Social Security Benefits in California
The federal government has two separate programs that provide benefits to those who are dealing with a disability. At DAA we can assist you to file a claim for either type of benefit, or both.
- Social Security Disability (SSDI) Over your years of employment, you have paid into the system for Social Security. If you are suffering a disability, you have the right to seek benefits, based upon the years you paid into the system. There are certain criteria that must be met to qualify, and we can assist you to determine if you can access this program and get benefits. If you have been employed for 5 of the past 10 years and paid into the system, it is likely that you will qualify to file for benefits if you are disabled.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Supplemental Security Income is funded separately and there are no requirements regarding employment. This type of assistance is available for certain individuals that have limited or no income, are legally blind or otherwise disabled.
We can assist you in filing your application for Social Security Disability benefits and we are committed to pursuing the benefits you deserve, whether SSD or SSI.
