Social Security Disability benefits help disabled individuals support themselves financially. When applying for disability benefits, claimants need medical records that explain their disability and how their doctor treats the condition. In addition, the condition must prevent them from working in any field to qualify for benefits. If you were denied benefits, Social Security lawyers in Bakersfield, CA, could help you figure out what to do.

Supplemental Security Income

Supplemental Security Income is a disability program for disabled adults and children. To qualify for the program, the claimant must have a physical or mental condition that stops them from working, and income restrictions exist for their household.

For example, if you apply for a disabled child, you must provide information about who treated your child and where medical records are available. You’ll need to provide information about your income and assets, too. Social Security lawyers in Bakersfield can help determine if your child is eligible for benefits.

Social Security Disability Insurance

Social Security Disability Insurance is available to former workers who developed a disability while working. All workers pay into the Social Security program throughout their work history, and if they become disabled, they can get SSDI to provide financial support. The benefits they receive each month depending on how long the worker has paid into the program and how much they have contributed.

Disability benefits are available for adults and children with disabilities. The benefits provide financial support for those who cannot work because of physical or mental impairment. Contact the Law Offices of Jonathan O. Pena to discuss your disability appeal today.
