Applying for SSDI or SSI in San Diego

Do you live in San Diego, California, and suffer from a serious disability? If you have a long-term qualifying disability, you may be entitled to monthly cash benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA provides two benefits programs, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Both of these programs offer qualifying applicants monthly benefits.

The best step you can take when seeking SSDI or SSI benefits in San Diego is to hire an experienced lawyer who will advocate for you throughout the process. At Disability Advocates Group, our experienced SSDI and SSI lawyers will advocate for you every step of the way. We focus our practice entirely on helping clients receive the benefits to which they are entitled.

San Diego Social Security Disability Insurance Eligibility

Before you apply for SSDI benefits, it’s important to consider whether or not you qualify. The SSA imposes strict guidelines when it comes to who qualifies for benefits. You will need to prove that your disability is severe enough to keep you from working. The SSA uses a policy manual called the Blue Book to determine whether your medical condition is severe enough. The Blue Book lists thousands of different medical conditions.

If your medical condition isn’t listed, you may still be able to qualify for benefits. You will just need to show that your condition severely affects your day-to-day life. As part of the application process, you may need to undergo a thorough and comprehensive medical evaluation. We can help you locate a medical doctor who can provide you with an examination. We can help you gather and complete all of the necessary paperwork for your application.

San Diego SSI Eligibility

SSI benefits are different from SSDI benefits. Only children and adults with limited income and resources and who are disabled will qualify for SSI benefits. At Disability Advocates Group, we can help you apply for SSI benefits.

Appealing an SSDI or SSI Denial in San Diego, California

Do not be discouraged if the SSA denies your first-time SSDI or SSI application. These denials are common. At Disability Advocates Group, we’ve helped many applicants successfully appeal the denial of their initial SSDI or SSI application. The first step in the appeals process is to request a reconsideration of the decision at the office to which you initially applied.

Keep in mind that you must file the request for reconsideration within 60 days of receiving notice of the denial of your claim, or you will lose the right to request a reconsideration. If you are denied your request for reconsideration, you will need to file a request for hearing and you will have a hearing before an administrative law judge.  An administrative law judge will ask you questions during the hearing and try to determine how your medical condition affects your everyday life, including your ability to work.  We will prepare your case and you for your hearing.
