Why seek help applying for SSI or SSDI benefits?

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. By working with an experienced Flower Mound social security lawyer, you leave nothing to chance. Flower Mound social security lawyers have the experience of working with the social security administration. They have reviewed and helped many other people in your situation, and they have experience presenting medical conditions to the social security administration.

The social security system provides monthly payments that make living in this expensive country manageable. In many cases, claimants also qualify for critical medical coverage through the social security system. SSI claimants can get Medicaid, while SSDI claimants may qualify for Medicare.

How much does it cost to hire a qualified Flower Mound 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. In most every case, social security lawyers work on a “contingency” fee. That means they only get paid if you win your social security benefits claim. Your social security attorney is limited in how much he or she can charge. That is because the federal government has capped attorney fees in these cases. Specifically, the attorney cannot charge more than 25% of your back pay, up to a total of $6,000. Even then, the government has to approve the final award of attorney fees. So, a claimant is always getting a fair deal.

Learning about the SSI and SSDI programs

The Social Security System can provide you with monthly payments if you qualify. To qualify for either the SSI (Supplemental Security Income) or SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) programs, you must meet their criteria. Generally, to qualify for either, you must suffer from an injury that prevents you from working for a year or more (or one that results in death). Both systems are explained below.

  1. What is the Standard for Disability in Flower Mound, Texas? - To receive disability benefits for Social Security Disability you must meet the Social Security Administration's definition of disability.
    1. The term disability is that you are unable to engage in “substantial gainful activity” [SGA] because of a medically physical or mental impairment which has lasted, or is expected to last, for at least 12 months, or is expected to result in your death.
  2. If you are working in or around Flower Mound, Texas is that a factor? - If you are working in Flower Mound and performing SGA, then you are considered able to work and not disabled. In 2012, the SGA limit is $1010 (after taxes) per month. If you earn more than $1010 per month, you are probably not eligible, unless there are special circumstances;
  3. Do You Have a Severe Impairment? - You must have a medical problem which significantly limits your physical or mental ability to perform basic work activities. The impairment must be expected to last for 12 months or end in death;
  4. Does Your Medical Condition Match One of SSA’s Listed Impairments? - SSA has a list of medical conditions ["Listing of Impairments."] that describes medical conditions so severe that SSA considers people who have the conditions disabled;
    1. If your condition does not meet or equal one of the conditions in the Listing of Impairments, then you must ask:
      1. Despite Your Medical Condition, Are You Able to Do Work You Did in the Past? - SSA determines what you are able to do despite your medical condition. This is called the Residual Functional Capacity (RFC). SSA compares your RFC with the physical and mental demands of your past jobs. If you are physically and mentally able to do a job that you have held within the last fifteen years, then SSA considers you "not disabled." However, if you are not able to perform any of your past jobs, then ask:
  5. Despite Your Medical Condition, Are You Able to Do Other Work? - If you cannot perform your past work, then SSA decides whether you are able to perform other types of work.

Can Children in Flower Mound Qualify for Disability Benefits? Yes, but What is the Criteria?

Financially needy children under age 18 who have serious medical conditions may be eligible for Children’s SSI. A child is disabled for SSI if the child is not working and earning more than the SGA level and has a medical condition or combination of conditions that cause "marked and severe functional limitations." Medical evidence documenting the child’s medical condition is essential.

SSDI - Contact an experienced Flower Mound Disability Insurance Attorney Now

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 Flower Mound SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

SSI – Work with an experienced Flower Mound 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 Flower Mound SSI lawyer for more details.
