you have a work history of paying into social security, you may be eligible for SSDI payments. SSDI is a natural insurance program that pays those who are disabled and have a qualifying work history (the duration of your previous work depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Learn more by contacting an experienced Bolingbrook SSDI attorney.
SSI: You may qualify - Reach a qualified Bolingbrook Disability Attorney
SSI is truly a last line of defense for those who are disabled and have no money. SSI is welfare-based, which means that it is paid out regardless of your work history (unlike SSDI). SSI recipients receive monthly checks, and may also qualify for aid from the state, food stamps, and Medicaid. Don’t wait.Contact an experienced Bolingbrook SSI lawyer today.
