Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income are federal government programs designed to provide income to people who are unable to work because of a disability.
These programs are funded by the taxes deducted from each pay check that workers receive.
Even if you meet these requirements, your SSDI claim may still be denied by the Social Security Administration. In 2009, over 70 % of the 2,816,244 initial applications filed for SSDI were denied. The Social Security Administration’s own statistics show that applicants represented by a lawyer have a greater chance of having their claims approved than applicants with no legal representation. If you need help applying for SSDI or SSI benefits or if your claim was denied by the Social Security Administration, contact the Social Security Disability lawyers at Morris, King and Hodge.
Initial consultations to discuss your social security claim are free and we handle social security cases on a contingency basis, which means there is no fee or costs unless we collect money for you. Social Security has special rules for contingency fee contracts in disability cases where the most that your lawyer can be paid is 25% of your past due benefits if successful up to the statutory limit. No fee is charged if your claim is unsuccessful.
