The importance of winning your SSI or SSDI claim

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. However, you can dramatically increase your odds of winning your benefits claim by working with an experienced Lakewood social security lawyer. This is because most SS attorneys have learned what criteria the review board is looking for. Winning your claim can mean the difference between homelessness and no medical care, and having a safety net of a monthly benefit payment and life-saving medical care. Those who qualify could potentially receive the following in addition to monthly payments: Medicare, Medicaid, and Food Stamps, depending on your circumstances.

Aren’t lawyers expensive to hire? How can I hire a qualified Lakewood social security lawyer?

Contrary to what people think about lawyers, Social Security lawyers tend to be very affordable. 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. 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. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Lakewood Social Security attorney will contact you.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. SSI

Disability benefits under Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are given to applicants who cannot work due to a disability. Generally, the disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. Benefits under SSI and SSDI are different.

Claimants can qualify for SSDI if they are disabled and have previously paid into the social security system through their taxes. So, you must have worked and paid social security taxes to qualify. The government also requires you to have worked a percentage of the previous years, contingent on your age. Some SSDI claimants also qualify for Medicare if they are disabled under the SSDI program for 2 years. Learn more by contacting an experienced SSDI attorney.

SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Lakewood Disability Attorney

The SSI system is designed to provide a minimum threshold of income to those who are disabled, blind, or 65 and older, who do not make much money. Those who qualify receive a monthly check (usually much less than SSDI amounts). You may also receive more money from your state. Unlike SSDI, claims are paid from general tax revenues. Thus, you do not need to have paid into the social security system to qualify for SSI payments. Those who qualify for SSI also may receive Medicaid coverage from the government (Medical Care).
