Do you suffer from a disability that prevents you from making a living? The social security disability system was designed to help those who are unable to work because of a disability. Qualifying is not always easy. That is why it is important to work with an experienced Jackson social security attorney when you apply or appeal a case. Jackson social security attorneys help our most vulnerable citizens qualify for social security disability benefits.
The difference between winning your SSI or SSDI claim and losing it
The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. An experienced Jackson social security lawyer can walk you through the application process. If you have been denied, he or she can walk you through the appeal process. Your lawyer should have ample experienced understanding what the social security administration is looking for when they review your application. In addition, your attorney can best highlight your condition so that the true nature of your disability is best understood. 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 do not have to have a pool of money to afford a social security lawyer. The usual fee structure of a social security lawyer is designed so that it is affordable for people who are not employed. 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. There is no reason to contact an experienced Jackson Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.
The Social Security system: About
Both Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) have strict requirements. Both systems provide disability payments to those who cannot work for a year or more due to an injury. While related, these programs are quite different.
SSDI: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Jackson Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately
SSDI provides disability payments to Americans who can demonstrate a work history of paying taxes into the social security system. To qualify, you must prove (1) the existence of a disability that prevents you from working for at least one year, and (2) that you worked and paid social security taxes over the course of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Contact an experienced Jackson SSDI lawyer now to learn more.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Jackson 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 Jackson SSI lawyer for more details.
