The difference between winning your SSI or SSDI claim and losing it

Approximately 65% or more initial applicants are denied social security benefits. Often success hinges on whether you have made out the best case for your disability to the review board. Orange social security lawyers have experienced understanding how to present your best case. By working with an attorney, you will not have to second-guess whether you have done the best job highlighting what the social security administration is looking for. 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.

Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a social security lawyer?

Most people can actually afford a social security lawyer, even those without jobs. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. In fact, the federal government actually caps the amount that a social security attorney can charge. First, they are generally limited to a maximum of 25% of the back pay owed to you (as opposed to future payments). That means that if you are owed $10,000 in payments from the months prior to your decision, the attorney can only make $2,500. Second, a social security lawyer cannot make more than $6,000 from your case, total. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Orange Social Security attorney will contact you.

Eligibility for either SSDI or SSI

Disability payments under SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) are contingent upon you proving the existence of a disability. The disability must preclude you from working for a year or more. Disability payments are made monthly to those who qualify. Both SSDI and SSI programs are related, but different.

Do you qualify for SSDI? – Work with a Knowledgeable Orange Disability Insurance Attorney Soon

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: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Orange Disability Attorney

Supplemental Security Income, or SSI for short, is available for people who suffer from a disability regardless of work history. SSI is paid from general revenues, unlike the SSDI system. SSI beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicaid and Food Stamps. They may also be eligible for additional income from the state. Contact your Orange SSI lawyer to learn more.

Application to Appeal: the process - Orange Disability Appeal Lawyer

You can start your application for social security online, in person, or by phone. The review process can take more than six months in some cases. In the event that the government denies your social security application, you can appeal your case. At the appeal, you can represent yourself or your attorney can represent you.
