Sterling Heights Michigan Social Security Lawyers want to help

Has the quality of your life suffered because of a disability? Are you now unable to work because of your disability? Thankfully, for those who qualify, social security can provide much-needed relief. If you qualify, you may be entitled to monthly checks due to your disability. Some may qualify for other assistance, such as: medical care coverage, food stamps, and other assistance from the state government. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, you can contact an experienced Sterling Heights social security attorney. It is time to get the help you need.

SSI and SSDI: your safety net

The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. If you have a disability, you will want to make sure you do the best job presenting the nature of your injury to the review board. Most often, the best way to do this is to work with an experienced Sterling Heights social security lawyer. Arm yourself with a professional who understands the best tactics for winning your social security claim. For many, losing their social security claim has devastating consequences. Those who are disabled who do not have an alternative source of income potentially face homelessness. The SSI and SSDI systems provide monthly payments from the federal government for our most vulnerable citizens. These payments can cover the cost of living, and in some cases the SSI and SSDI systems also provide medical coverage.

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

You do not have to have a pool of money to afford a social security lawyer. The usual fee structure of a social security lawyer is designed so that it is affordable for people who are not employed. 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. First off, a social security attorney is legally not allowed to charge more than 25% of the back pay/past due benefits awarded to you, up to a maximum of $6,000. Second, you are insured not to pay more than that because the government must approve of the attorney’s fee before you are required to pay the attorney for his services. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Sterling Heights Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.

Social Security: Qualifying for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) or Social Security Income (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.

SSDI - Contact an experienced Sterling Heights Disability Insurance Attorney Now

SSDI pays disability payments to those who have a qualifying work history, who are disabled. For that reason, not everyone is eligible for SSDI. To qualify, you will have to show, in addition to proving your disability, that you have worked a certain percentage of your previous years (depending on your age). Medicare medical coverage is also available to some SSDI recipients. Contact your Sterling Heights SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

The federal SSI program – work with a qualified Sterling Heights 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. Learn more now and contact an experienced Sterling Heights SSI attorney.
