The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system
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 Oak Lawn 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. Successful claimants receive critical monthly payments from the federal government. SSI recipients can receive a monthly payment, food stamps, and potentially Medicaid to cover health care costs. SSDI recipients receive monthly payments based on the amount they paid into the system, among other factors. Also, SSDI recipients sometimes qualify for Medicare.
Qualified Oak Lawn Social Security lawyers: are they expensive?
Social security lawyers are very affordable. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. In fact, the federal government actually caps the amount that a social security attorney can charge. First, they are generally limited to a maximum of 25% of the back pay owed to you (as opposed to future payments). That means that if you are owed $10,000 in payments from the months prior to your decision, the attorney can only make $2,500. Second, a social security lawyer cannot make more than $6,000 from your case, total. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Oak Lawn Social Security attorney will contact you.
Learning about SSDI and SSI: Your federal programs
Disability benefits under Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are given to applicants who cannot work due to a disability. Generally, the disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. Benefits under SSI and SSDI are different.
Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) – Work with a Knowledgeable Oak Lawn Disability Insurance Attorney Today
SSDI is a federal insurance program that pays disability benefits to people who have paid into the social security system. To qualify, you must be disabled and have a work history of paying social security taxes. Thus, not everyone can qualify. Those who do qualify may also be eligible for Medicare coverage, depending on the duration of your disability. Contact an SSDI attorney to learn if you may qualify.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Oak Lawn 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.
