Your SSI or SSDI application: it makes a big difference
Statistically, between 65% and 70% of initial applications are denied nationally. Presenting proof of your disability is an important step toward qualifying. An experienced Portland social security lawyer can help you make your most compelling case to the review board. Your chance of success increases this way. The difference between winning your social security claim and losing your social security claim are often dramatic. For example, without an alternative source of income, and without the ability to work (due to disability), many people face homelessness and hunger..The relief provided by the monthly payments from SSI and SSDI claims provide a necessary security blanket. In some cases, claimants may be entitled to medical care through the Medicaid or Medicare systems.
How much does it cost to hire a qualified Portland Social Security Lawyer?
Because the people who need a social security lawyer usually do not have a source of income, social security lawyers structure their fees to make their services affordable. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. The social security system oversees the amount a social security attorney can charge. For example, they are capped at making 25% of the back pay awarded to you. Even then, they can only make a maximum of $6,000 on your case. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Portland Social Security attorney will contact you.
What is the Social Security Disability system? Education
The Social Security System can provide you with monthly payments if you qualify. To qualify for either the SSI (Supplemental Security Income) or SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) programs, you must meet their criteria. Generally, to qualify for either, you must suffer from an injury that prevents you from working for a year or more (or one that results in death). Both systems are explained below.
SSDI - Contact an experienced Portland Disability Insurance Attorney Now
Claimants can qualify for SSDI if they are disabled and have previously paid into the social security system through their taxes. So, you must have worked and paid social security taxes to qualify. The government also requires you to have worked a percentage of the previous years, contingent on your age. Some SSDI claimants also qualify for Medicare if they are disabled under the SSDI program for 2 years. Learn more by contacting an experienced SSDI attorney.
SSI – Work with an experienced Portland 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).
