Fill out the form on the left and contact an experienced Longview social security disability attorney today. Don’t wait, help is right around the corner.

The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. The application and appeal process can sometimes be difficult to navigate through. For example, you will need to understand the best method of presenting proof of your disability. An experienced Longview social security lawyer can really help with that process. The consequences of losing your social security claim can have serious consequences. Those who qualify get monthly payments to live off. In many cases, you can also get Medicare or Medicaid. These payments and other potential benefits often mean the difference between survival and homelessness for those suffering from disabilities.

How can I afford a Social Security lawyer when I can’t work?

Contrary to what people think about lawyers, Social Security lawyers tend to be very affordable. 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 system oversees the amount a social security attorney can charge. For example, they are capped at making 25% of the back pay awarded to you. Even then, they can only make a maximum of $6,000 on your case.

Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?

Understanding how the Social Security disability program works is important. There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits to those who cannot work for a year or more due to a disability: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). Both programs require that you suffer from a disability to qualify, but each program has other separate requirements for eligibility.

Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) – Work with a Knowledgeable Longview Disability Insurance Attorney Today

SSDI is a federal insurance program that pays disability benefits to people who have paid into the social security system.  To qualify, you must be disabled and have a work history of paying social security taxes. Thus, not everyone can qualify. Those who do qualify may also be eligible for Medicare coverage, depending on the duration of your disability. Contact an SSDI attorney to learn if you may qualify.

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

If you have no or too little work history, are disabled, and make below a certain threshold of money, you may qualify for SSI. SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, is a welfare-based program. The benefits are paid out of general tax revenues and are not contingent on your work history. The monthly benefit provides a basic amount, which may be enhanced by your state. You may also qualify for food stamps and Medicaid. You can contact an experienced Longview SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.

The process: Application to appeal - Longview 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. Usually, you have to wait anywhere between three and six months, maybe longer. If denied, you can appeal the decision. You may have an attorney represent you at the appeal.
