Get Help with Your Disability Claim
from an Experienced Attorney
Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income are complicated areas of the law that require you to know all the rules and regulations set up by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Both programs present unique challenges to you if you’re trying to win benefits.
Social security disability (SSD)
If you can’t work because of your physical and/or mental conditions and you’re expected to be out of work for at least 12 months, you may qualify for SSD. But you will only get disability benefits if you can successfully prove that you meet the SSA’s definition of “disabled.”
Before you apply for disability benefits, you should know that most people who apply are denied. But having an experienced lawyer on your side like Angelina Valle can make a difference in your claim. In fact, the SSA’s statistics show that you have a better chance of winning disability benefits when you have representation.
If you need to apply for Social Security Disability, or if you need to appeal your denial, call Angelina Valle & Associates for the help you need.
Supplemental security income (SSI)
SSI is a federal program designed to pay monthly benefits to you if you’re disabled, blind or over the age of 65 and have limited income and resources. Children with disabilities may also qualify for SSI.
If you qualify for SSI, you will most likely qualify for MediCal and food assistance, too. MediCal will help you pay for hospital stays, doctors’ bills, prescriptions and other health costs.
If you think you may meet the government’s income and resources requirements and you’re struggling with a disability, let Angelina Valle & Associates help you. Call us today.
