Contact an experienced Encinitas social security disability attorney today by filling out the questionnaire on the left.

The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

Approximately 65% or more initial applicants are denied social security benefits. Presenting proof of your disability is an important step toward qualifying. An experienced Encinitas social security lawyer can help you make your most compelling case to the review board. Your chance of success increases this way. 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.

Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a social security lawyer?

Contrary to what people think about lawyers, Social Security lawyers tend to be very affordable. The reason why: you do not pay a Social Security lawyer unless he or she wins your claim. That means they only get paid if you get paid. In fact, the federal government actually caps the amount that a social security attorney can charge. First, they are generally limited to a maximum of 25% of the back pay owed to you (as opposed to future payments). That means that if you are owed $10,000 in payments from the months prior to your decision, the attorney can only make $2,500. Second, a social security lawyer cannot make more than $6,000 from your case, total. There is no reason to contact an experienced Encinitas Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

Social Security: Qualifying for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) or Social Security Income (SSI)

Two separate social security programs provide disability payments to injured people: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). To earn disability payments under either one, you must suffer from an injury that (1) prevents you from working for a year or more, or (2) will result in death. Short-term injuries are not covered by the social security system.

SSDI - Contact an experienced Encinitas Disability Insurance Attorney Now

SSDI is a program for Americans who have a work history. To qualify, you must be disabled, and have worked and paid into the social security system for a fraction of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. If you think you may qualify for SSDI, contact an experienced Encinitas SSDI attorney soon to discuss your options.

SSI: You may qualify - Reach a qualified Encinitas Disability Attorney

The SSI system provides monthly payments, of a minimum amount, to disabled people. The benefits are paid regardless of whether you previously paid into the Social Security System. Although payments are generally lower under SSI, the funds help those who critically need it. In addition, successful claimants may also qualify for medical care through Medicaid. Fill out the form to contact an experienced Encinitas SSI lawyer.

The Process, Appeals and Applications - Encinitas Disability Appeals Lawyer

You can begin the application process online, in person, or by phone. The process can take a while because the number of applications is generally very high.
