Need Social Security? Wilmington, Delaware Social Security lawyers can help

Do you suffer from a disability that prevents you from making a living? You may be entitled to benefits under the social security disability income system. The system is designed to provide benefits to citizens who cannot work due to disability. By working with an experienced Wilmington social security attorney, you stand a better chance of qualifying for social security benefits. Once you fill out the form on the left, an experienced Wilmington social security attorney will call you promptly. By speaking with the attorney, you are under no obligation whatsoever.

What does SSI and SSDI mean for you?

It is not easy to qualify for social security benefits in every case. Roughly 65% of people are initially turned down. 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 Wilmington 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 do people afford to pay qualified Wilmington Social Security lawyers?

Just about anyone can afford a social security lawyer. Unlike many other types of attorneys, social security lawyers do not require you to pay big out of pocket expenses. 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. Thankfully, the government has placed restrictions on how much a social security lawyer can charge a claimant. Specifically, they cannot charge you more than 25% of the past due benefits that are awarded to you. Even then, that 25% figure cannot exceed $6,000 total. So, claimants are always protected by the social security system. There is no reason to contact an experienced Wilmington Social Security lawyer. Just fill out the questionnaire on the left.

Learning about SSDI and SSI: Your federal 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.

SSDI - Contact an experienced Wilmington Disability Insurance Attorney Now

SSDI is a program for Americans who have a work history. To qualify, you must be disabled, and have worked and paid into the social security system for a fraction of the previous years (the number of years depends on your age). SSDI recipients may also qualify for Medicare. If you think you may qualify for SSDI, contact an experienced Wilmington SSDI attorney soon to discuss your options.

(SSI) Supplemental Security Income - Contact an experienced Wilmington Disability Attorney

SSI, unlike SSDI, is a welfare-based program that pays those with disabilities, regardless of their work history. To qualify, claimants must make less than a minimum threshold of income (a very small amount). Those who qualify may also be eligible for food stamps, and Medicaid.
