The consequences of your SSI and SSDI application and appeal

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. Do not make the mistake of gambling with your odds of winning. An experienced Mentor social security lawyer knows how to present proof of your disability in the most advantageous way. You can really have a leg up by working with a seasoned professional. The consequences of losing your social security claim can have serious consequences. Those who qualify get monthly payments to live off. In many cases, you can also get Medicare or Medicaid. These payments and other potential benefits often mean the difference between survival and homelessness for those suffering from disabilities.

How do people afford to pay qualified Mentor Social Security lawyers?

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. The reason why: you do not pay a Social Security lawyer unless he or she wins your claim. That means they only get paid if you get paid. First off, a social security attorney is legally not allowed to charge more than 25% of the back pay/past due benefits awarded to you, up to a maximum of $6,000. Second, you are insured not to pay more than that because the government must approve of the attorney’s fee before you are required to pay the attorney for his services. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Mentor Social Security attorney will contact you.

SSDI and SSI, which one is right for you?

There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits in the social security system. They are SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance). Generally, to qualify for disability payments, you must have an injury that prevents you from working for one year or more or an injury that will result in death. Both programs pay on a monthly basis.

Do you qualify for SSDI? – Work with a Knowledgeable Mentor Disability Insurance Attorney Soon

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 Mentor SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Mentor Disability Attorney

SSI, unlike SSDI, is a welfare-based program that pays those with disabilities, regardless of their work history. To qualify, claimants must make less than a minimum threshold of income (a very small amount). Those who qualify may also be eligible for food stamps, and Medicaid. Learn more now and contact an experienced Mentor SSI attorney.

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

First, you can apply online, call into an office, or visit your local SS office. The application process can take anywhere between four to six months. In the event that the government denies your social security application, you can appeal your case. At the appeal, you can represent yourself or your attorney can represent you.
