The importance of winning your SSI or SSDI claim

More than half of the initial applicants are rejected for social security every year. Qualifying for social security benefits requires proof of your disability. Experienced Saginaw social security lawyers understand how to present your evidence in the most favorable light. 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.

Aren’t lawyers expensive to hire? How can I hire a qualified Saginaw social security lawyer?

Social Security lawyers are not as expensive as you may think. When you hire a social security attorney, you only pay them attorney fees if you win your claim. So, you only pay if you get paid. The social security administration carefully monitors how much a social security attorney charges. Section 406 of the  Social Security Act states that the attorneys are limited to charging a max of 25% of back pay awarded to you (up to a max of $6,000). That means that in most cases you can only be required to pay money that was already owed to you before you received your social security benefits, and even that amount is limited.

What is the Social Security Disability system? Education

Both Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) have strict requirements. Both systems provide disability payments to those who cannot work for a year or more due to an injury. While related, these programs are quite different.

  1. What is the Standard for Disability in Saginaw, Texas? - To receive disability benefits for Social Security Disability you must meet the Social Security Administration's definition of disability.
    1. The term disability is that you are unable to engage in “substantial gainful activity” [SGA] because of a medically physical or mental impairment which has lasted, or is expected to last, for at least 12 months, or is expected to result in your death.
  2. If you are working in or around Saginaw, Texas is that a factor? - If you are working in Saginaw and performing SGA, then you are considered able to work and not disabled. In 2012, the SGA limit is $1010 (after taxes) per month. If you earn more than $1010 per month, you are probably not eligible, unless there are special circumstances;
  3. Do You Have a Severe Impairment? - You must have a medical problem which significantly limits your physical or mental ability to perform basic work activities. The impairment must be expected to last for 12 months or end in death;
  4. Does Your Medical Condition Match One of SSA’s Listed Impairments? - SSA has a list of medical conditions ["Listing of Impairments."] that describes medical conditions so severe that SSA considers people who have the conditions disabled;
    1. If your condition does not meet or equal one of the conditions in the Listing of Impairments, then you must ask:
      1. Despite Your Medical Condition, Are You Able to Do Work You Did in the Past? - SSA determines what you are able to do despite your medical condition. This is called the Residual Functional Capacity (RFC). SSA compares your RFC with the physical and mental demands of your past jobs. If you are physically and mentally able to do a job that you have held within the last fifteen years, then SSA considers you "not disabled." However, if you are not able to perform any of your past jobs, then ask:
  5. Despite Your Medical Condition, Are You Able to Do Other Work? - If you cannot perform your past work, then SSA decides whether you are able to perform other types of work.

Can Children in Saginaw Qualify for Disability Benefits? Yes, but What is the Criteria?

Financially needy children under age 18 who have serious medical conditions may be eligible for Children’s SSI. A child is disabled for SSI if the child is not working and earning more than the SGA level and has a medical condition or combination of conditions that cause "marked and severe functional limitations." Medical evidence documenting the child’s medical condition is essential.

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

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.

SSI: You may qualify - Reach a qualified Saginaw 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 Saginaw SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the website.

How does the application and appeal process work? - Saginaw Disability Appeals attorney
