Understanding Social Security Disability
If you or a loved one has suffered a disabling injury or disease, you may be eligible for disability benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. Talk to an attorney at Canlas Law Group, APLC, in Cerritos, California, for help with your initial claim or appeal.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides assistance in the form of Social Security Disability/Supplemental Security Income (SSD/SSI) benefits; however, the application process is notoriously difficult. The majority of applications are denied the first and second times. You could wait months or years for a disability hearing. What will you do if your claim is denied again?

What Does SSDI Have To Do With Workers’ Compensation Claims?
California workers’ compensation is a significant part of our practice. In many cases of permanent work-related disability, you will be eligible to apply for Social Security disability benefits as well.
Under Social Security disability rules, you cannot begin receiving benefits until you can prove you have been unable to work in any capacity for 12 consecutive months. But that does not mean you have to wait to file. When we represent you on your workers’ compensation claim, we can also assist you in filing for SSDI benefits as soon as we determine your eligibility.
