Dearborn, Michigan Social Security Lawyers

Has a disability kept you from working? You may be eligible for social security payments. Understanding the nuances of the social security system can be a bit overwhelming. Some people qualify upon completing an initial application while others take a longer appeal process. Learn more about the social security disability system today. Dearborn social security attorneys can walk you through the application and appeal process. Start now by filling out the form on the left.

The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

Roughly 65 – 75% of applicants are initially denied for social security benefits. By working with an experienced Dearborn social security lawyer, you can increase your chances of success because you will be working with someone who understands the criteria that the review board is looking for. Those who face real disabilities potentially face hunger and homelessness. Winning your claim can provide a necessary safety net to our most vulnerable citizens. Successful claimants receive monthly payments from the federal government to cover those critical expenses. Many claimants also qualify for medical services through Medicare and Medicaid.

How can I afford a Social Security lawyer when I can’t work?

If you think you can’t afford a social security attorney, think again. They’re not as expensive as you probably think. 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. Social Security regulations set a cap for attorney fees.  As of June 2009, the cap is $6,000. Also, attorneys can only receive their money from the past due benefits awarded to you, a max of 25%. So, the most a social security lawyer can charge is: the smaller amount of 25% of your past due benefits or $6,000. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Dearborn Social Security attorney will contact you.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. SSI

Two separate social security programs provide disability payments to injured people: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). To earn disability payments under either one, you must suffer from an injury that (1) prevents you from working for a year or more, or (2) will result in death. Short-term injuries are not covered by the social security system.

(SSDI) Social Security Disability Insurance – Talk to a Knowledgeable Dearborn Disability Income Attorney Now

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: You may qualify - Reach a qualified Dearborn Disability Attorney

If you have no or too little work history, are disabled, and make below a certain threshold of money, you may qualify for SSI. SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, is a welfare-based program. The benefits are paid out of general tax revenues and are not contingent on your work history. The monthly benefit provides a basic amount, which may be enhanced by your state. You may also qualify for food stamps and Medicaid. You can contact an experienced Dearborn SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.

The process: Application to appeal - Dearborn Disability Appeals Lawyer
