Helping you move forward: SSI and SSDI benefits

The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. Increase your chances of winning your Social Security claim by contacting an experienced Monrovia Social Security lawyer. Your attorney should have the necessary experience to understand how to make out your best case. This may include working with your doctors, or having you seek a new cost-effective examination that can help make out your case. Those who face real disabilities potentially face hunger and homelessness. Winning your claim can provide a necessary safety net to our most vulnerable citizens. Successful claimants receive monthly payments from the federal government to cover those critical expenses. Many claimants also qualify for medical services through Medicare and Medicaid.

How do people afford to pay qualified Monrovia 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. In most every case, social security lawyers work on a “contingency” fee. That means they only get paid if you win your social security benefits claim. Social Security regulations set a cap for attorney fees.  As of June 2009, the cap is $6,000. Also, attorneys can only receive their money from the past due benefits awarded to you, a max of 25%. So, the most a social security lawyer can charge is: the smaller amount of 25% of your past due benefits or $6,000. Contact your Monrovia Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.

Education: SSDI versus SSI

There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits in the social security system. They are SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance). Generally, to qualify for disability payments, you must have an injury that prevents you from working for one year or more or an injury that will result in death. Both programs pay on a monthly basis.

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

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 is truly a last line of defense for those who are disabled and have no money. SSI is welfare-based, which means that it is paid out regardless of your work history (unlike SSDI). SSI recipients receive monthly checks, and may also qualify for aid from the state, food stamps, and Medicaid. Don’t wait. Contact an experienced Monrovia SSI lawyer today.
