Why seek help applying for SSI or SSDI benefits?
The statistics show that the majority of initial applications are denied: between 65% and 70%. Presenting proof of your disability is an important step toward qualifying. An experienced State College 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 critical monthly payments from the federal government. SSI recipients can receive a monthly payment, food stamps, and potentially Medicaid to cover health care costs. SSDI recipients receive monthly payments based on the amount they paid into the system, among other factors. Also, SSDI recipients sometimes qualify for Medicare.
What does the typical State College Social Security lawyer cost to hire?
You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. Social security attorneys are paid according to a strict fee schedule. They can only be paid if they win your case for you. That makes sense because claimants usually have not expendable money. 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. Contact your State College Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.
The Social Security system: About
SSI (Social Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security disability Insurance) are two separate programs that pay claimants who are disabled. The disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. While both programs are federal disability programs, they are quite different from each other.
(SSDI) Social Security Disability Insurance – Talk to a Knowledgeable State College Disability Income 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 State College Disability Attorney
SSI, unlike SSDI, is a welfare-based program that pays those with disabilities, regardless of their work history. To qualify, claimants must make less than a minimum threshold of income (a very small amount). Those who qualify may also be eligible for food stamps, and Medicaid.
