An experienced El Monte social security lawyer knows how to present proof of your disability in the most advantageous way. You can really have a leg up by working with a seasoned professional.

What does the typical El Monte Social Security lawyer cost to hire?

Although attorneys can be expensive, a social security attorney is affordable, even for someone who does not have a job. Almost always, Social Security lawyers work on a “contingency” basis: meaning that they only get paid if you win your claim. That means, in most cases, you have nothing to lose by working with a social security attorney. 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. Don’t wait to contact an experienced El Monte Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.

What is the Social Security Disability system? Education

Disability payments under SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) are contingent upon you proving the existence of a disability. The disability must preclude you from working for a year or more. Disability payments are made monthly to those who qualify. Both SSDI and SSI programs are related, but different.

SSDI - Contact an experienced El Monte Disability Insurance Attorney Now

SSDI provides disability payments to Americans who can demonstrate a work history of paying taxes into the social security system. To qualify, you must prove (1) the existence of a disability that prevents you from working for at least one year, and (2) that you worked and paid social security taxes over the course of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Contact an experienced El Monte SSDI lawyer now to learn more.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced El Monte 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 El Monte SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.
