The difference between winning your SSI or SSDI claim and losing it

It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. An experienced Tallahassee social security lawyer can increase your odds of success. Your attorney should understand how to make your best case. Your attorney can also represent you on appeal. An experienced Tallahassee social security lawyer will look over your file, and help you make any additions and corrections necessary to best highlight the nature of your disability. If you win your claim, you will be entitled to a monthly benefit payment from the federal government. In many cases, you can also qualify for medical care. For example, SSDI claimants can potentially qualify for Medicare benefits, while SSI claimants qualify for Medicaid benefits.

Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a social security lawyer?

You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. 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. There is no reason to contact an experienced Tallahassee Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

Education: SSDI versus 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: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Tallahassee Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately

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 – Work with an experienced Tallahassee 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 Tallahassee SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.

Application to Appeal: the process - Tallahassee Disability Appeal Lawyer

You can start your application online. You can also apply in person, or start the process over the phone. The initial review can take four to six months. You can have your case reviewed by an appeal panel if you are initially denied social security benefits.
