The Social Security Administration
The Social Security Administration (SSA) is an independent agency of the federal government, created in 1935 as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. It oversees many programs such as SSD (Social Security disability) and
SSI (Social Security insurance.) Many people choose to have an experienced lawyer represent them when filing for disability benefits or insurance. There are many advantages to doing so, and at Disability Action Advocates, we can deal with the SSA for you.
How the Administration Works
The Social Security Administration has a central office in Maryland, but it has 1,300 field offices, including one in Sacramento, and 37 teleservice centers. In filing for a claim or benefits, forms need to be meticulously and accurately filled out and very specific must be met. If you have filled out a form incorrectly or made an error in reporting something, this can cause the application to be quickly denied or lead to lengthy delays, reapplications or hearings.
Having us represent you from your initial filling can help you avoid these long delays and greatly improve your chances of getting approved. The fact is that the Social Security Administration disapproves around 65 pecent of applications for SSD. Many of these people filled the forms out on their own, but with the help of a Sacramento Social Security Disability lawyer from our firm, we can help you avoid those pitfalls.
