Your SSI or SSDI application: it makes a big difference
Approximately 65% or more initial applicants are denied social security benefits. Do not make the mistake of gambling with your odds of winning. An experienced Dothan social security lawyer knows how to present proof of your disability in the most advantageous way. You can really have a leg up by working with a seasoned professional. The difference between winning your social security claim and losing your social security claim are often dramatic. For example, without an alternative source of income, and without the ability to work (due to disability), many people face homelessness and hunger..The relief provided by the monthly payments from SSI and SSDI claims provide a necessary security blanket. In some cases, claimants may be entitled to medical care through the Medicaid or Medicare systems.
How do people afford to pay qualified Dothan Social Security lawyers?
Most people can actually afford a social security lawyer, even those without jobs. 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. There is no reason to contact an experienced Dothan Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.
Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?
Understanding how the Social Security disability program works is important. There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits to those who cannot work for a year or more due to a disability: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). Both programs require that you suffer from a disability to qualify, but each program has other separate requirements for eligibility.
SSDI - Contact an experienced Dothan Disability Insurance Attorney Now
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 Dothan SSDI lawyer to learn about your options.
SSI: the final safety net - Contact an experienced Dothan Disability Attorney
The SSI system is designed to provide a minimum threshold of income to those who are disabled, blind, or 65 and older, who do not make much money. Those who qualify receive a monthly check (usually much less than SSDI amounts). You may also receive more money from your state. Unlike SSDI, claims are paid from general tax revenues. Thus, you do not need to have paid into the social security system to qualify for SSI payments. Those who qualify for SSI also may receive Medicaid coverage from the government (Medical Care). Fill out the form to contact an experienced Dothan SSI lawyer.
The Process, Appeals and Applications - Dothan 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. Once you get your results, you will either receive a notice of payments, or you will be denied. In which case, you can appeal the decision in person or have your attorney appear on your behalf.
