SSI and SSDI: your safety net

Approximately 65% or more initial applicants are denied social security benefits. The application and appeal process can sometimes be difficult to navigate through. For example, you will need to understand the best method of presenting proof of your disability. An experienced Tuscaloosa social security lawyer can really help with that process. For many, losing their social security claim has devastating consequences. Those who are disabled who do not have an alternative source of income potentially face homelessness. The SSI and SSDI systems provide monthly payments from the federal government for our most vulnerable citizens. These payments can cover the cost of living, and in some cases the SSI and SSDI systems also provide medical coverage.

How much does a qualified Tuscaloosa Social Security lawyer cost?

Social security lawyers are very affordable. Almost always, Social Security lawyers work on a “contingency” basis: meaning that they only get paid if you win your claim. That means, in most cases, you have nothing to lose by working with a social security attorney. First off, a social security attorney is legally not allowed to charge more than 25% of the back pay/past due benefits awarded to you, up to a maximum of $6,000. Second, you are insured not to pay more than that because the government must approve of the attorney’s fee before you are required to pay the attorney for his services. There is no reason to contact an experienced Tuscaloosa Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

Eligibility for either SSDI or SSI

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 Tuscaloosa Disability Insurance Attorney Today

SSDI provides disability payments to Americans who can demonstrate a work history of paying taxes into the social security system. To qualify, you must prove (1) the existence of a disability that prevents you from working for at least one year, and (2) that you worked and paid social security taxes over the course of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. Contact an experienced Tuscaloosa SSDI lawyer now to learn more.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – Talk to an experienced Tuscaloosa Disability Attorney

The SSI system provides monthly payments, of a minimum amount, to disabled people. The benefits are paid regardless of whether you previously paid into the Social Security System. Although payments are generally lower under SSI, the funds help those who critically need it. In addition, successful claimants may also qualify for medical care through Medicaid. Fill out the form to contact an experienced Tuscaloosa SSI lawyer.

Proving your disability: the process of applying and appealing your decision - Tuscaloosa Disability AppealAttorney

You can begin the application process online, in person, or by phone. The process can take a while because the number of applications is generally very high. Usually, you have to wait anywhere between three and six months, maybe longer. Once you get your results, you will either receive a notice of payments, or you will be denied. In which case, you can appeal the decision in person or have your attorney appear on your behalf.
