Social Security Disability
There are two Federal programs available that provide benefits for persons who lack the ability to work due to a physical or mental disability, Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income. Under both Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), attorney’s fees are awarded only if a favorable decision is issued which results in an award of past-due benefits. This means that if we do not win your appeal, you do not owe anything. The attorney fee is limited to twenty-five percent (25%) of the back benefit award, not to exceed $6,000. All attorney’s fees must be approved by the Administrative Law Judge.
Social Security Disability (SSD)
Social Security Disability is a Federal program that provides benefits to those people who are disabled and insured. A person is disabled if he or she is unable to engage in substantial gainful employment, and a person is insured if he or she has paid into the system for a specified period of time.
Supplemental Security Income
SSI is a Federal program that provides benefits to those people who are disabled and indigent. Unlike SSD, there is no requirement that you have ever worked or paid into the system.
