Your SSI or SSDI application: it makes a big difference

Roughly 65 – 75% of applicants are initially denied for social security benefits. Presenting proof of your disability is an important step toward qualifying. An experienced Canton social security lawyer can help you make your most compelling case to the review board. Your chance of success increases this way. Winning your claim can mean the difference between homelessness and no medical care, and having a safety net of a monthly benefit payment and life-saving medical care. Those who qualify could potentially receive the following in addition to monthly payments: Medicare, Medicaid, and Food Stamps, depending on your circumstances.

How do I pay a qualified Canton Social Security lawyer? I don’t have any money!

Although attorneys can be expensive, a social security attorney is affordable, even for someone who does not have a job. 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. 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 Canton Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?

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 Canton Disability Insurance Attorney Today

SSDI is a program for Americans who have a work history. To qualify, you must be disabled, and have worked and paid into the social security system for a fraction of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. If you think you may qualify for SSDI, contact an experienced Canton SSDI attorney soon to discuss your options.

SSI is truly a last line of defense for those who are disabled and have no money. SSI is welfare-based, which means that it is paid out regardless of your work history (unlike SSDI). SSI recipients receive monthly checks, and may also qualify for aid from the state, food stamps, and Medicaid. Don’t wait. Contact an experienced Canton SSI lawyer today.
