Ventura Social Security Disability Lawyer
Working Toward Getting the Benefits You Need
If you have a long-term or permanent disability that renders you unable to work, you might be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits to get the financial assistance you need to pay for necessities and expenses. Although in some instances the application process is straightforward, the intricacies of submitting your documents could be complex, requiring legal assistance. In other situations, you might believe that you completed everything correctly and demonstrated your eligibility, but received notice that your claim has been denied.
At the Law Offices of Scott Bentley, our attorney can guide you through the process of applying for Social Security Disability benefits, as well as appealing a denial. When you retain our counsel, we will provide clear and honest communication every step of the way as we work toward an outcome focused on your best interests.

Legal Assistance with the Initial Application
The Social Security Administration reviews applications for benefits. Generally, in determining whether or not you are eligible for aid, it will look at the type of medical condition you have and the number of years you worked.
When applying for Social Security Disability benefits, you must include the following:
- Information about your medical condition
- Types of medications you’re taking
- Lab test results
- Medical records
- Income information
You may also be scheduled for an interview with the office to determine your eligibility for benefits. Our Ventura attorney will assist you with completing your application and preparing for your interview, helping ensure that you demonstrate that your condition is one in the Social Security’s list of qualifying medical conditions.
Appealing a Social Security Disability Denial
When deciding whether or not to approve an SSDI claim, the SSA will look at the following factors:
- Your current working status
- The severity of your condition
- The type of medical condition you have (whether or not it is in the SSA’s Blue Book)
- Your ability to do the work you did previously
- Your ability to do any other type of work
Although you might believe that you are eligible for benefits, the SSA could deny your claim. Fortunately, that decision might not be final, meaning you can appeal it. In some circumstances, this means filing a request for reconsideration that starts the review process with another representative. Most likely, you’ll be scheduled for a hearing, which allows you to present support for your claim and demonstrate your qualifications for benefits.
Our attorney will provide sound legal guidance throughout the appeal process. We will gather and organize evidence to help develop a compelling disability case.
