Does your disability prevent you from supporting yourself? Social security disability income, or “SSDI” for short, and “SSI”, supplemental security income, was created forthose who cannot work due to suffering from a disability. The federal SSDI and SSI system can be difficult to navigate. Whether you are a first time applicant or whether you have been previously rejected, an experienced Hoover social security attorney can help you.

The consequences of your SSI and SSDI application and appeal

The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. However, you can dramatically increase your odds of winning your benefits claim by working with an experienced Hoover social security lawyer. This is because most SS attorneys have learned what criteria the review board is looking for. Successful claimants receive critical monthly payments from the federal government. SSI recipients can receive a monthly payment, food stamps, and potentially Medicaid to cover health care costs. SSDI recipients receive monthly payments based on the amount they paid into the system, among other factors. Also, SSDI recipients sometimes qualify for Medicare.

Qualified Hoover Social Security lawyers: are they expensive?

Just about anyone can afford a social security lawyer. Unlike many other types of attorneys, social security lawyers do not require you to pay big out of pocket expenses. When you hire a social security attorney, you only pay them attorney fees if you win your claim. So, you only pay if you get paid. The social security system oversees the amount a social security attorney can charge. For example, they are capped at making 25% of the back pay awarded to you. Even then, they can only make a maximum of $6,000 on your case. Contact your Hoover Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.

Learning about the SSI and SSDI programs

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.

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

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 Hoover SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

(SSI) Supplemental Security Income - Contact an experienced Hoover 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 Hoover SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.

How does the application and appeal process work? - Hoover Disability Appeals attorney

You can begin the application process online, in person, or by phone. The process can take a while because the number of applications is generally very high. Usually, you have to wait anywhere between three and six months, maybe longer. If you have been denied, you can appeal your case. At appeal, you will have to prove that your condition qualifies as a disability. If you do not feel comfortable appearing on your own behalf, an attorney may present your case for you.
