Social Security Disability Attorneys in Southern California
Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is more than just filling out a form, receiving instant approval, and receiving a check. If only it were. Instead, SSD applicants face a multi-step process of applications, documentation, and months of waiting, often followed by a claim denial. Most initial applications for Social Security disability benefits are denied.
Social Security disability attorneys help new applicants with the initial claims process, increasing the chances of a successful first application. SSD lawyers also help applicants whose claims have been denied, utilizing the Social Security disability appeals process. The Law Offices of Scott Warmuth provides these services on a contingency fee basis. You will not pay for our services until your SSD claim is approved.
Which Social Security Disability program is right for me?
A Social Security Disability attorney can help individuals who have become disabled and unable to work pursue the correct government disability program or programs.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Social Security Disability Insurance is available to certain disabled workers who have a previous work history. Benefits are determined on numerous factors, including the nature and severity of disability, ability to work in the future, and salary history. The maximum benefit amount for 2017 is $2,687 while the average benefit amount is $1,171. Eligibility is determined by complex criteria set by the Social Security Administration.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Supplemental Security Income is for aged, blind, and/or disabled persons who meet a certain threshold for financial need. SSI does not require a work history, but is limited to persons with less than $2,000 in assets (or couples with less than $3,000 in assets). Assets include income, bank accounts, vehicles, property, and anything that could be sold. The 2017 benefit level is $735 for an individual and $1,103 for a couple.
Why Was My Application Denied?
There are several reasons an application can be denied. Common reasons include making too much money, insufficient documentation of your disability, the specific nature of your disability, or the ability to work in the near future.
