Los Angeles Social Security Disability Lawyer

Compassion. Experience. Results.

Workers who suffer a permanent disability in a workplace accident or because of a work-related illness may qualify for Federal Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits after they have been unable to return to work for one year due to of their disability. It is important, however, not to wait the full year off the job before applying. You will want your benefits available immediately upon qualifying and that means getting the paperwork in place right away.

Who Qualifies?

In general, any worker who has contributed money to the SSDI system through the payroll deduction system at his or her place of employment over the previous 10 years may receive benefits, as long as he or she can demonstrate a qualifying disability. Self-employed professionals or independent contractors must show a record of direct contributions.

What Types of Disabilities Qualify?

The Social Security Administration publishes a general guideline for qualifying disabilities.

The qualifying types of injuries and medical conditions are numerous but include:

  • Mental disabilities
  • Physical disabilities
  • Emotional disabilities

In general, if you were diagnosed with a permanent disability for California workers' compensation benefits, you should expect to receive Federal SSDI benefits. However, the procedures for a successful application are complex and a high percentage of initial applications are denied because of missing minor details.
