Why seek help applying for SSI or SSDI benefits?

Statistically, between 65% and 70% of initial applications are denied nationally. Often success hinges on whether you have made out the best case for your disability to the review board. Lancaster 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 applicants, they face the possibility of homelessness if their SSI or SSDI application is denied. 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 can I afford a Social Security lawyer when I can’t work?

Although attorneys can be expensive, a social security attorney is affordable, even for someone who does not have a job. 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. 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. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Lancaster Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.

Learning about SSDI and SSI: Your federal programs

SSI (Social Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security disability Insurance) are two separate programs that pay claimants who are disabled. The disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. While both programs are federal disability programs, they are quite different from each other.

SSDI - Contact an experienced Lancaster 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 Lancaster SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

SSI: the final safety net - Contact an experienced Lancaster 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).
