Novi Michigan Social Security Lawyers want to help

Does your disability prevent you from working? You may be entitled to benefits under the social security disability income system. The system is designed to provide benefits to citizens who cannot work due to disability. By working with an experienced Novi social security attorney, you stand a better chance of qualifying for social security benefits. Once you fill out the form on the left, an experienced Novi social security attorney will call you promptly. By speaking with the attorney, you are under no obligation whatsoever.

The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

More than half of the initial applicants are rejected for social security every year. 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 Novi social security lawyer. Arm yourself with a professional who understands the best tactics for winning your social security claim. For many, losing their social security claim has devastating consequences. Those who are disabled who do not have an alternative source of income potentially face homelessness. The SSI and SSDI systems provide monthly payments from the federal government for our most vulnerable citizens. These payments can cover the cost of living, and in some cases the SSI and SSDI systems also provide medical coverage.

Novi Social Security attorneys: how much do they cost?

If you think you can’t afford a social security attorney, think again. They’re not as expensive as you probably think. 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. 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. There is no reason to contact an experienced Novi Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

Education: SSDI versus SSI

The Social Security system was created in part, to provide disability payments to our most vulnerable citizens: those who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must keep you from working for at least a year or more. Under the system, there are two types of disability programs: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both are explained below.

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

If you have a work history of paying into social security, you may be eligible for SSDI payments. SSDI is a natural insurance program that pays those who are disabled and have a qualifying work history (the duration of your previous work depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Learn more by contacting an experienced Novi SSDI attorney.

(SSI) Supplemental Security Income - Contact an experienced Novi 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 Novi SSI lawyer.

Application to Appeal: the process - Novi Disability Appeal Lawyer

You can apply online, in person, or over the phone for social security. You will be prompted to fill out a series of questions that require you to substantiate your disability. You can have your case reviewed by an appeal panel if you are initially denied social security benefits.
