Your SSI or SSDI application: it makes a big difference

Roughly 65 – 75% of applicants are initially denied for social security benefits. Presenting proof of your disability is an important step toward qualifying. An experienced Miami Gardens 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.

What does the typical Miami Gardens Social Security lawyer cost to hire?

Social security lawyers are very affordable. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. The government limits how much a social security attorney can charge you. They are limited to charging the lesser of: 25% of the back pay awarded to you, or a maximum of $6,000. So, an attorney cannot make more than $6,000 on your case, nor can he or she make more than 25% of the back pay owed to you. Thus, if you are awarded $20,000 in back pay, generally the max you can be charged is $6,000. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Miami Gardens Social Security lawyer.
