The importance of winning your SSI or SSDI claim

Approximately 65% or more initial applicants are denied social security benefits. 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 Visalia social security lawyer. Arm yourself with a professional who understands the best tactics for winning your social security claim. Those who face real disabilities potentially face hunger and homelessness. Winning your claim can provide a necessary safety net to our most vulnerable citizens. Successful claimants receive monthly payments from the federal government to cover those critical expenses. Many claimants also qualify for medical services through Medicare and Medicaid.

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

If you think you can’t afford a social security attorney, think again. They’re not as expensive as you probably think. Why? Social Security attorneys only get paid if you get paid. This fee structure is called a “contingency” fee. Social Security regulations set a cap for attorney fees.  As of June 2009, the cap is $6,000. Also, attorneys can only receive their money from the past due benefits awarded to you, a max of 25%. So, the most a social security lawyer can charge is: the smaller amount of 25% of your past due benefits or $6,000. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Visalia Social Security attorney will contact you.

Learning about the SSI and SSDI programs

Disability payments under SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) are contingent upon you proving the existence of a disability. The disability must preclude you from working for a year or more. Disability payments are made monthly to those who qualify. Both SSDI and SSI programs are related, but different.

If you have a work history of paying into social security, you may be eligible for SSDI payments. SSDI is a natural insurance program that pays those who are disabled and have a qualifying work history (the duration of your previous work depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Learn more by contacting an experienced Visalia SSDI attorney.

SSI: You may qualify - Reach a qualified Visalia 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 Visalia SSI lawyer.
