Applying for SSD Benefits in Salinas?
Angelina Valle and Associates Can Help.
To be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, you must meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of “disabled.”
THE ADMINISTRATION WILL ONLY DEEM YOU DISABLED IF:
- 1You're unable to do work you've done before;
- 2It's determined you're unable to adjust to other work because of your physical and/or mental condition(s); and
- 3Your disability is expected to last for at least 12 months (or result in death).
Social Security only pays total disability, not partial disability.
"Smart but tough. She really knows the Social Security Administration. Better to see her in Person than phone consult - she's very forward on the phone - don't be thrown off; Angela VERY knowledgeable about SSA."

Is Applying for Benefits Hard?
You may think it’s simple to win benefits. You may think if you simply explain your situation to Social Security, someone will understand and start giving you a monthly benefits check.
Sadly, it’s not that simple.
Applying for disability benefits is a complicated legal process. You must meet the SSA’s definition of “disabled.”
You also have to provide clear and thorough evidence of your disability. Items like doctor’s reports, hospital records, treatment programs and more must be included in order to win. And, more importantly, they must be presented correctly.
Are Most People Who Apply Denied?
Unfortunately, yes. There are thousands of rules, regulations and procedures involved in the Social Security Disability program. You can be turned down if a Social Security employee doesn’t collect all of your medical evidence or if your doctor doesn’t understand the definition of disability. You can also be denied if your appeal isn’t handled properly.
The Social Security system can often leave outsiders baffled and wondering where to turn next. Just know: A denial isn’t the end for you. You have multiple chances to win the benefits you need in Social Security’s appeals system.
