The Social Security Administration (SSA) makes case-by-case determinations using both medical and non-medical information. Once your application is received in the local SSA field office, the non-medical information is reviewed then your case file is forwarded to the federally-funded Disability Determination Services (DDS) office for a thorough medical review.

The U.S. Social Security Administration reports that 31% of the initial disability claims filed in the state of California are awarded. If there is sufficient medical evidence in your case file to support your disability claim, the DDS may recommend that your Fremont social security disability case be awarded. In the event you file for benefits and your claim is denied you can appeal the decision and if necessary, present further documentation of your disability. If your appeal is also denied, your case can be heard by an administration law judge (ALJ) at the Oakland hearing office. At the hearing level, Fremont social security disability claims that are heard by an ALJ are awarded 53.4% of the time.
