Reno Social Security attorneys: how much do they cost?

You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. 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. 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. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Reno Social Security lawyer.

What is the difference between SSDI and SSI?

The disability must preclude you from working for a year or more. Disability payments are made monthly to those who qualify. Both SSDI and SSI programs are related, but different.
