Applying for SSI or SSDI can make a serious difference
It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. An experienced Brandon social security lawyer can increase your odds of success. Your attorney should understand how to make your best case. Your attorney can also represent you on appeal. An experienced Brandon social security lawyer will look over your file, and help you make any additions and corrections necessary to best highlight the nature of your disability. 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.
Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a 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. Why? Social Security attorneys only get paid if you get paid. This fee structure is called a “contingency” fee. 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. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Brandon Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.
SSDI and SSI Eligibility
The federal government created Social Security for a number of reasons. One of those reasons was to provide benefits to Americans who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must last at least one year, and prevent you from working. There are two different programs that give rise to disability payments under the Social Security System: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both programs provide relief to injured Americans, but they are different from each other.
SSDI: Federal Workers Insurance for the Disabled - Contact a Knowledgeable Brandon Disability Insurance Attorney Today
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 Brandon SSDI attorney.
SSI: the final safety net - Contact an experienced Brandon 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 Brandon SSI lawyer today.
