The consequences of your SSI and SSDI application and appeal

The vast majority of the initial applicants are denied social security benefits: generally, between 65% and 70%. Often, the difficult part is proving to the social security administration that you have a disability that qualifies you for benefits. An experienced Wyoming social security lawyer will know how to work with your doctors, organize your medical reports, and describe your ailments in such a manner that best highlights the nature and extent of your disability.  By working with an experienced Wyoming social security lawyer, you can rest assured that you have the benefit of a knowledgeable professional working for you. 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 Wyoming Social Security lawyers?

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. Most all Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis: which means they only get paid if you win your case. 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. Don’t wait to contact an experienced Wyoming Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.

Learning about the SSI and SSDI programs

There are two separate programs that provide disability benefits in the social security system. They are SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance). Generally, to qualify for disability payments, you must have an injury that prevents you from working for one year or more or an injury that will result in death. Both programs pay on a monthly basis.

To receive payments under the SSDI plan, you must have worked a percentage of the previous years (depending on your age). Thus, only those with a work history can qualify. Beneficiaries may also qualify for Medicare coverage. Speak with an experienced Wyoming SSDI lawyer to learn more.

SSI: You may qualify - Reach a qualified Wyoming Disability Attorney

SSI is paid out like welfare, meaning you cannot earn over a certain amount of money to qualify. In addition, you need to be disabled and unable to work. SSI pays out a smaller amount of money than SSDI, but unlike SSDI, you are not required to have paid into the Social Security system to qualify for payments. In addition, SSI recipients qualify for medical care through Medicaid. To contact an experienced Wyoming SSI lawyer, fill out the questionnaire on the left.

The process: Application to appeal - Wyoming Disability Appeals Lawyer

Applicants can begin the process in multiple ways: online, over the phone, and in person. The government takes around four to six months to review your case. You can have your case reviewed by an appeal panel if you are initially denied social security benefits.
