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

Statistically, between 65% and 70% of initial applications are denied nationally. Qualifying for social security benefits requires proof of your disability. Experienced Downey social security lawyers understand how to present your evidence in the most favorable light. Living with a disability can make it virtually impossible to function in our expensive society. If you can qualify for social security benefits, you will be entitled to monthly payments from the federal government. In some cases, you may also qualify for medical coverage through Medicaid or Medicare, depending on your circumstances. This is an absolutely essential security blanket for those who cannot work due to disability. Therefore, the consequences of not qualifying can be severe.

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

You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. Social security attorneys are paid according to a strict fee schedule. They can only be paid if they win your case for you. That makes sense because claimants usually have not expendable money. 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. Contacting you Downey Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?

There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits in the social security system. They are SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance). Generally, to qualify for disability payments, you must have an injury that prevents you from working for one year or more or an injury that will result in death. Both programs pay on a monthly basis.

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

SSDI pays disability payments to those who have a qualifying work history, who are disabled. For that reason, not everyone is eligible for SSDI. To qualify, you will have to show, in addition to proving your disability, that you have worked a certain percentage of your previous years (depending on your age). Medicare medical coverage is also available to some SSDI recipients. Contact your Downey SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

SSI: the final safety net - Contact an experienced Downey 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).
