SSD: What are medically determinable impairments?

Those in Anaheim who suffer from a disability may want to apply for disability benefits, to help make ends meet financially. However, in order for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to approve a Social Security disability claim, a certain set of specific criteria must be met. It can be greatly difficult to know what qualifies and what doesn't -- and the legal nuances involved can prove to be very complex. Often, it requires the careful examination of the situation before it can be determined whether a person has a valid Social Security disability claim. Attorneys in Anaheim are available to assist with this process.

What are the requirements for filing for SSI benefits?

Supplemental security income benefits, hereinafter referred to as SSI benefits, are important to many Southern California residents. They are available to individuals who are over the age of 65, who are disabled, and also those who are blind. In some cases children are able to secure SSI benefits if they are afflicted by these disabilities, and in addition to the SSI benefits that are federally funded some individuals may also qualify for state-supported state supplementary payments, hereinafter referred to as SSP.

Don't let the SSD application process overwhelm you

If you are reading this blog, there is a good chance you or someone you love is suffering from a serious illness, injury or medical condition and you may be wondering whether you qualify for Social Security disability benefits. The Social Security Administration has developed two programs designed to help Americans who are seriously disabled and are unable to maintain gainful employment.

Can you work if receiving Social Security Disability benefits?

If you're receiving Social Security Disability benefits, it can be unclear whether you can go back to work and what your income restrictions might be if you want to continue collecting benefits. The Social Security Administration has several programs to assist the disabled back into the workforce, without pressure to work beyond your disability. 

Discussing the difference between SSI and SSDI

The Social Security Administration has two distinct programs geared towards providing financial relief to disabled Americans who qualify. Before we go into the differences, the two primary factors remain the same. The condition must be serious enough to prevent you from maintaining gainful employment, and the condition must last at least a year or be expected to end in death.

California firm giving honest assessments of SSD claims

As many California residents may be aware, the process of filing for benefits after a debilitating injury can be complex and lengthy. Determining the best benefits program to pursue, and what evidence will be required to make a proper application, can make the difference between receiving needed compensation and being unable to make ends meet. Because of this, people injured in workplace accidents should not forget about the potential to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).
