Social Security Disability Insurance
If you have a permanent disabling medical condition that keeps you from being able to work and earn a living, you may qualify for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI.) A Sacramento SSDI lawyer from our office can help determine if you qualify and can help you move forward in an efficient manner.
Funds for SSDI come from the Social Security tax, which means you must have worked and paid into social security. The SSA looks at how long you have worked and gives you work credits for that time. You need to have earned 40 work credits and 20 must come from a period that is 10 years before your disability. You must have a disability that is expected to last more than twelve months. Additionally, your loss of potential income must be over one thousand dollars a month.
Disability Action Advocates has helped people with their SSDI claims for over 20 years, and we know how to get results. Call our firm now at (888) 421-8705!
How Do I Apply?
The Social Security Administration provides information on how to apply for benefits through their website. Individuals may also be able to apply in person at a local Social Security office. Those that choose to file over the phone will have to undergo an approximately one-hour long interview session.
Filing an application yourself can be an overwhelming and impersonal experience, as the SSA is undermanned and has a tremendous backlog of applications. The large number of claims submitted and the limited resources and staff at the Social Security Administration can easily lead to a denial of a disability claim if not thoroughly presented. One error, lack of sufficient documentation, or other issue can immediately result in a denial, and you could suffer longer than you should.
