Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld Relentlessly Protecting California Workers' Rights Since 1956

Social Security Disability Attorney Fresno, CA 

In Need of a Fresno Social Security Disability Lawyer?

The State of California has several government-sponsored programs that offer financial compensation to people injured or disabled in accidents, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and state workers’ compensation.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) supplements the income of permanently disabled individuals who make less than the designated amount each month. The SSA could determine that you are “disabled” when your medical condition prevents you from performing basic tasks at work for at least a year.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is funded by the Social Security tax fund. Those who qualify for SSDI in Fresno, CA should have enough credits in their job history to qualify for monthly payments.

Applicants applying for SSDI must have paid Social Security taxes on their wages for a certain amount of time to qualify for benefits. Younger applicants under the age of 22 can use their parents’ work credits with their application.

Your injury is not your fault, but the process of filing or appealing your claim can be complex if you do not have the right support by your side. Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld has the experience and track record of success to ensure that your application goes smoothly and reaches approval.

We understand that the path to getting your claim approved for Social Security benefits can be long and arduous. At Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld, we will be with you every step of the way, advocating for your best interests and keeping up with all of the latest developments in workers’ comp and Social Security Disability law.
