Is it a Requirement That I Have Medical Evidence to Prove Your Claim
Yes. If you do not have any medical evidence then your application will be automatically denied. That said, you may have older medical evidence that could be used to support your claim – it all depends on the specifics of your case. The SSA may also require a medical evaluation to get additional evidence in some cases. You can talk to your SSDI attorney in Hawthorne CA to find out if the evidence you have is enough to get you qualified.
How Much Monthly Income Will I Receive from Social Security?
This depends on the type of Social Security disability benefit you are applying for, SSDI or SSI. SSDI is based on your work earnings that had Social Security taxes withheld. The average SSDI benefit is $1,197 and the maximum you can receive is $2,788. Social Security will not calculate this benefit amount unless you are found disabled under Social Security’s rules. In the past, Social Security would send statements with monthly benefit estimates. More recently, Social Security has stopped sending these statements due to budget constraints.
On the other hand, SSI benefit rates are calculated by the Federal Government each year and supplemented by the State of California. SSI benefits are also subject to offsets for other income you may have. For 2019, the maximum SSI benefit in California is $931.72 ($988.23 if disability is due to blindness). When you contact an SSDI attorney in Hawthorne CA, we can help determine which benefits, SSI or SSDI, you may qualify for.
Do I Have Options if My Claim Has Been Denied or is Pending?
In some cases, an SSDI attorney in Hawthorne CA can help you appeal a Social Security denial. Likewise, if you have a case that has been pending for a long time then you may be waiting on a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. That is something you will want the help of an attorney with.
