Sacramento Social Security Disability Attorney
At the Sacramento law firm of Mastagni Holstedt, A Professional Corporation, our Social Security Disability lawyers work to protect income for injured workers by providing representation throughout California in federal Social Security Disability Insurance and State Disability Insurance appeals. We handle appeals at Social Security district offices and hearings before administrative law judges.
Federal Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits
Injured workers who suffer permanent injuries and disabilities may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits from the U.S. Social Security Administration. Applicants must be able to provide medical certification of their disabilities, including documentation certifying that the employee’s physical or mental disability prevents him or her from performing gainful work for a period of at least 12 months, or will eventually cause death. An injured worker’s dependents may also qualify for SSDI benefits, and workers who have been receiving SSDI benefits for 24 months also become eligible to receive Medicare benefits.
Most claims for SSDI benefits are denied at the initial filing, making it critical that you contact a Sacramento employment attorney as soon as possible to discuss your claim.
California State Disability Insurance Benefits
Private sector employees who suffer work-related injuries and disabilities may be entitled to receive California State Disability Insurance (SDI) benefits under certain circumstances. These benefits are usually paid to employees who suffer injuries that are not work-related. However, employees with work-related injuries may be entitled to SDI benefits in some situations, such as where an employer rejects the employee’s workers’ compensation claim or where an employee suffers permanent injuries and is unable to return to work. The experienced Social Security Disability attorneys of Mastagni Holstedt, A Professional Corporation can help you determine whether you are entitled to receive SDI benefits. To learn more about work-related injury claims, see our workers’ compensation page.
