Your SSI or SSDI application: it makes a big difference
More than half of the initial applicants are rejected for social security every year. An experienced Naples social security lawyer can increase your odds of success. Your attorney should understand how to make your best case. Your attorney can also represent you on appeal. An experienced Naples social security lawyer will look over your file, and help you make any additions and corrections necessary to best highlight the nature of your disability. For many applicants, they face the possibility of homelessness if their SSI or SSDI application is denied. The social security system provides monthly payments that make living in this expensive country manageable. In many cases, claimants also qualify for critical medical coverage through the social security system. SSI claimants can get Medicaid, while SSDI claimants may qualify for Medicare.
Qualified Naples 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. 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 Naples Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.
Learning about the SSI and SSDI programs
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 Naples Disability Insurance Attorney Today
SSDI pays disability payments to those who have a qualifying work history, who are disabled. For that reason, not everyone is eligible for SSDI. To qualify, you will have to show, in addition to proving your disability, that you have worked a certain percentage of your previous years (depending on your age). Medicare medical coverage is also available to some SSDI recipients. Contact your Naples SSDI lawyer to learn more now.
SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Naples 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 Naples SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.
