The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. By working with an experienced Thornton social security lawyer, you leave nothing to chance. Thornton social security lawyers have the experience of working with the social security administration. They have reviewed and helped many other people in your situation, and they have experience presenting medical conditions to the social security administration. Why work alone when you can have the help of an experienced professional. 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.

What does the typical Thornton Social Security lawyer cost to hire?

Just about anyone can afford a social security lawyer. Unlike many other types of attorneys, social security lawyers do not require you to pay big out of pocket expenses. Almost always, Social Security lawyers work on a “contingency” basis: meaning that they only get paid if you win your claim. That means, in most cases, you have nothing to lose by working with a social security attorney. Statutorily, social security attorneys can only make the following: the smaller amount of (1) 25% of back pay awarded to you, or (2) $6,000 total. The social security administration has to approve the amount of the attorney fees at the time you are awarded your benefits. Contacting you Thornton Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. SSI

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: Federal Workers Insurance for the Disabled - Contact a Knowledgeable Thornton Disability Insurance Attorney Today

SSDI provides disability payments to Americans who can demonstrate a work history of paying taxes into the social security system. To qualify, you must prove (1) the existence of a disability that prevents you from working for at least one year, and (2) that you worked and paid social security taxes over the course of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Contact an experienced Thornton SSDI lawyer now to learn more.

SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Thornton Disability Attorney

Unlike SSDI, you do not have to demonstrate a work history to be eligible for SSI. To qualify for SSI, you must suffer from a disability that prevents you from working for a year or more, and make less than a minimum threshold of money. SSI checks are paid monthly. In addition, you may be eligible for more money from your state, Medicaid, and food stamps. Call your Thornton SSI lawyer for more details.

Application to Appeal: the process - Thornton Disability Appeal Lawyer

You can apply online, in person, or over the phone for social security. You will be prompted to fill out a series of questions that require you to substantiate your disability. If you are denied, you can appeal your decision, which will take longer.
