Are you considering applying for Social Security because of a disability? Social security may provide the solution. The social security system is not always easy to work with. That is why there are experienced Omaha social security attorneys. Whether you have been rejected for benefits, or if you have yet to apply, an experienced Omaha social security disability attorney can increase your chances of success. You can contact an experienced Omaha social security disability attorney by filling out the form on the left. You are under absolutely no obligation merely by filling out the form.
Why seek help applying for SSI or SSDI benefits?
The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. Do not make the mistake of gambling with your odds of winning. An experienced Omaha social security lawyer knows how to present proof of your disability in the most advantageous way. You can really have a leg up by working with a seasoned professional. 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 Omaha Social Security lawyers?
You do not have to have a pool of money to afford a social security lawyer. The usual fee structure of a social security lawyer is designed so that it is affordable for people who are not employed. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. First off, a social security attorney is legally not allowed to charge more than 25% of the back pay/past due benefits awarded to you, up to a maximum of $6,000. Second, you are insured not to pay more than that because the government must approve of the attorney’s fee before you are required to pay the attorney for his services. There is no reason to contact an experienced Omaha Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.
Learning about the SSI and SSDI programs
SSI (Social Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security disability Insurance) are two separate programs that pay claimants who are disabled. The disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. While both programs are federal disability programs, they are quite different from each other.
SSDI: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Omaha Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately
If you have a work history of paying into social security, you may be eligible for SSDI payments. SSDI is a natural insurance program that pays those who are disabled and have a qualifying work history (the duration of your previous work depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Learn more by contacting an experienced Omaha SSDI attorney.
SSI: the final safety net - Contact an experienced Omaha Disability Attorney
SSI, unlike SSDI, is a welfare-based program that pays those with disabilities, regardless of their work history. To qualify, claimants must make less than a minimum threshold of income (a very small amount). Those who qualify may also be eligible for food stamps, and Medicaid. Learn more now and contact an experienced Omaha SSI attorney.
How does the application and appeal process work? - Omaha Disability Appeals attorney
Applicants can begin the process in multiple ways: online, over the phone, and in person. The government takes around four to six months to review your case. If you have been denied, you can appeal your case. At appeal, you will have to prove that your condition qualifies as a disability. If you do not feel comfortable appearing on your own behalf, an attorney may present your case for you.
