When an individual becomes disabled and can no longer work, they may experience significant financial difficulty. Fortunately the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides disability benefits to those facing similar circumstances. Receiving these benefits, however, is no simple task. For this reason, we recommend that Chino, California residents take advantage of the Social Security Disability attorneys and advocates practicing in their community.

Hiring a Chino Disability Attorney or Advocate
Applying for disability benefits—SSDI and SSI—can be a long and frustrating experience. Submitting a successful claim or navigating the appeals process requires intense preparation and organization. Even the smallest mistakes could potentially impact the outcome of your claim.
A Chino Social Security Disability attorney or advocate can help ensure that your claim is handled correctly. He or she can keep track of important records, dates, and information that you will need to be approved. An attorney or advocate can be the difference between approval and denial.
If you are hesitant about hiring legal help because you cannot afford it, you should know that Social Security Disability lawyers are not paid in the same way as other legal professionals. Social Security Disability attorneys are only paid if their client is awarded benefits. All payment is handled by the SSA and will be deducted from any back pay that you earn and sent directly to the attorney. If you are not eligible for back pay, you will not be required to pay.

A Chino Social Security Disability lawyer will also handle disability claims in the following communities: Ontario, Montclair, Pomona, Claremont, Upland, Diamond Bar, La Verne, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, San Dimas, Norco, Mira Loma, Walnut, Charter Oak, and Yorba Linda.

Chino Social Security Disability Appeal Hearings
If you have already submitted an initial disability application and have been denied, it is important to consult with an attorney or advocate before entering the appeals process. During the appeals proceedings, you will likely have to appear before a judge to answer questions regarding your personal life, your medical condition, your income, and your employment history. This can be extremely nerve-wracking. A legal professional can guide you through the process and keep you calm and collected throughout.
Chino appeal hearings often take place in the Orange hearing office—which is located about 28 miles away from Chino.
If you have already scheduled your appeal hearing, it is likely that you are not working. If you find that your lack of income has made it impossible for you to pay your bills or buy food, you may want to speak to your attorney or advocate about congressional inquiry.
A congressional inquiry takes place when a claimant contacts their local congressman or woman to explain their financial circumstances. If the congressperson agrees that it is an emergency situation, they may be able to intervene with the hearing office on your behalf to have your hearing scheduled sooner. Your representative office location is:
4160 Temescal Canyon Rd.,
Ste 214 Corona, CA 92883
