An Overview of Our Services
Our office has only one purpose, and that’s to help people get the Social Security disability benefits they need and are entitled to. The two major areas of focus for our firm are:
- Social Security Disability Insurance: SSDI is in place to help those who suffer from physical or mental limitations that prevent them from being able to work. SSDI can help you to make ends meet and live your life, but there are strict guidelines in place regarding how long you must have been disabled and what disabilities are eligible.
- Supplemental Security Income: SSI payments are a different kind of benefit that you can potentially collect if you are disabled. SSI is in place to supplement other kinds of disability income, but it’s based on the income and assets you currently have, and the process to apply can be tricky.
Dedicated to Helping Those in Need
For decades, Dr. Bill LaTour has been dedicated to helping Californians overcome difficulties in proving their disabilities and obtaining the benefits they need to make ends meet. While applying for Social Security should be easy, it unfortunately is the opposite. Federal law and the regulations regarding SSDI and SSI are quite complex, and sometimes they cross over with state agencies, which can make it even more tricky.
Getting the benefits you need can be complicated and overwhelming, with an incredible amount of obstacles in your way. It’s shocking how many people who truly need these benefits are denied on their first application. In fact, as many as 77% of those who apply for SSDI are denied for either medical or technical reasons at the initial stage. Even after an initial hearing, only 46% of applicants finally get their benefits.
