The SSI and SSDI system: a real safety net

It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. If you have a disability, you will want to make sure you do the best job presenting the nature of your injury to the review board. Most often, the best way to do this is to work with an experienced Livonia social security lawyer. Arm yourself with a professional who understands the best tactics for winning your social security claim. 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.

Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a social security lawyer?

Most people can actually afford a social security lawyer, even those without jobs. Why? Social Security attorneys only get paid if you get paid. This fee structure is called a “contingency” fee. The social security administration carefully monitors how much a social security attorney charges. The attorneys are statutorily limited to charging a max of 25% of back pay awarded to you (up to a max of $6,000). That means that in most cases you can only be required to pay money that was already owed to you before you received your social security benefits, and even that amount is limited. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Livonia Social Security attorney will contact you.

SSDI and SSI, which one is right for you?

Two separate social security programs provide disability payments to injured people: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). To earn disability payments under either one, you must suffer from an injury that (1) prevents you from working for a year or more, or (2) will result in death. Short-term injuries are not covered by the social security system.

SSDI: Federal Workers Insurance for the Disabled - Contact a Knowledgeable Livonia Disability Insurance Attorney Today

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 Livonia SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Livonia 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 Livonia SSI lawyer for more details.

The process: Application to appeal - Livonia Disability Appeals Lawyer

To apply for social security, you can start online, in person, or by calling the social security administration directly. The government can take upward of six months to review your case. If denied, you can appeal the decision. You may have an attorney represent you at the appeal.
