Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits


San Jose and Fremont Attorneys Explain Process Details for Social Security Disability

Attorneys at David Allen & Associates San Jose and Fremont explain that applying for SSDI benefits involves a precise set of steps to establish eligibility and be approved by the Social Security Administration. Lawyers first point out that it is necessary or likely that you will be out of work for at least 12 months in order to be eligible for Social Security benefits. San Jose and Fremont Disability attorneys explain a situation such as a doctor prescribing chemotherapy for cancer that will disable you for over 12 months. Our Social Security attorneys in San Jose and Fremont point out that the treatments need not have begun for you to apply for Social Security disability. Our lawyers say that details such as this one are often unknown by average applicants and may impact their ability to receive Social Security.

San Jose and Fremont Lawyers Look at Insurability for Social Security Disability

Attorneys say it is essential to fully qualify for Social Security benefits. Disability attorneys explain that you must have contributed to the SSDI benefits trust fund. The test for qualification, our San Jose and Fremont Social Security attorneys point out, is different than the test for old-age survivors’ benefits. This is the program, our San Jose and Fremont Social Security lawyers say, that most people think of as Social Security in retirement. Furthermore, our Social Security disability attorneys in San Jose and Fremont say the formula to determine whether you paid enough quarters into SSDI benefits fund is complex. Our San Jose and Fremont Social Security disability attorneys say the determination as to whether you paid enough quarters to qualify is generally made when you apply for Social Security disability.

San Jose and Fremont Attorneys Explain Length of Time Required for Social Security Disability

Lawyers at David Allen & Associates explain that it takes a lot of time to go through the entire process. In fact, our San Jose and Fremont Social Security attorneys point out the SSDI benefits process has been historically slow. In addition, our San Jose and Fremont Social Security lawyers say that, beginning in 2013 the process slowed down even more. The Social Security Administration began taking even more time to consider cases for Social Security disability. Attorneys report that additional people were hired to double check the work of other people working on applications for Social Security. Our San Jose and Fremont disability attorneys report that as a result of these changes it is not uncommon for the entire process to take more than two years. San Jose and Fremont Social Security attorneys explain that the time required varies from state to state. But, our Social Security lawyers say it is never less than 18 months. An experienced Social Security law firm can assist you in moving your case as rapidly as possible. A Social Security law firm cannot, however, completely speed up the process. Unfortunately, our San Jose and Fremont Social Security disability attorneys know that it takes a long time to completely go through it.
