SSI and SSDI: your safety net

Approximately 65% or more initial applicants are denied social security benefits. By working with an experienced Farmington Hills 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. The difference between winning your social security claim and losing your social security claim are often dramatic. For example, without an alternative source of income, and without the ability to work (due to disability), many people face homelessness and hunger. The relief provided by the monthly payments from SSI and SSDI claims provide a necessary security blanket. In some cases, claimants may be entitled to medical care through the Medicaid or Medicare systems.

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

You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. 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 Farmington Hills Social Security attorney will contact you.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. SSI

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: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Farmington Hills Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately

To qualify for SSDI monthly payments, you must establish a work history of paying into social security as well as a qualifying disability. So, not everyone qualifies for the SSDI program. Those who receive disability payments under SSDI may also qualify for Medicare coverage. Contact an experienced Farmington Hills SSDI lawyer to learn about your options.

SSI – Work with an experienced Farmington Hills Disability Attorney

Unlike SSDI, you do not have to demonstrate a work history to be eligible for SSI. To qualify for SSI, you must suffer from a disability that prevents you from working for a year or more, and make less than a minimum threshold of money. SSI checks are paid monthly. In addition, you may be eligible for more money from your state, Medicaid, and food stamps. Call your Farmington Hills SSI lawyer for more details.
