Do I Qualify for Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability Insurance, which can also be referred to as SSD or SSDI, is designed to provide monthly benefits to those who have been rendered unable to work for a year or more, due to a physical or mental workplace illness or injury. The amount you are entitled to receive will be based on your previous payments into the system through payroll taxes, up to a maximum capped limit. In order to claim, you must be able to provide evidence of being disabled and, therefore, unable to work for at least twelve months. Although our Santa Clarita social security disability attorneys tend to focus on work-related SSD claims, our skills can also be applied to those claims which have arisen from other circumstances. If you need expert legal representation on an SSDI matter, we will consider your case.

Any type of physical or mental disability could qualify you for receipt of social security disability benefits, and our lawyers have successfully recovered this for all manner of circumstances. To provide some examples, the common injuries we are approached to claim SSDI for tend to include:

  • Herniated disk and other back and neck injuries
  • Orthopedic injuries (broken bones)

  • Liver failure and kidney disease

  • Cancer
  • Traumatic brain injury
