How Do I Apply for Disability Benefits?

What Steps Should I Take to Apply?

California SSDI and SSI Attorney

If you are disabled and need financial or medical help, the first thing to do is contact a lawyer. Many people mistakenly believe that just because they are disabled they will have their application to the Social Security Administration for benefits approved. This is not the case.

Whether you are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), it is important to retain an attorney who knows the system and will fight aggressively to get you the financial assistance and medical assistance you need.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) denies approximately 70 percent of first claims. National figures show that hiring an attorney improves your chances of receiving SSDI or SSI benefits. In addition, the process of filing for benefits is confusing to most people and is very time-consuming. Although the process can take time even with an attorney, our firm does everything in our power and within the law to push your case through the system as quickly as possible while being diligent and meticulous in our management of your claim.
