Your SSI or SSDI application: it makes a big difference
The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. If you have a disability, you will want to make sure you do the best job presenting the nature of your injury to the review board. Most often, the best way to do this is to work with an experienced Shelby social security lawyer. Arm yourself with a professional who understands the best tactics for winning your social security claim. For many applicants, they face the possibility of homelessness if their SSI or SSDI application is denied. The social security system provides monthly payments that make living in this expensive country manageable. In many cases, claimants also qualify for critical medical coverage through the social security system. SSI claimants can get Medicaid, while SSDI claimants may qualify for Medicare.
Shelby Social Security attorneys: how much do they cost?
Most people can actually afford a social security lawyer, even those without jobs. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. The social security administration carefully monitors how much a social security attorney charges. The attorneys are statutorily 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. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Shelby Social Security attorney will contact you.
Social Security: Qualifying for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) or Social Security Income (SSI)
Disability payments under SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) are contingent upon you proving the existence of a disability. 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.

SSDI is a program for Americans who have a work history. To qualify, you must be disabled, and have worked and paid into the social security system for a fraction of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. If you think you may qualify for SSDI, contact an experienced Shelby SSDI attorney soon to discuss your options.
SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Shelby 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 Shelby SSI attorney by filling out the questionnaire on the left.
Proving your disability: the process of applying and appealing your decision - Shelby Disability Appeal Attorney
