The SSI and SSDI system: a real safety net

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. The application and appeal process can sometimes be difficult to navigate through. For example, you will need to understand the best method of presenting proof of your disability. An experienced Anchorage social security lawyer can really help with that process. If you win your claim, you will be entitled to a monthly benefit payment from the federal government. In many cases, you can also qualify for medical care.

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

Although attorneys can be expensive, a social security attorney is affordable, even for someone who does not have a job. Social security attorneys are paid according to a strict fee schedule. They can only be paid if they win your case for you. That makes sense because claimants usually have no expendable money. 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 Anchorage Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

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.
