Compton Social Security Disability

The city of Compton, California has a population of almost 97,000 and is situated in southern Los Angeles County. The business market in Compton is growing, and the retail trade, fast moving consumer goods and financial industries are among the largest sectors f the local economy. Thanks to its proximity to the Long Beach and Los Angeles Ports and the Alameda Corridor, an international waterway trade route, Compton’s economy is also boosted by logistics, warehousing and transportation industrial activities.

Compton is among the communities serviced by the Region 9 District Office of the Social Security Administration in San Francisco. The regional office reviews more than 83,500 new claims each year and handles the distribution of Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income for more than 790,000 people.

SSDI provides income for those who’re unable to work as a result of long-term or complete disability. In order to qualify for SSDI, you must meet the SSA’s disability requirements and have accumulated sufficient work credits throughout the course of your employment over the decade prior to your application for benefits. If you do not meet the work credit requirements for receiving SSDI benefits, you may still be eligible for SSI.

Apply for Compton Social Security Disability Benefits

The Compton disability application process is a long and complicated one, and applicants may go through several rounds of reviews before receiving a final decision on eligibility. The SSA only approves 30.8 percent of initial claims reviewed in San Francisco, leaving all other applicants with no choice but to request a second review. Only 12.1 percent of reconsidered claims are approved.

The majority of people who are initially denied benefits must proceed through the appeals process, which requires their cases are reviewed by an Administrative Law Judge. This is also the reason the San Francisco office has about 62,000 pending SSDI claims on its books at any given time.

The most common reason for denial of Compton Social Security Disability benefit claims is a lack of sufficient medical documentation, or the absence of specific and required medical test results. Hiring a Compton Social Security attorney who is familiar with disability benefits is in your best interest. Doing so early in the disability application process can shorten your wait for a decision and make it more likely you’ll be approved for benefits as well.
