The Social Security Administration
Reno Social Security Disability Attorney You Can Trust
The Social Security Administration, or SSA, is a U.S. federal agency responsible for administering disability, retirement, and survivors' benefits to qualified applicants. Workers pay into this system through their earnings and wages and a claimant's benefits are based on those contributions made in their employment history. Other benefits, like Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, are distributed based on the claimant's need.
The SSA as we know it today was established as part of the President's Reorganization Plan of 1946 and was tasked with tremendous responsibility. In short, the SSA provides benefits for individuals who have suffered a disability that restricts them from keeping gainful employment, as well as providing death benefits and retirement social security to millions across the nation. The agency has seen a great influx of social security disability applicants in recent years and this steady supply of new applications, reconsideration, and requests for hearings can result in very long processing times that last many months.
Due to the fact that the SSA is so flooded with disability benefits claims, denial rates are quite high both for first and second-time applicants. The agency can afford to be strict, even unreasonable at times, in their determinations of specific claims because of the sheer number of cases lying in wait. Dealing with the SSA can be tedious, tiring and time-consuming, which is why an educated attorney is your best option in handling your claim with the social security administration without losing your head.
