Do you suffer from a disability that prevents you from making a living? Thankfully, for those who qualify, social security can provide much-needed relief.

You can contact an experienced Bismarck social security disability attorney by filling out the form on the left. You are under absolutely no obligation merely by filling out the form.

The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

Roughly 65 – 75% of applicants are initially denied for social security benefits. Qualifying for social security benefits requires proof of your disability. Experienced Bismarck social security lawyers understand how to present your evidence in the most favorable light. For many, losing their social security claim has devastating consequences. Those who are disabled who do not have an alternative source of income potentially face homelessness. The SSI and SSDI systems provide monthly payments from the federal government for our most vulnerable citizens. These payments can cover the cost of living, and in some cases the SSI and SSDI systems also provide medical coverage.

Bismarck Social Security attorneys: how much do they cost?

You do not have to have a pool of money to afford a social security lawyer. The usual fee structure of a social security lawyer is designed so that it is affordable for people who are not employed. The reason why: you do not pay a Social Security lawyer unless he or she wins your claim. That means they only get paid 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. There is no reason to contact an experienced Bismarck Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

The Social Security system: About

Understanding how the Social Security disability program works is important. There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits to those who cannot work for a year or more due to a disability: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). Both programs require that you suffer from a disability to qualify, but each program has other separate requirements for eligibility.

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

SSDI is a benefit program based on prior work history. For example, you must have worked a certain number of the past years (depending on your age) and paid into the social security system to receive disability payments. Some SSDI beneficiaries also qualify for Medicaid.

SSI: the final safety net - Contact an experienced Bismarck 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.
