Why You Should Seek Assistance when Applying for SSI or SSDI Benefits

If you have already applied for Social Security benefits and your claim was denied, you are among the majority. Roughly 65% - 75% of Social Security applications are not approved annually. You can dramatically increase your odds of winning your benefits claim, however, by working with an experienced Sanger Social Security attorney. This is because most Social Security lawyers have learned what criteria the review board is looking for through years of handling applications for benefits through the Social Security system. Many Social Security applicants face the possibility of homelessness if their SSI or SSDI claim is denied. The Social Security system provides monthly payments to qualified disabled Americans that make living in this expensive country more manageable. In many cases, claimants also qualify for critical medical coverage through the Social Security system. SSI claimants can get Medicaid, while SSDI claimants may qualify for Medicare.

Sanger, California Social Security Attorneys: What do They Charge?

If you believe that you are not able to afford a social security attorney, think again. They are not as expensive as you may think. Generally, you do not pay a Social Security lawyer unless he or she is able to win your claim and get you benefits. This means they only get paid if you get paid. The US government limits how much a Social Security lawyer can charge you. They are limited to charging the lesser of: 25% of the back pay awarded to you, or a maximum of $6,000. Thus, if you are awarded $50,000 in back pay, the maximum your attorney can charge is $6,000, even though 25% of $50,000 is $12,500.

Learn About SSDI and SSI: Your Federal Social Security Programs

The Social Security system was created to provide disability payments to some of our most vulnerable citizens: Americans who are not able to work due to an injury. In order to qualify for Social Security the injury must keep you from working for at least a year or more. Under the Social Security system, there are two disability programs: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Both are explained below.

1.    How is disability defined in Sanger, California? - In order to receive Social Security disability benefits, you must meet the Social Security Administration's
        standard for disability.
        a.    The term disability is defined as being unable to engage in “substantial gainful activity” [SGA] due to a of a physical or mental impairment which has lasted
                - or is expected to last - for a minimum of 12 months, or is expected to result in death.
2.    Is working in Sanger, California a factor in obtaining Social Security disability benefits? - If you are working in Sanger and the work meets the definition of
       substantial gainful activity, you are considered able to work and, therefore, you are not disabled and would not qualify for Social Security disability benefits.
       In 2012, if you earn more than $1010 per month (after taxes), you are probably not eligible for Social Security, unless there special circumstances exist.
3.    Do You Have a Severe Impairment? - In order to be considered severely impaired, you must have a medical problem that significantly limits your physical or
       mental ability to perform basic work activities. The impairment must be expected to last for 12 months or result in death.
4.    Does Your Medical Condition Match One of SSA’s Listed Impairments? - The Social Security Administration (SSA) has promulgated a list of medical conditions
        ["Listing of Impairments."] of such great severity that the SSA considers people who with the conditions disabled;
        1.    If your condition is not included in the SSA's Listing of Impairments, you have to ask yourself the following question in regard to obtaining Social Security
               Disability Benefits:
               1.  Am I able to do the same type of work I was able to do before the onset of the disability? - If the SSA determines that you are able to continue doing the same
                    work as you did before your medical condition you may have difficulty proving eligibility. The measure of how capable you are at doing your job after the
                   onset of your disability as opposed to before the onset of the disability is called the Residual Functional Capacity (RFC). In determining your eligibility for
                   benefits, the SSA compares your current RFC with the physical and mental demands of your past jobs. If you are physically and mentally able to do a job that
                   you have held within the last fifteen years, then SSA considers you "not disabled." If you are not able to perform any of your past jobs,
                   then ask yourself:
5.    Despite Your Medical Condition, Can You Do Other Work? - If you are unable to perform work similar to what you have done in the past, then the SSA will
       determine whether you are able to perform other types of work rather than collect benefits.

Can Children in Sanger, California Qualify for Disability Benefits? Yes, but What is the Criteria?

Financially, needy children under age 18 who have serious medical conditions may be eligible for Children's SSI. A child is disabled for SSI if the child is not working and earning more than the SGA level and has a medical condition or combination of conditions that cause "marked and severe functional limitations." Medical evidence documenting the child's medical condition is essential.
