You may be entitled to benefits: the SSI and SSDI program at a glance

It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. An experienced Washington social security lawyer can increase your chance of success. 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. 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.

Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a social security lawyer?

You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. Why are they affordable? Answer: they work on a “contingency” basis. 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 Washington Social Security attorney will contact you.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. SSI

The federal government created Social Security for a number of reasons. One of those reasons was to provide benefits to Americans who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must last at least one year, and prevent you from working. There are two different programs that give rise to disability payments under the Social Security System: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both programs provide relief to injured Americans, but they are different from each other.

To receive payments under the SSDI plan, you must have worked a percentage of the previous years (depending on your age). Thus, only those with a work history can qualify. Beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicare coverage. Speak with an experienced Washington SSDI lawyer to learn more.

SSI – Work with an experienced Washington Disability Attorney

SSI is paid out like welfare, meaning you cannot earn over a certain amount of money to qualify. In addition, you need to be disabled and unable to work. SSI pays out a smaller amount of money than SSDI, but unlike SSDI, you are not required to have paid into the Social Security system to qualify for payments. In addition, SSI recipients qualify for medical care through Medicaid. To contact an experienced Washington SSI lawyer, fill out the questionnaire on the left.

How does the application and appeal process work? - Washington Disability Appeals attorney
