Understanding SSD back pay

Californians who are approved for Social Security Disability benefits will receive back pay of their monthly benefits that date back to the date that they were entitled to receive them. There are several factors that affect when the date of first entitlement is.

Past work and Social Security Disability

When people with disabilities in California or elsewhere in the United States file applications for Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, the examiner who reviews the application uses a series of steps in order to evaluate the claim and the applicant's current status. The applicant's medical records are used in order to determine their physical and mental capabilities and develop what is known as a rating for residual functional capacity, or RFC.

Disability depends on multiple factors

Social Security disability benefits are available to California residents who have physical or mental disabilities or a combination of disabilities that leave them unable to work for at least a year. Administrators, and in many cases, an administrative law judge, consider work history, vocational capacity and relevant medical information when deciding whether to approve or deny claims.

Injuries you might suffer as an agricultural worker

Working in agriculture in the Yolo County area can be a very dangerous job. Every year, thousands of farmworkers across the United States suffer serious injuries and sometimes even death due to work-related accidents. In fact, agriculture is one of the most dangerous industries you can work in. This is because farmworkers face the same kind of hazardous conditions as people in other industries who work with heavy machinery and perform intense physical labor.

Dealing with a late appeal for SSD benefits

Some California residents may find the Social Security Disability application process to be lengthy and cumbersome. Many people who eventually go on to successfully receive SSD benefits first must go through an appeal process after an initial denial. Every disability claim decision carries a 60-day appeal period during which the applicant can appeal the denial of benefits.
