If you have been hurt or suffer from an illness that prevents you from being gainfully employed, you may have a right to benefits through Social Security. The compensation available can cover lost income, medical expenses and even job retraining. You want an experienced lawyer to guide you through the process, one who knows the law and has helped others in similar circumstances.
At the Disability Rights Law Center, we bring years of experience to people throughout the Los Angeles metropolitan area who cannot work because of illness or injury. We have assisted thousands of applicants throughout the administrative process, from the preparation and filing of an initial application to appeals of denials of claims for benefits. We know that the process can be frustrating and overwhelming at times. We know how to cut through the red tape and help you get the benefits you need.
Our Social Security Disability Law Blog
We created this blog as a forum for information about your rights in Social Security disability and Supplemental Security Income applications. We will provide regular posts to the blog, adding articles addressing such issues as:
- Important changes within the Social Security process or the Social Security Administration. We will keep you updated with any news about or from the Social Security Administration, so that you can stay up to date on your rights.
- Social Security disability benefits. We will help you understand what benefits are available through the Social Security disability program and how you can qualify for them. We will also address the types of injury or illness that qualify you, including depression and mental illness.
- Supplemental Security Income. In certain circumstances, based on need, you may be eligible for additional Social Security compensation, even though you already qualify for SSD benefits. We will help you determine whether you are eligible and what steps you need to take to protect your rights.
We encourage you to join in the dialogue created by this blog. Please feel free to post any questions, comments or concerns on any subject discussed here.
