You may be entitled to benefits: the SSI and SSDI program at a glance

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 Orlando social security lawyer can help you make your most compelling case to the review board. Your chance of success increases this way. Successful claimants receive critical monthly payments from the federal government. SSI recipients can receive a monthly payment, food stamps, and potentially Medicaid to cover health care costs. SSDI recipients receive monthly payments based on the amount they paid into the system, among other factors. Also, SSDI recipients sometimes qualify for Medicare.

What does the typical Orlando Social Security lawyer cost to hire?

Although attorneys can be expensive, a social security attorney is affordable, even for someone who does not have a job. 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. The social security administration carefully monitors how much a social security attorney charges. The attorneys are statutorily limited to charging a max of 25% of back pay awarded to you (up to a max of $6,000). That means that in most cases you can only be required to pay money that was already owed to you before you received your social security benefits, and even that amount is limited. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Orlando Social Security attorney will contact you.

Learning about SSDI and SSI: Your federal programs

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.

SSDI - Contact an experienced Orlando Disability Insurance Attorney Now

SSDI is a federal insurance program that pays disability benefits to people who have paid into the social security system.  To qualify, you must be disabled and have a work history of paying social security taxes. Thus, not everyone can qualify. Those who do qualify may also be eligible for Medicare coverage, depending on the duration of your disability. Contact an SSDI attorney to learn if you may qualify.

SSI: the final safety net - Contact an experienced Orlando Disability Attorney

The SSI system is designed to provide a minimum threshold of income to those who are disabled, blind, or 65 and older, who do not make much money. Those who qualify receive a monthly check (usually much less than SSDI amounts). You may also receive more money from your state. Unlike SSDI, claims are paid from general tax revenues. Thus, you do not need to have paid into the social security system to qualify for SSI payments. Those who qualify for SSI also may receive Medicaid coverage from the government (Medical Care). Fill out the form to contact an experienced Orlando SSI lawyer.

The process: Application to appeal - Orlando Disability Appeals Lawyer

To apply for social security, you can start online, in person, or by calling the social security administration directly. The government can take upward of six months to review your case. If you are denied, you can appeal your case.
