Why seek help applying for SSI or SSDI benefits?

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. An experienced Compton 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 Compton 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.

Compton Social Security attorneys: how much do they cost?

Because the people who need a social security lawyer usually do not have a source of income, social security lawyers structure their fees to make their services affordable. 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. 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. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Compton Social Security attorney will contact you.

Learning about the SSI and SSDI programs

Disability payments under SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) are contingent upon you proving the existence of a disability. The disability must preclude you from working for a year or more. Disability payments are made monthly to those who qualify. Both SSDI and SSI programs are related, but different.

SSDI is a benefit program based on prior work history. For example, you must have worked a certain number of the past years (depending on your age) and paid into the social security system to receive disability payments. Some SSDI beneficiaries also qualify for Medicaid.

SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Compton Disability Attorney

If you have no or too little work history, are disabled, and make below a certain threshold of money, you may qualify for SSI. SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, is a welfare-based program. The benefits are paid out of general tax revenues and are not contingent on your work history. The monthly benefit provides a basic amount, which may be enhanced by your state. You may also qualify for food stamps and Medicaid. You can contact an experienced Compton SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.

The process: Application to appeal - Compton Disability Appeals Lawyer

You can start your application for social security online, in person, or by phone. The review process can take more than six months in some cases. In the event that the government denies your social security application, you can appeal your case. At the appeal, you can represent yourself or your attorney can represent you.
