What does SSI and SSDI mean for you?

More than half of the initial applicants are rejected for social security every year. However, you can dramatically increase your odds of winning your benefits claim by working with an experienced Santa Monica social security lawyer. This is because most SS attorneys have learned what criteria the review board is looking for. For many applicants, they face the possibility of homelessness if their SSI or SSDI application is denied. The social security system provides monthly payments that make living in this expensive country manageable. In many cases, claimants also qualify for critical medical coverage through the social security system. SSI claimants can get Medicaid, while SSDI claimants may qualify for Medicare.

What does the typical Santa Monica Social Security lawyer cost to hire?

Social security lawyers are very affordable. 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. 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. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Santa Monica Social Security attorney will contact you.

Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?

The Social Security system was created in part, to provide disability payments to our most vulnerable citizens: those who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must keep you from working for at least a year or more. Under the system, there are two types of disability programs: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both are explained below.

SSDI - Contact an experienced Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica Disability Attorney

If you have no or too little work history, are disabled, and make below a certain threshold of money, you may qualify for SSI. SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, is a welfare-based program. The benefits are paid out of general tax revenues and are not contingent on your work history. The monthly benefit provides a basic amount, which may be enhanced by your state. You may also qualify for food stamps and Medicaid. You can contact an experienced Santa Monica SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.

How does the application and appeal process work? - Santa Monica Disability Appeals attorney

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. You can have your case reviewed by an appeal panel if you are initially denied social security benefits.
