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

Roughly 65 – 75% of applicants are initially denied for social security benefits. However, you can dramatically increase your odds of winning your benefits claim by working with an experienced Elyria social security lawyer. This is because most SS attorneys have learned what criteria the review board is looking for. If you win your claim, you will be entitled to a monthly benefit payment from the federal government. In many cases, you can also qualify for medical care. For example, SSDI claimants can potentially qualify for Medicare benefits, while SSI claimants qualify for Medicaid benefits.

What does the typical Elyria Social Security lawyer cost to hire?

Most people can actually afford a social security lawyer, even those without jobs. 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. In fact, the federal government actually caps the amount that a social security attorney can charge. First, they are generally limited to a maximum of 25% of the back pay owed to you (as opposed to future payments). That means that if you are owed $10,000 in payments from the months prior to your decision, the attorney can only make $2,500. Second, a social security lawyer cannot make more than $6,000 from your case, total. Contacting you Elyria Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. 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: You may qualify - Reach a qualified Elyria 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 Elyria SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.
