By filling out the questionnaire on the left, you can contact an experienced Wheeling social security attorney. It is time to get the help you need.

Your SSI or SSDI application: it makes a big difference

Roughly 65 – 75% of applicants are initially denied for social security benefits. An experienced Wheeling social security lawyer can increase your chance of success. Your attorney can emphasize the facts that evidence your disability in a manner that is most appropriate. Your attorney will likely be able to draw from a wealth of experienced working with the review board inspecting your application and hearing your appeal. 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 can I afford a Social Security lawyer when I can’t work?

Because the people who need a social security lawyer usually do not have a source of income, social security lawyers structure their fees to make their services affordable. When you hire a social security attorney, you only pay them attorney fees if you win your claim. So, you only pay if you get paid. The government limits how much a social security attorney can charge you. They are limited to charging the lesser of: 25% of the back pay awarded to you, or a maximum of $6,000. So, an attorney cannot make more than $6,000 on your case, nor can he or she make more than 25% of the back pay owed to you. Thus, if you are awarded $20,000 in back pay, generally the max you can be charged is $6,000. Contact your Wheeling Social Security lawyer today by filling out the form on the left.

Who qualifies for SSI and SSDI?

Disability benefits under Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are given to applicants who cannot work due to a disability. Generally, the disability must prevent you from working for a year or more or result in death. Benefits under SSI and SSDI are different.
