Qualified Valdosta Social Security lawyers: are they expensive?

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. 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. There is no reason to contact an experienced Valdosta Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

What is the Social Security Disability system? Education

Understanding how the Social Security disability program works is important. There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits to those who cannot work for a year or more due to a disability: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). Both programs require that you suffer from a disability to qualify, but each program has other separate requirements for eligibility.
