Your SSI or SSDI application: it makes a big difference

Roughly 65 – 75% of applicants are initially denied for social security benefits. Increase your chances of winning your Social Security claim by contacting an experienced Chester Social Security lawyer. Your attorney should have the necessary experience to understand how to make out your best case. This may include working with your doctors, or having you seek a new cost-effective examination that can help make out your case. Successful claimants receive critical monthly payments from the federal government. SSI recipients can receive a monthly payment, food stamps, and potentially Medicaid to cover health care costs. SSDI recipients receive monthly payments based on the amount they paid into the system, among other factors. Also, SSDI recipients sometimes qualify for Medicare.

Qualified Chester Social Security lawyers: are they expensive?

If you think you can’t afford a social security attorney, think again. They’re not as expensive as you probably think. Social security attorneys are paid according to a strict fee schedule. They can only be paid if they win your case for you. That makes sense because claimants usually have not expendable money. Thankfully, the government has placed restrictions on how much a social security lawyer can charge a claimant. Specifically, they cannot charge you more than 25% of the past due benefits that are awarded to you. Even then, that 25% figure cannot exceed $6,000 total. So, claimants are always protected by the social security system. Contacting you Chester Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

SSDI and SSI, which one is right for you?

The Social Security system was created in part, to provide disability payments to our most vulnerable citizens: those who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must keep you from working for at least a year or more. Under the system, there are two types of disability programs: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both are explained below.

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 Chester SSDI lawyer to learn about your options.
