Your attorney should understand how to make your best case. Your attorney can also represent you on appeal. An experienced West Covina 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. Successful claimants receive critical monthly payments from the federal government. SSI recipients can receive a monthly payment, food stamps, and potentially Medicaid to cover health care costs.

How can I afford a Social Security lawyer when I can’t work?

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. When you hire a social security attorney, you only pay them attorney fees if you win yourclaim. So, you only pay if you get paid. 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. Contact your West Covina Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.

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

The federal government created Social Security for a number of reasons. One of those reasons was to provide benefits to Americans who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must last at least one year, and prevent you from working. There are two different programs that give rise to disability payments under the Social Security System: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both programs provide relief to injured Americans, but they are different from each other.

SSDI: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable West Covina Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately

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 West Covina SSDI attorney.

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

Supplemental Security Income, or SSI for short, is available for people who suffer from a disability regardless of work history. SSI is paid from general revenues, unlike the SSDI system. SSI beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicaid and Food Stamps. They may also be eligible for additional income from the state. Contact your West Covina SSI lawyer to learn more.

The Process, Appeals and Applications - West Covina Disability Appeals Lawyer

You can begin the application process online, in person, or by phone. The process can take a while because the number of applications is generally very high. Usually, you have to wait anywhere between three and six months, maybe longer. If you have been denied, you can appeal your case. At appeal, you will have to prove that your condition qualifies as a disability. If you do not feel comfortable appearing on your own behalf, an attorney may present your case for you.
