For many, losing their social security claim has devastating consequences. Those who are disabled who do not have an alternative source of income potentially face homelessness. The SSI and SSDI systems provide monthly payments from the federal government for our most vulnerable citizens. These payments can cover the cost of living, and in some cases the SSI and SSDI systems also provide medical coverage.
Brunswick Social Security attorneys: how much do they cost?
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.Contacting you Brunswick Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.
Education: SSDI versus SSI
When people refer to social security disability: they may either be referring to SSDI or SSI (Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income). Both programs are federal programs. Both programs provide benefits to disabled people who cannot work (for at least one year). They do have some important differences though. Its important to understand which one you may qualify for.
SSDI: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Brunswick Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately
SSDI pays disability payments to those who have a qualifying work history, who are disabled. For that reason, not everyone is eligible for SSDI. To qualify, you will have to show, in addition to proving your disability, that you have worked a certain percentage of your previous years (depending on your age). Medicare medical coverage is also available to some SSDI recipients. Contact your Brunswick SSDI lawyer to learn more now.
SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Brunswick 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.
