SSI and SSDI: your safety net

The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. Presenting proof of your disability is an important step toward qualifying. An experienced Kenosha social security lawyer can help you make your most compelling case to the review board. Your chance of success increases this way. 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.

How do people afford to pay qualified Kenosha Social Security lawyers?

If you think you can’t afford a social security attorney, think again. They’re not as expensive as you probably think. 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. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Kenosha Social Security attorney will contact you.

What is the difference between SSDI and 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: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Kenosha Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately

SSDI is a benefit program based on prior work history. For example, you must have worked a certain number of the past years (depending on your age) and paid into the social security system to receive disability payments. Some SSDI beneficiaries also qualify for Medicaid.

SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Kenosha Disability Attorney

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

How does the application and appeal process work? - Kenosha Disability Appeals attorney

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. Usually, you have to wait anywhere between three and six months, maybe longer. In the event that the government denies your social security application, you can appeal your case. At the appeal, you can represent yourself or your attorney can represent you.
