Why seek help applying for SSI or SSDI benefits?

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. The application and appeal process can sometimes be difficult to navigate through. For example, you will need to understand the best method of presenting proof of your disability. An experienced Milwaukee social security lawyer can really help with that process. The difference between winning your social security claim and losing your social security claim are often dramatic. For example, without an alternative source of income, and without the ability to work (due to disability), many people face homelessness and hunger..The relief provided by the monthly payments from SSI and SSDI claims provide a necessary security blanket. In some cases, claimants may be entitled to medical care through the Medicaid or Medicare systems.

How can I afford a Social Security lawyer when I can’t work?

Social security lawyers are very affordable. Social security attorneys are paid according to a strict fee schedule. They can only be paid if they win your case for you. That makes sense because claimants usually have not expendable money. 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. Contacting you Milwaukee Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. SSI

Understanding how the Social Security disability program works is important. There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits to those who cannot work for a year or more due to a disability: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). Both programs require that you suffer from a disability to qualify, but each program has other separate requirements for eligibility.

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.
