Aren’t lawyers expensive to hire? How can I hire a qualified Richardson social security lawyer?

Just about anyone can afford a social security lawyer. Unlike many other types of attorneys, social security lawyers do not require you to pay big out of pocket expenses. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. Social Security regulations set a cap for attorney fees.  As of June 2009, the cap is $6,000. Also, attorneys can only receive their money from the past due benefits awarded to you, a max of 25%. So, the most a social security lawyer can charge is: the smaller amount of 25% of your past due benefits or $6,000. Contacting you Richardson Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. SSI

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.
