Southern California Social Security Disability Lawyer
If you have been disabled and your condition has prevented you from doing any type of work for 12 months or more, you may be eligible to receive monthly cash payments and Medicare coverage through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program.
For assistance obtaining Social Security Disability benefits, please contact an attorney at Caronna & Johnson, LLP today. We help disabled people in Southern California and throughout the nation obtain the disability benefits they are entitled to receive. The initial consultation is free and you will pay no attorneys fees unless we win benefits for you.
How to Qualify
To qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must have worked in jobs covered by Social Security. You must have a medical condition that meets Social Security’s definition of disability. In addition, you must meet a test concerning how long and how recently you have worked and contributed to Social Security. Although the test varies by age, generally speaking you need to have worked five out of the last 10 years.
Your disability or combination of disabilities must be severe enough to prevent you from doing your previous job or any other form of employment.
If you do not meet all of these requirements, you may be eligible to receive benefits from the Supplemental Security Income program. Even if you meet all of the SSDI requirements, your Social Security Disability application may be denied. In fact, only 31 percent of claims are awarded after the initial application. Many claims are denied for technical errors or lack of proper medical evidence of disability.
Disabled people stand a much better chance of receiving benefits if they consult an experienced Social Security Disability attorney. At Caronna & Johnson, LLP, we have a successful track record of helping our clients obtain the benefits they deserve.
