SSI and SSDI: your safety net

Approximately 65% or more initial applicants are denied social security benefits. An experienced Minot social security lawyer can walk you through the application process. If you have been denied, he or she can walk you through the appeal process. Your lawyer should have ample experienced understanding what the social security administration is looking for when they review your application. In addition, your attorney can best highlight your condition so that the true nature of your disability is best understood. 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?

You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. Almost always, Social Security lawyers work on a “contingency” basis: meaning that they only get paid if you win your claim. That means, in most cases, you have nothing to lose by working with a social security attorney. 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 Minot Social Security attorney will contact you.

Eligibility for either SSDI or SSI

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.

Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) – Work with a Knowledgeable Minot Disability Insurance Attorney Today

To qualify for SSDI monthly payments, you must establish a work history of paying into social security as well as a qualifying disability. So, not everyone qualifies for the SSDI program. Those who receive disability payments under SSDI may also qualify for Medicare coverage. Contact an experienced Minot SSDI lawyer to learn about your options.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Minot 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). Fill out the form to contact an experienced Minot SSI lawyer.
