The SSI and SSDI system: a real safety net

An experienced Santa Ana 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 monthly payments from the federal government to cover those critical expenses. Many claimants also qualify for medical services through Medicare and Medicaid.

How do people afford to pay qualified Santa Ana Social Security lawyers?

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. Why? Social Security attorneys only get paid if you get paid. This fee structure is called a “contingency” fee. 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. Contacting you Santa Ana Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

Education: SSDI versus SSI

Disability benefits under Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are given to applicants who cannot work due to a disability. Generally, the disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. Benefits under SSI and SSDI are different.

To receive payments under the SSDI plan, you must have worked a percentage of the previous years (depending on your age). Thus, only those with a work history can qualify. Beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicare coverage. Speak with an experienced Santa Ana SSDI lawyer to learn more.

The federal SSI program – work with a qualified Santa Ana 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 Santa Ana SSI lawyer.
