When Does The Ssa Decide To Cease Disability Benefits

If you’ve sustained a disabling injury and you can’t work, or if you became disabled over time because of some underlying medical condition – before you fill out any forms or file any applications – speak right away with an experienced Los Angeles disability benefits attorney. Obtaining disability benefits through either workers’ compensation or Social Security is always a lengthy and complicated procedure with plenty of opportunities for mistakes, misunderstandings, and unnecessary delays. Let a knowledgeable disability benefits lawyer guide you through the process. In fact, you should put a disability benefits attorney on the case as early as possible. A good disability benefits lawyer can review all of your paperwork and help you avoid unnecessary delays. Many applicants select an attorney only after months of trying and failing to obtain benefits. Here are several other recommendations for seeking disability benefits in southern California:

  • Apply for benefits as soon as you know that you will be disabled.
  • Know the deadlines and don’t miss them.
  • Follow your doctor’s orders. Don’t miss any medical appointments.
  • Don’t take no for an answer. File an appeal promptly.
  • If you miss an appeal deadline, re-apply immediately.

If you already receive Social Security disability benefits, there is no rule against simultaneously receiving benefits from the Veterans Administration, workers’ compensation, or private insurance programs. Working with an experienced disability benefits attorney significantly heightens the likelihood that you will receive worker’s compensation or Social Security disability payments. It can be a lengthy process, but a good disability lawyer can guide you through every step of the application procedure so that you can begin receiving your disability payments as quickly as possible. If you are disabled in southern California – now or in the future – and you need to obtain workers’ compensation or Social Security benefits, speak immediately to an experienced Los Angeles disability benefits attorney.
