SSD Appeals and Wait Times

Each year, many people living in California apply for Social Security disability benefits. While these individuals are suffering from severe health conditions that make work difficult, if not impossible, the approval process may be lengthy. This is particularly true when the Social Security Administration denies a benefit claim and an applicant decides to appeal this decision.

Evidence that people have qualifying hematological disorders

There are a variety of different hematological disorders that can be severely debilitating. Both malignant and non-cancerous hematological conditions may leave victims unable to work. People in California who suffer from these disabling disorders may be eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits when they apply for them.

How the SSA evaluates visual disorders

Californians who have certain types of visual disorders may be unable to work. People who develop disabling conditions may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. It is important to understand how the Social Security Administration evaluates visual disorders when people apply for benefits.

Can I get Social Security Disability (SSDI) for a Mental Illness?

Question: I have been struggling with depression for a couple of decades. I have tried many things to combat it—medication, therapy, etc. The last year I have had to take two leaves of absence related to it. My doctor finally suggested that I apply for Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI). Can I get SSDI for a condition that isn’t a physical illness?

Evidence requirements for SSD

California residents seeking Social Security Disability must provide sufficient evidence of the disability in order to be considered eligible for benefits. Making this determination is critically important to receiving benefits. It may also be one of the most difficult challenges a person must overcome.
