The importance of winning your SSI or SSDI claim

Roughly 65 – 75% of applicants are initially denied for social security benefits. Often success hinges on whether you have made out the best case for your disability to the review board. Cheektowaga social security lawyers have experienced understanding how to present your best case. By working with an attorney, you will not have to second-guess whether you have done the best job highlighting what the social security administration is looking for. The consequences of losing your social security claim can have serious consequences. Those who qualify get monthly payments to live off. In many cases, you can also get Medicare or Medicaid. These payments and other potential benefits often mean the difference between survival and homelessness for those suffering from disabilities.

How much does a qualified Cheektowaga Social Security lawyer cost?

Social security lawyers are very affordable. 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. There is no reason to contact an experienced Cheektowaga Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

What is the difference between SSDI and SSI?

Disability benefits under Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are given to applicants who cannot work due to a disability. Generally, the disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. Benefits under SSI and SSDI are different.

SSI – Work with an experienced Cheektowaga Disability Attorney

The SSI system is designed to provide a minimum threshold of income to those who are disabled, blind, or 65 and older, who do not make much money. Those who qualify receive a monthly check (usually much less than SSDI amounts). You may also receive more money from your state. Unlike SSDI, claims are paid from general tax revenues. Thus, you do not need to have paid into the social security system to qualify for SSI payments. Those who qualify for SSI also may receive Medicaid coverage from the government (Medical Care).
