One concern many people have when they are preparing to file for SSI/SSD disability benefits is whether their condition qualifies with the SSA. They may know relatives, friends, or coworkers who had the same condition that they have and were denied benefits when they filed their claim with Social Security. They may fear that they could have their claim for benefits turned down too. Actually benefits have been approved for most conditions, however not for every one with the condition.
The truth is that in order to qualify you must prove that your condition prevents you from working for at least twelve months. Therefore, it is not so much the actual condition, but how the condition affects you. The SSA may feel that although you cannot work your current job you could retrain and work another position that has fewer physical demands and less stress. The process can quickly become complicated, which is why many people today consult with a disability social security lawyer before filing their SSDI or SSI application for benefits. The disability attorney can review their medical and occupational history and help them file a successful claim for disability benefits.
Walnut Creek, California Disability Benefits
The region that is now Walnut Creek was first lived in by bands of the Native American Bay Miwok and Bolbones Tribes and later was part of four different Mexican land grants. The main waterway was named Arroyo de los Nueces which means Walnut Creek in English. The name comes from the California Walnut trees which grew throughout the valley. The town of Walnut Creek was originally known as The Corners because it was the site where the roads from the properties of Lafayette and Pacheco met. It was changed to its current name in 1862 when a post office was established. A year later the Albert Sherburne store was built and is still standing as the oldest commercial building in town. In 1891 the Southern Pacific Railroad came to Walnut Creek opening up new markets and linking the town with other cities in the county. Walnut Creek was incorporated in 1942.
Today Walnut Creek is a commercial and transportation hub for the region. It has easy access to the San Francisco Bay area as well as to Sacramento and San Jose. This access opens up all kinds of business and employment opportunities to the residents of Walnut Creek and also Concord, Danville and Pleasant Hill. There are many commercial enterprises in the city including business centers, shopping districts and retail shops. Another new venture was the Regional Center for the Arts which opened in 1990 and has hosted many famous performers. The center consists of several theaters and provides unique and creative jobs to the region. But some residents are too ill to handle the stress and demands of a fulltime career. There are disability social security lawyers in the region who specialize in helping people file SSDI applications and claims. These attorneys can help you get approved for Social Security disability benefits.
