Why seek help applying for SSI or SSDI benefits?

The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. An experienced Redford 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. 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.

Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a social security lawyer?

If you think you can’t afford a social security attorney, think again. They’re not as expensive as you probably think. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. Thankfully, the government has placed restrictions on how much a social security lawyer can charge a claimant. Specifically, they cannot charge you more than 25% of the past due benefits that are awarded to you. Even then, that 25% figure cannot exceed $6,000 total. So, claimants are always protected by the social security system. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Redford Social Security attorney will contact you.

SSDI and SSI Eligibility

The federal government created Social Security for a number of reasons. One of those reasons was to provide benefits to Americans who cannot work due to an injury. The injury must last at least one year, and prevent you from working. There are two different programs that give rise to disability payments under the Social Security System: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both programs provide relief to injured Americans, but they are different from each other.

SSDI: Federal Workers Insurance for the Disabled - Contact a Knowledgeable Redford Disability Insurance Attorney Today

To receive payments under the SSDI plan, you must have worked a percentage of the previous years (depending on your age). Thus, only those with a work history can qualify. Beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicare coverage. Speak with an experienced Redford SSDI lawyer to learn more.

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

If you have no or too little work history, are disabled, and make below a certain threshold of money, you may qualify for SSI. SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, is a welfare-based program. The benefits are paid out of general tax revenues and are not contingent on your work history. The monthly benefit provides a basic amount, which may be enhanced by your state. You may also qualify for food stamps and Medicaid. You can contact an experienced Redford SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.
