Your attorney can emphasize the facts that evidence your disability in a manner that is most appropriate. Your attorney will likely be able to draw from a wealth of experienced working with the review board inspecting your application and hearing your appeal. Living with a disability can make it virtually impossible to function in our expensive society. If you can qualify for social security benefits, you will be entitled to monthly payments from the federal government. In some cases, you may also qualify for medical coverage through Medicaid or Medicare, depending on your circumstances. This is an absolutely essential security blanket for those who cannot work due to disability. Therefore, the consequences of not qualifying can be severe.

How do people afford to pay qualified Biloxi Social Security lawyers?

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. In most every case, social security lawyers work on a “contingency” fee. That means they only get paid if you win your social security benefits claim. 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. Contact your Biloxi Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.

SSDI and SSI, which one is right for you?

The Social Security system was created in part, to provide disability payments to our most vulnerable citizens: those who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must keep you from working for at least a year or more. Under the system, there are two types of disability programs: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both are explained below.

Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) – Work with a Knowledgeable Biloxi 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.

SSI: the final safety net - Contact an experienced Biloxi Disability Attorney

SSI, unlike SSDI, is a welfare-based program that pays those with disabilities, regardless of their work history. To qualify, claimants must make less than a minimum threshold of income (a very small amount). Those who qualify may also be eligible for food stamps, and Medicaid. Learn more now and contact an experienced Biloxi SSI attorney.
