Escondido, California, which is located in north of San Diego, reported a population of about 143,900 in the 2010 census. Education and healthcare are the largest economic sectors in Escondido, though manufacturing, retail, construction and administrative and professional employment are instrumental in the community as well.
The city of Escondido is serviced by the Region 9 office of the Social Security Administration (SSA), which is physically based in San Francisco. The regional office has about 23,400 pending claims at any given time and distributes payments of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to more than 780,000 beneficiaries.
Individuals who receive SSDI benefits are disabled for a period of a year or more and unable to work as a result. In order to qualify for disability, you must meet the SSA’s guidelines both in terms of disability and work credits. Work credits are achieved through payroll deduction contributions to SSDI. If you don’t have the work credits necessary to receive disability benefits, you may still be eligible for SSI.
Apply for Escondido Social Security Disability Benefits
The application, review and appeals processes for Escondido Social Security disability benefits are long and complicated. Having help from an Escondido disability lawyer when filing your claim for benefits can increase the chances you’ll be found eligible and can result in a quicker decision as well. The SSA Region 9 office only approves about 30 percent of the initial applications it reviews. All other applicants must go through a reconsideration process and ultimately only about 12 percent are found eligible after the second review. If denied benefits again, applicants must file an appeal, which will send their claim before an administrative law judge for a final determination on eligibility.
The majority of SSD benefit claims which are denied don’t contain adequate medical documentation to fulfill the SSA’s requirements. An Escondido Social Security Disability attorney can review your application, help you get the medical care required, ensure all documentation is present in your disability file which is required, and assist you through all stages of the application and review process for SSD. If needed, your Escondido Social Security Disability lawyer can help you prepare for testifying and can argue your appeal in front of the administrative law judge as well.
