Are you considering applying for Social Security because of a disability? Thankfully, the social security system provides a safety net to many people.

Increase your chances of qualifying by working with an experienced Redondo Beach social security attorney now. Redondo Beach social security attorneys help our most vulnerable citizens qualify for social security disability benefits.

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. By working with an experienced Redondo Beach social security lawyer, you can increase your chances of success because you will be working with someone who understands the criteria that the review board is looking for. If you win your claim, you will be entitled to a monthly benefit payment from the federal government. In many cases, you can also qualify for medical care. For example, SSDI claimants can potentially qualify for Medicare benefits, while SSI claimants qualify for Medicaid benefits.

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. Why? Social Security attorneys only get paid if you get paid. This fee structure is called a “contingency” fee. Your social security attorney is limited in how much he or she can charge. That is because the federal government has capped attorney fees in these cases. Specifically, the attorney cannot charge more than 25% of your back pay, up to a total of $6,000. Even then, the government has to approve the final award of attorney fees. So, a claimant is always getting a fair deal. Contact your Redondo Beach Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.

Social Security: Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI

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.

Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) – Work with a Knowledgeable Redondo Beach Disability Insurance Attorney Today

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: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Redondo Beach Disability Attorney

SSI is paid out like welfare, meaning you cannot earn over a certain amount of money to qualify. In addition, you need to be disabled and unable to work. SSI pays out a smaller amount of money than SSDI, but unlike SSDI, you are not required to have paid into the Social Security system to qualify for payments. In addition, SSI recipients qualify for medical care through Medicaid. To contact an experienced Redondo Beach SSI lawyer, fill out the questionnaire on the left.

Application to Appeal: the process - Redondo Beach Disability Appeal Lawyer

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. 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.
