Why seek help applying for SSI or SSDI benefits?
The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. Qualifying for social security benefits requires proof of your disability. Experienced Abilene social security lawyers understand how to present your evidence in the most favorable light. For many, losing their social security claim has devastating consequences. Those who are disabled who do not have an alternative source of income potentially face homelessness. The SSI and SSDI systems provide monthly payments from the federal government for our most vulnerable citizens. These payments can cover the cost of living, and in some cases the SSI and SSDI systems also provide medical coverage.
Aren’t lawyers expensive to hire? How can I hire a qualified Abilene social security lawyer?
You do not have to have a pool of money to afford a social security lawyer. The usual fee structure of a social security lawyer is designed so that it is affordable for people who are not employed. 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 not expendable money. 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. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Abilene Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.
Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?
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: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Abilene Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately
SSDI provides disability payments to Americans who can demonstrate a work history of paying taxes into the social security system. To qualify, you must prove (1) the existence of a disability that prevents you from working for at least one year, and (2) that you worked and paid social security taxes over the course of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Contact an experienced Abilene SSDI lawyer now to learn more.
The federal SSI program – work with a qualified Abilene 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).
