Programs to help with disabilities

Disabilities are shocking and life changing. While they make everything more difficult, they don't have to completely dominate your life. If a disability hampers your ability to earn a living, there are programs that can help you. Two in general, SSI and SSDI, are available to the American public to assist with living expenses. Take a closer look to see what they can do for you.

Comprehensive service when applying for SSD benefits

Some Los Angeles residents may attempt to apply for Social Security Disability benefits on their own. And then, when their application is denied, they may be looking for answers - or they may just give up. Our readers need to know that there are multiple levels to an application for SSD benefits - the process oftentimes isn't as simple as just submitting an application. For a disabled person in Los Angeles, whether it is a physical disability or a mental impairment, having an application for SSD benefits denied can be a devastating financial blow.

After a denial of SSD benefits, prepare for the appeals hearing

For some people, it is the worst news they could receive at a critical time: being denied Social Security Disability benefits. It may have been months since they submitted their initial application, and the waiting game has been nerve-wracking. A denial of benefits can seem like an incredible defeat, but once Los Angeles residents get over this initial disappointment they will hopefully remember that they can appeal that decision. And, in some cases, an appeal of an initial denial of Social Security Disability benefits can lead to an appeals hearing.

SSD benefits are just part of the solution for a disability

When Los Angeles residents who have applied for Social Security Disability benefits finally receive notification that those benefits will be approved, a great sense of relief often occurs. For a person who has become disabled and is therefore facing a complete inability to work, SSD benefits can be a financial lifeline that is sorely needed. However, Social Security Disability benefits are just one part of the solution for a Los Angeles resident who will now live with a disability.

Are Social Security Disability benefits "welfare"?

Any of our Los Angeles readers who are familiar with previous posts here know that there can be a great deal of confusion when it comes to applying for benefits from the Social Security Administration. It seems like it doesn't matter if an applicant is attempting to get approved for Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Disability benefits or Social Security retirement benefits - we all know that when it comes to the federal government, hardly anything is easy. But one question that leads to confusion can be addressed squarely: Are Social Security Disability benefits something that most people refer to as "welfare"?
