Rialto is among the communities serviced by the Region 9 district office of the Social Security Administration (SSA) in San Francisco. The San Francisco office reviews more than 83,500 new claims annually and additionally processes distributions of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for more than 790,000 individuals.
SSDI provides income for disabled workers suffering from long-term or complete disability. 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 SSD benefits, you may still be eligible for SSI.
Apply for Rialto Social Security Disability Benefits
The Rialto disability application process is a long and complicated one, with most applicants going through two reviews and an appeal before receiving a final determination on their eligibility. The SSA only approves about 31 percent of initial claims reviewed by the regional office in the San Francisco, leaving all other applicants to request a second review of their applications.
Many also need to file an appeal after being denied benefits a second time, as only about 12 percent of reconsidered claims are approved. Appeals are adjudicated by an administrative law judge who makes the final ruling on eligibility for SSDI.
The most common reason for denial of Rialto Social Security Disability benefit claims is a lack of sufficient medical documentation. The absence of specific and required medical test results also plays a part in denials. Hiring a Rialto Social Security disability attorney is in your best interest. Hiring legal help early in the disability application process can shorten your wait for a decision and make it more likely you’ll be approved for benefits.
