While appealing a disability claim may be a time-consuming and difficult process, having legal assistance enhances your chances of getting your claim granted. We at Disability Advocates Group are committed to assisting you in obtaining critical financial resources.

Social Security Disability Qualification

If you have a disability and can’t do the work, you did before or can’t do other work because of your health, and if your disability has lasted or is expected to last at least a year or cause your death, you may be eligible for SSD benefits.

You may be eligible for SSD benefits if you are blind or deaf, have trouble breathing, have cancer, have chronic heart disease, have severe psoriasis on your hands and feet, are HIV positive, have a problem with your immune system, have a mental illness, have multiple sclerosis, or have another severe medical condition.

Our Long Beach Social Security Disability Lawyers in California can help you find out if you may be eligible for benefits by answering your questions.

Social Security Benefits

What are the different types of disability benefits?

You must have paid into the Social Security system via income tax deductions to be eligible. You must also have a sufficient number of labour credits. The more job credits you require as you become older, in general. However, regardless of your financial means, you may be eligible for disability compensation under this programme.

This programme, as the name indicates, offers supplementary income to persons who are handicapped, blind, or over the age of 65. There is no requirement to have paid into the Social Security system, unlike SSDI. You must fulfil the financial conditions in order to get these advantages. These benefits, however, are “means tested,” meaning you must have restricted financial resources to qualify.

FAQs

Long Beach Social Security Disability Lawyers

No. The amount of SSI varies from state to state. Each state determines if it will supplement the Federal Benefit Rate (FBR) provided by Social Security. The state of California provides a State Supplemental Payment (SSP). These amounts may be adjusted annually to account for cost of living changes.

This is the amount that a state may add to the national Federal Benefit Rate (FBR). California’s State Supplemental Payment is $199.21. Combined with the Federal Benefit Rate of $841, this allows an individual a total benefit of $1,040.21. The FBR for a couple is $1,261, while the SSP for a couple is $504.64. The maximum benefit for a couple is $1,765.64. Some states that provide a State Supplement Payment, including California, have arranged with Social Security to combine their supplemental payments with the federal payment. There are other states that provide State Supplemental Payments and manage their own programs. These states may require an additional application.

Yes. In California, people who qualify for SSI also get Medi-Cal health coverage. They may also qualify for CalFresh (formerly Food Stamps).

Yes. If you’re eligible for SSI, you’ll automatically get Medi-Cal— the federal Medicaid health coverage program in California.

  • The disability must be life-threatening or have lasted or be expected to last at least a year.
  • The disability must prevent you from doing Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) for at least a year.

I wanted to take the time and thank Mr. Thomas for handling my workers' compensation case. He always communicated with me and always kept me in the loop on what was going on with my case. Even during the pandemic, he made me feel like my case was important. Thank you, Mr. Thomas, for your time and your hard work.

I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Thomas on a claim and was very pleased with the outcome. He was very thorough in explaining everything needed to get the best chance at the desired results. Mr. Thomas showed a tremendous amount of dedication in making sure he provided a great client experience. He didn’t talk over my head, and he was patient with my questions. Mr. Thomas is super in touch and highly relatable to the everyday working American. He was a perfect fit for me and my family. We were pleased with the outcome on our injury case.

I was lucky enough to have Mr. Nantais as my lawyer. I had spoken to several other workers' compensation lawyers before meeting with Mr. Nantais. Unlike the other lawyers, I found Mr. Nantais very easy to talk with right from the start. He understood what had happened to me with my work situation and showed compassion for my plight. What really impressed me was how well Mr. Nantais represented me when dealing with the opposing counsel. He did an excellent job advocating for my needs, and I was very happy with the case's outcome.
