Los Angeles County Disability Benefits Attorney
Social Security was set up during the Great Depression to provide a measure of security for people who worked hard all of their lives. It's more than a retirement program that we fund through payroll contributions. Social Security benefits are available to people of all ages who have a physical disability or mental health issue that prevents them from earning a living.
Financial benefits through the Social Security Administration come in two forms: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Recipients of SSDI also receive health insurance in the form of Medicare. SSI recipients receive health insurance in the form of MediCal.
An important first step to receiving benefits is filing an application. You can apply in person at your local Social Security Administration office or online. At the Law Office of Jerry Persky, our lawyers represent people at any stage of the Social Security Disability application process: initial application for benefits, appeal of a denied claim, or dealing with an overpayment or cessation of benefits.
