SSI and SSDI: your safety net

The statistics are not favorable for initial applicants. About 65% or more initial applicants are denied annually. Increase your chances of winning your Social Security claim by contacting an experienced Waterloo Social Security lawyer. Your attorney should have the necessary experience to understand how to make out your best case. This may include working with your doctors, or having you seek a new cost-effective examination that can help make out your case. 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.

How do I pay a qualified Waterloo Social Security lawyer? I don’t have any money!

You may be surprised to learn that a social security lawyer is quite affordable, even if you have no source of income. Social security attorneys are paid according to a strict fee schedule. They can only be paid if they win your case for you. That makes sense because claimants usually have not expendable money. 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. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Waterloo Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.

Education: SSDI versus SSI

Two separate social security programs provide disability payments to injured people: SSI and SSDI (Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance). To earn disability payments under either one, you must suffer from an injury that (1) prevents you from working for a year or more, or (2) will result in death. Short-term injuries are not covered by the social security system.

SSDI: The Federal Program for Those With a Work History – Connect with a Knowledgeable Waterloo Disability Insurance Attorney Immediately

SSDI pays disability payments to those who have a qualifying work history, who are disabled. For that reason, not everyone is eligible for SSDI. To qualify, you will have to show, in addition to proving your disability, that you have worked a certain percentage of your previous years (depending on your age). Medicare medical coverage is also available to some SSDI recipients. Contact your Waterloo SSDI lawyer to learn more now.

SSI: a welfare-based program - Contact an experienced Waterloo Disability Attorney

Supplemental Security Income, or SSI for short, is available for people who suffer from a disability regardless of work history. SSI is paid from general revenues, unlike the SSDI system. SSI beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicaid and Food Stamps. They may also be eligible for additional income from the state. Contact your Waterloo SSI lawyer to learn more.
