What does the typical Omaha Social Security lawyer cost to hire?

If you think you can’t afford a social security attorney, think again. They’re not as expensive as you probably think. In most every case, social security lawyers work on a “contingency” fee. That means they only get paid if you win your social security benefits claim. The government limits how much a social security attorney can charge you. They are limited to charging the lesser of: 25% of the back pay awarded to you, or a maximum of $6,000. So, an attorney cannot make more than $6,000 on your case, nor can he or she make more than 25% of the back pay owed to you. Thus, if you are awarded $20,000 in back pay, generally the max you can be charged is $6,000.

How the Social Security system works: SSDI vs. 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.

SSDI - Contact an experienced Omaha Disability Insurance Attorney Now

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 Omaha SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Omaha Disability Attorney

Supplemental Security Income, or SSI for short, is available for people who suffer from a disability regardless of work history. SSI is paid from general revenues, unlike the SSDI system. SSI beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicaid and Food Stamps. They may also be eligible for additional income from the state. Contact your Omaha SSI lawyer to learn more.
