The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. 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 Akron social security lawyer. Arm yourself with a professional who understands the best tactics for winning your social security claim. 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. SSDI recipients receive monthly payments based on the amount they paid into the system, among other factors. Also, SSDI recipients sometimes qualify for Medicare.

Akron Social Security attorneys: how much do they cost?

Social Security lawyers are not as expensive as you may think. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. The social security administration carefully monitors how much a social security attorney charges. The attorneys are statutorily limited to charging a max of 25% of back pay awarded to you (up to a max of $6,000). That means that in most cases you can only be required to pay money that was already owed to you before you received your social security benefits, and even that amount is limited. Contact your Akron 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 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.

Do you qualify for SSDI? – Work with a Knowledgeable Akron Disability Insurance Attorney Soon

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: You may qualify - Reach a qualified Akron 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 Akron SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.
