Should I Apply for SSDI or SSI Benefits?
If you’ve asked around about social security disability benefits you probably know that there are two types. Both are awarded to those who cannot work full or part-time due to a disability but they differ in the following ways:
- SSDI benefits are awarded to those who have worked and contributed funds to the social security system in the past.
- SSI benefits are awarded based on income and require no past contributions to the social security system.
Are Some Applicants Eligible for Both SSDI and SSI Benefits?
The answer is yes. Some applicants are eligible for both SSDI and SSI benefits but it is a rare occurrence to receive both types. If you believe that you are eligible for both SSDI and SSI benefits, or additional types of social security benefits it is advisable to consult with an experienced social security attorney. Many attorneys will consult with a potential applicant for FREE and will lay out all potential options on the table. It is important to note that a good social security attorney will not charge his/her client until financial benefits have been awarded.
How Can I Get Social Security Disability Benefits Without a Hassle?
This is a great question and one that every applicant should ask. The application process for SSDI and SSI benefits is notoriously difficult and can take months just to receive a rejection notice! The process can be extremely frustrating, confusing and can result in a lot of headaches. Those who are applying for social security benefits often find themselves in stressful situations and don’t need more difficulties added to what they are already experiencing.
The best way to get social security benefits quickly and without a hassle is to consult for FREE with an experienced social security attorney. S/he should do the following for you:
1) Consult with you for free and advise you as to which benefits you should apply for;
2) Discuss relevant medical information and how information should be presented in the application;
3) Advise you regarding other considerations that should be made in filling out the application;
4) Track the application’s process for you and re-apply if necessary (re-application often isn’t necessary with the help of an attorney)
5) Only charge you for services rendered when you have been awarded benefits (usually $6000 or 25% of retroactive benefits, whichever is less)
