Adjusting the amount of Supplemental Security Income payments

Los Angeles residents who depend on Supplemental Security Income are living on tight budgets. After all, to qualify for SSI benefits to begin with Los Angeles residents must have severely limited financial resources. These individuals and families depend on their SSI-benefits check each month, and they likely look closely at any potential adjustments that might be made to those benefits.

Arthritis and your chances of qualifying for SSD benefits

Many elderly people in Los Angeles suffer from arthritis. Some will simply accept that this is part of the aging process for some people. However, while there may be many health issues that can be attributed to "old age," the reality is that arthritis is a medical condition that could become a disability for some people.

Once approved, will you receive SSD benefits for previous months?

Our Los Angeles readers know that the application process for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can take quite a bit of time to complete. First, there is the process of gather all of the documentation that the Social Security Administration (SSA) will need to review, as well as filling out the initial application. Then, once the initial application is submitted, it can take a few months for the SSA to complete the initial review process. From there, applicants can expect to either be approved or denied for SSD benefits.

3 things you can do to get approved for your SSA Disability faster

There are currently about 9 million Americans on Social Security Disability. Such a large number makes it sound like obtaining your SSA disability should be a fairly straightforward feat. However, if you look a little closer at the numbers, the levels of people who actually receive their SSA disability have actually been in decline for several years.

Critical factors in processing your application for SSD benefits

When a Los Angeles resident finally submits a complete initial application for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, it can probably feel like a large part of the ordeal is done. However, the reality is that even after all of the hard work of gathering information and documents for the application, the submission of the application is just the starting point. Federal regulations require a rigorous screening of applications by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
