Social Security Facts
It has been estimated that about 30% of people entering the workforce today will become temporarily or permanently disabled before they reach retirement age. Over 2.5 million people apply for Social Security disability benefits each year, and the Social Security Administration is looking for any possible way to deny each of those applications. The simple fact of the matter is this: the vast majority of SSDI and SSI claimants will have no idea how to properly and thoroughly prepare a disability case for a hearing, whereas our attorneys have a high level of familiarity and expertise with Social Security rules and regulations. If you have already received your disability denial in Alabama, you shouldn’t be surprised or discouraged. Statistically, 70% of all Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims, represented or otherwise, are denied at the initial application stage. What does this mean for SSDI and SSI applicants who are disabled and need help? They should learn everything they can about the benefit approval system to better their chances of winning, with or without the help of a disability attorney or lawyer.
Goal of Our Alabama Social Security Disability Website
Frequently, people who are injured or otherwise become disabled and are unable to continue working in their current job begin looking into SSDI and SSI as a means of obtaining short-term, long-term or even permanent income. The SSDI and SSI application, appeal and hearing processes can be a bit complicated, so we have outlined some of the most common questions someone new to the programs might ask. The purpose of this site is to provide free information that, typically, is impossible to get from the person taking your claim for SSDI and SSI benefits.
We hope the information, tips and advice presented here can help you understand: 1) How to apply for benefits with the Social Security Administration in Alabama, 2) How the SSDI and SSI system works, 3) What the SSA doesn’t tell you about the application and appeal process, 4) What you can do on your own in Alabama as a disabled applicant to help your case, 5) When you should consider getting a Alabama disability advocate, representative, or attorney and 6) What you should never do that might potentially harm your case in Alabama.
When you hire a disability attorney, you must sign a fee agreement that allows the SSA to pay your attorney if your claim is approved. The SSA will review the agreement to make sure it meets the fee agreement guidelines. This is to ensure that your lawyer receives only what he or she is entitled to. All fee agreements must be on a contingency basis.
The Fee for Social Security Disability attorneys is limited to 25% of the past-due benefits you are awarded, up to a maximum of $6,000. The attorney will be paid only out of your past-due benefits, or “backpay.” If no back-dated benefits are awarded, the attorney will not receive a fee. The SSA pays the entire lawyer’s fee out of your first disability check. Some attorneys do require you to pay for medical records.
Why Hire Disability Lawyers Ferguson and Ferguson?
Did yo know that unrepresented claimants who are successful and win their claims may not obtain the most favorable “onset date,” which affects how much backpay they get. The date of onset of the disability determines how much a claimant will receive in backpay; therefore, being able to prove the earliest possible onset is of extreme importance for a Social Security disability or SSI claimant. If you suffer from a medical, psychological, or psychiatric impairment and have initiated or been denied on a SSDI, or SSI, claim for benefits, we are here to help you with your case. The Social Security program entitles you to income replacement benefits if you suffer from a significant illness or impairment and are unable to earn a living. Statistics show that hiring a lawyer is one of the best decisions you can make in a Social Security claim. You need a good Social Security attorney because the federal law is complex and very confusing. If you are in such a position, and believe that you are truly disabled, call us at 1-256-534-3435 or 1-800-752-1998 or send us an email and we will help you right away.
