Contact an experienced Upland social security disability attorney today by filling out the questionnaire on the left.

The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. Presenting proof of your disability is an important step toward qualifying. An experienced Upland social security lawyer can help you make your most compelling case to the review board. Your chance of success increases this way. The difference between winning your social security claim and losing your social security claim are often dramatic. For example, without an alternative source of income, and without the ability to work (due to disability), many people face homelessness and hunger. The relief provided by the monthly payments from SSI and SSDI claims provide a necessary security blanket. In some cases, claimants may be entitled to medical care through the Medicaid or Medicare systems.

How do I pay a qualified Upland Social Security lawyer? I don’t have any money!

Because the people who need a social security lawyer usually do not have a source of income, social security lawyers structure their fees to make their services affordable. 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. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Upland Social Security attorney will contact you.

SSDI and SSI Eligibility

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.

Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) – Work with a Knowledgeable Upland Disability Insurance Attorney Today

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.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Upland Disability Attorney

The SSI system provides monthly payments, of a minimum amount, to disabled people. The benefits are paid regardless of whether you previously paid into the Social Security System. Although payments are generally lower under SSI, the funds help those who critically need it. In addition, successful claimants may also qualify for medical care through Medicaid. Fill out the form to contact an experienced Upland SSI lawyer.

Application to Appeal: the process - Upland Disability Appeal Lawyer

Applicants can begin the process in multiple ways: online, over the phone, and in person. The government takes around four to six months to review your case. If you are denied, you can appeal your decision, which will take longer.
