You may be entitled to benefits: the SSI and SSDI program at a glance

It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. Qualifying for social security benefits requires proof of your disability. Experienced Clearwater social security lawyers understand how to present your evidence in the most favorable light. For many people, social security payments mean the difference between falling through society’s cracks and safety. This is because social security was designed to help those who are most vulnerable: those who suffer from a disability and who cannot work. For those who qualify, social security provides a safety net of monthly checks for the duration of your disability, in addition to other potential benefits such as medical care coverage and assistance from your state.

How do people afford to pay qualified Clearwater Social Security lawyers?

Just about anyone can afford a social security lawyer. Unlike many other types of attorneys, social security lawyers do not require you to pay big out of pocket expenses. 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. The social security administration carefully monitors how much a social security attorney charges. The attorneys are statutorily limited to charging a max of 25% of back pay awarded to you (up to a max of $6,000). That means that in most cases you can only be required to pay money that was already owed to you before you received your social security benefits, and even that amount is limited. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Clearwater Social Security attorney will contact you.

SSDI and SSI, which one is right for you?

Disability benefits under Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are given to applicants who cannot work due to a disability. Generally, the disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. Benefits under SSI and SSDI are different.

Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) – Work with a Knowledgeable Clearwater Disability Insurance Attorney Today

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 Clearwater SSDI lawyer to learn about your options.

SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Clearwater 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. Learn more now and contact an experienced Clearwater SSI attorney.
