Need Social Security Benefits? Downey, California Social Security lawyers  can help

Has an injury kept you from working? The social security disability system was designed to help those who are unable to work because of a disability. Qualifying is not always easy. That is why it is important to work with an experienced Downey social security attorney when you apply or appeal a case. Once you fill out the form on the left, an experienced Downey social security attorney will call you promptly. By speaking with the attorney, you are under no obligation whatsoever.

The consequences of your SSI and SSDI application and appeal

It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. An experienced Downey social security lawyer can walk you through the application process. If you have been denied, he or she can walk you through the appeal process. Your lawyer should have ample experienced understanding what the social security administration is looking for when they review your application. In addition, your attorney can best highlight your condition so that the true nature of your disability is best understood. If you win your claim, you will be entitled to a monthly benefit payment from the federal government. In many cases, you can also qualify for medical care. For example, SSDI claimants can potentially qualify for Medicare benefits, while SSI claimants qualify for Medicaid benefits.

Qualified Downey Social Security lawyers: are they expensive?

Most people can actually afford a social security lawyer, even those without jobs. 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 no expendable money. 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 Downey Social Security attorney will contact you.

Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?

SSI (Social Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security disability Insurance) are two separate programs that pay claimants who are disabled. The disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. While both programs are federal disability programs, they are quite different from each other.

Do you qualify for SSDI? – Work with a Knowledgeable Downey Disability Insurance Attorney Soon

To receive payments under the SSDI plan, you must have worked a percentage of the previous years (depending on your age). Thus, only those with a work history can qualify. Beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicare coverage. Speak with an experienced Downey SSDI lawyer to learn more.

SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Downey 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 Downey SSI attorney.

The process: Application to appeal - Downey 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. If you are denied, you can appeal your case.
