Moreno Valley Social Security Disability Resources

If you have been injured and are in the process of applying for social security disability in Moreno Valley, you will need to provide medical proof of an injury that keeps you from being able to work for at least one full year. Such an injury can qualify you to receive monthly social security disability benefits from the federal government during the time you are unable to work.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses medical and non-medical information to make case-by-case determinations on a worker’s eligibility to receive SSD benefits. You can submit your application either online or at your local SSA field office. Once it has been received, you application will be reviewed for non-medical information before your case file is forwarded to the California Disability Determination Services (DDS) for a thorough medical review. The DDS will use the information provided by your treating physician to determine if your injury qualifies you to receive Moreno Valley social security disability benefits.
