Social Security Disability in Sacramento with Gold Country Workers Comp Center
The process of obtaining SSD in Sacramento can vary from person to person. SSD, or Social Security Disability benefits, can help you if you are out of work and unable to work. Social Security does not depend on where you contracted the medical condition that prevents you from working. To briefly digress: We now know that COVID-19 can produce long lasting and serious organ and/or lung damage that may render you unable to work. (And the law provides various aids in proving you contracted coronavirus at work, meaning you could ALSO have a workers’ compensation claim!)
The first step to take is to contact an Attorney in order to determine if you are eligible. A knowledgeable disability law firm can advise you and ask the right questions in order to know which program(s) you can qualify for (as there can be more than one). Everyone handles their conditions differently, and although you might be diagnosed with a very serious illness, unfortunately that is not the only determining factor to meet Social Security’s or workers’ compensation criteria.
Being injured on the job can mean that would qualify for workers’ compensation, which means that even if the injuries are temporary, you would get some kind of compensation if someone was responsible for your health and safety. If those same injuries were to cause more serious issues and cause you to have to leave work for the foreseeable future, then you might still qualify for SSD in Sacramento in addition to those Workers Compensation benefits.
Some children could be disabled, whether due to birth defects, mental disorders, or physical conditions, and Social Security might understand that this could have lifelong effects in their ability to do work or schooling. Due to the growing cost of caring for a disabled child, receiving SSI benefits on behalf of your injured child could assist families greatly. Even if a person was not born with a chronic debilitating illness, one could develop a disability due to a traumatic event, psychological trauma or even an accident. For example, you could develop disorders such as PTSD and Depression, or suffer back problems or chronic pain if you were involved in a work, vehicle, or slip and fall accident. In fact, if you were involved in such an accident, it is wise to consult a lawyer about your eligibility even if you’re not entirely sure. Sometimes you can even file for SSD in Sacramento while you’re waiting to receive benefits such as Workers’ Comp, so there’s often no real reason to delay applying for benefits.
The Social Security Administration has several departments that aid in processing filed applications as well as work on determining who meets their criteria and who they deem is disabled enough to be out of work for a consecutive twelve months and therefore would need to receive monthly benefits, which could be not only monetary but health insurance as well.
