Long Beach, CA Social Security Disability Lawyers

We Are Here To Help You

In the United States, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) protects people who cannot work because of severe physical or mental impairments. It serves as a safety net, providing benefits to people who need help making ends meet.

Social Security Disability is complicated, and many people feel overwhelmed by the SSDI process. They are not sure if they are eligible for benefits or how to apply.

West Coast Disability Legal Center: Experience The Difference

It is common for other firms to only provide their clients with either non-attorney "representatives," or with inexperienced lawyers fresh out of law school. These "representatives" sit with you at your disability hearing, but they often lack the training they need to identify and solve legal problems and to cross-examine Social Security's expert witnesses.

West Coast Disability Legal Center, only uses experienced SSDI attorneys. Attorneys Megan F. DiTolla and Cari M. Schwartz have represented more than 2,000 people seeking Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. We do more than just sit with you at your disability hearing. We advise you every step of the way. We identify any problems and provide you with experienced legal advice.

Also referred to as SSDI or Title II benefits, Social Security Disability Insurance benefits were created for people who cannot work because severe physical or mental impairments limit their abilities. To be eligible for benefits, the impairment(s) must be expected to last at least one year or result in death.

The SSDI benefit amount a person receives depends on several factors, including:

  • What was paid into the Social Security system
  • The number of quarters earned
  • How long ago the disability started
  • When the person applied for benefits

Unlike many firms, we also understand how long-term disability (LTD) and veterans service-connected claims affect your SSDI benefits. Our knowledge of these and other federal and private disability programs allows us to protect your interests and point you in the right direction regarding other potential disability programs that may be helpful to you and your family. To ensure you are pursuing the proper disability programs, you need an experienced attorney from West Coast Disability Legal Center, on your side.
