The importance of winning your SSI or SSDI claim

Statistically, between 65% and 70% of initial applications are denied nationally. Often success hinges on whether you have made out the best case for your disability to the review board. Huntington social security lawyers have experienced understanding how to present your best case. By working with an attorney, you will not have to second-guess whether you have done the best job highlighting what the social security administration is looking for. 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.

Qualified Huntington Social Security lawyers: are they expensive?

Although attorneys can be expensive, a social security attorney is affordable, even for someone who does not have a job. Why? Social Security attorneys only get paid if you get paid. This fee structure is called a “contingency” fee. First off, a social security attorney is legally not allowed to charge more than 25% of the back pay/past due benefits awarded to you, up to a maximum of $6,000. Second, you are insured not to pay more than that because the government must approve of the attorney’s fee before you are required to pay the attorney for his services. Contacting you Huntington Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

The government also requires you to have worked a percentage of the previous years, contingent on your age.

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 Huntington SSI lawyer, fill out the questionnaire on the left.
