Has the quality of your life suffered because of a disability? Are you now unable to work because of your disability?

That is why it is important to work with an experienced Denton social security attorney when you apply or appeal a case. Denton social security attorneys can walk you through the application and appeal process. Start now by filling out the form on the left.

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. Qualifying for social security benefits requires proof of your disability. Experienced Denton social security lawyers understand how to present your evidence in the most favorable light. For many applicants, they face the possibility of homelessness if their SSI or SSDI application is denied. The social security system provides monthly payments that make living in this expensive country manageable. In many cases, claimants also qualify for critical medical coverage through the social security system. SSI claimants can get Medicaid, while SSDI claimants may qualify for Medicare.

How much does a qualified Denton Social Security lawyer 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. Why are they affordable? Answer: they work on a “contingency” basis. That means they only get paid 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. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Denton Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.

Learning about SSDI and SSI: Your federal programs

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 Denton Disability Insurance Attorney Today

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 Denton SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Denton Disability Attorney

SSI is paid out like welfare, meaning you cannot earn over a certain amount of money to qualify. In addition, you need to be disabled and unable to work. SSI pays out a smaller amount of money than SSDI, but unlike SSDI, you are not required to have paid into the Social Security system to qualify for payments. In addition, SSI recipients qualify for medical care through Medicaid. To contact an experienced Denton SSI lawyer, fill out the questionnaire on the left.

The process: Application to appeal - Denton Disability Appeals Lawyer

Applicants can begin the process in multiple ways: online, over the phone, and in person. The government takes around four to six months to review your case. 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.
