The difference between winning your SSI or SSDI claim and losing it

The statistics show that the majority of initial applications are denied: between 65% and 70%. Often success hinges on whether you have made out the best case for your disability to the review board. Gadsden social security lawyers have experienced understanding how to present your best case. By working with an attorney, you will not have to second-guess whether you have done the best job highlighting what the social security administration is looking for. For many, losing their social security claim has devastating consequences. Those who are disabled who do not have an alternative source of income potentially face homelessness. The SSI and SSDI systems provide monthly payments from the federal government for our most vulnerable citizens. These payments can cover the cost of living, and in some cases the SSI and SSDI systems also provide medical coverage.

Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a 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. The reason why: you do not pay a Social Security lawyer unless he or she wins your claim. That means they only get paid if you get paid. 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. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Gadsden Social Security attorney will contact you.

What is the difference between SSDI and SSI?

The federal government created Social Security for a number of reasons. One of those reasons was to provide benefits to Americans who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must last at least one year, and prevent you from working. There are two different programs that give rise to disability payments under the Social Security System: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both programs provide relief to injured Americans, but they are different from each other.
