Social Security Disability in Anaheim

Receiving Disability Insurance in Anaheim, California

Social Security Disability Insurance in Anaheim (SSDI) is available to disabled workers who are unable to perform substantial gainful activity (SGA) due to a severe mental or physical health condition which does not allow them to work for at least 12 continuous months.

Social Security Disability Insurance in Anaheim is only awarded to disabled claimants if they have paid employment taxes and have earned 20-40 work credits over the course of their employment working jobs that are “covered” by Social Security. The amount of work credits needed to be insured will vary by age at the time of disability. Most full-time workers in Anaheim can earn 4 work credits per year.
