Many California residents may have heard about the difficulties of applying for Social Security Disability benefits and how the process can be overwhelming for someone who is already suffering from a medical condition that is preventing them from performing many basic functions. The rejection rate shows that only about one-third of first-time applicants get accepted, which is cause for alarm for those who are applying for SSD benefits.
Social Security Disability benefits can provide a crucial safety net for those who are struggling to make ends meet because they are unable to work any longer due to a medical condition. For many, it is the reason they have a roof over their head, food on their table and electricity switched on. That’s why a denial of benefits can be so harmful for California residents. Without these benefits, people may not be able to keep their houses, much less get the medical treatment they need.
Many people may worry if their medical condition qualifies to receive SSD benefits, but without checking they will never know. At our law firm we work with our clients to get them in the best possible position to be approved to receive SSD benefits for conditions ranging from migraines to fibromyalgia. We attempt help applicants gather the necessary medical and financial paperwork to prove their condition.
Just because someone’s application for SSD benefits has been denied does not mean they do not have options left. We help clients through the various stages of appeal to work to get the benefits they deserve. We understand that it can seem like everything is stacked against the applicant, but our help could help tilt the balance in the applicant’s favor.
