SSI in Sacramento with GCWC
If you are thinking of filing for SSI in Sacramento look no further than Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center. Our attorneys are professionals who are equipped to manage Social Security Disability claims, SSI claims as well as other disability programs available for residents of California.
For example, “CalWORKS” is a program of benefit payments and employment assistance for those who are partially disabled and have limited income. Participation in an employment services program may be required. There are private insurance sources that automatically include some disability benefits but whose policies vary on how they consider a disability and how they define the disabled.
In California, it may be important to note that a small percentage of your paycheck is deducted and paid into a special disability insurance fund, called State Disability Insurance. This will pay you disability benefits if you cannot perform your regular work due to any medical reason and are not receiving comparable benefits elsewhere.
A lawyer can help you get SSI, SS Disability or Workers’ Compensation benefits or other benefits in Sacramento by guiding you to a program that better fits your needs and determine which one you will more than likely qualify for. Each program has pros, cons, and benefits, and sometimes there’s a possibility to qualify for more than one at a time.
In order to win a Social Security Disability claim (whether that is for SSI or SSDI), it normally requires a lot more work and effort than other programs. Unfortunately, showing documentation that you were diagnosed with a debilitating illness is not nearly enough. In almost all cases, Social Security will still investigate whether this deters you from working various jobs that the Dept. of Labor says are available even with the medical conditions your medical file establish s that you have. That is, the SSA will still require you to produce medical proof of your inability to work at any job covered by the Dept. of Labor using its definition of functional job demands, including minimum wage work requiring you to deal with a myriad of stress-inducing questions and forms to fill out, which is why having a lawyer by your side is not only advantageous but a great support system.
But Social Security Disability is available to all United States citizens who have enough earnings history. If your earning history is not enough, you may still qualify for SSI benefits based on the same medical showing. If you have questions about whether you qualify for benefits, you should contact an SSI attorney in Sacramento as soon as possible. It doesn’t cost you any upfront money to hire one, and it’s generally recommended to get the process started as soon as you’re out of work. An attorney can help you at any stage from the application process all the way to a hearing if necessary.
