The saving power of the SSI and SSDI system

Approximately 65% or more initial applicants are denied social security benefits. 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 Westland social security lawyer. Arm yourself with a professional who understands the best tactics for winning your social security claim. 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 people afford to pay qualified Westland Social Security lawyers?

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. Statutorily, social security attorneys can only make the following: the smaller amount of (1) 25% of back pay awarded to you, or (2) $6,000 total. The social security administration has to approve the amount of the attorney fees at the time you are awarded your benefits. By filling out the questionnaire on the left, an experienced Westland Social Security attorney will contact you.

Learning about the SSI and SSDI programs

The Social Security System can provide you with monthly payments if you qualify. To qualify for either the SSI (Supplemental Security Income) or SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) programs, you must meet their criteria. Generally, to qualify for either, you must suffer from an injury that prevents you from working for a year or more (or one that results in death). Both systems are explained below.

Do you qualify for SSDI? – Work with a Knowledgeable Westland 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.

The federal SSI program – work with a qualified Westland 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 Westland SSI lawyer to learn more.
