California State Disability Insurance, Social Security Disability Qualification

Recommended Posts

My mother has type II diabetes for more than 6 years now and about 2 years ago she got injured on work falling down on her hand and injuring both her hand and shoulder. She was approved as partially disabled and received workers compensation. Since her injury at work, she is in chronic pain and take heavy doses of pain killers every day. About 6 months ago she was also put on daily insulin injections because her diabetes is out of control. Please advice if my mother qualifies for disability help from the state of California or Social Security disability?

 

Thanks

California disability is only temporary and short-term for non-work related injuries.  Further, she would disqualified because she hasn't worked in over two years, is unable to work or actively seek work at this time.  She may be eligible for social security disability particularly if she will be unable to work for an extended period of time.  She can call 1-800-772-1213 to make an appointment at her local social security office to apply or to schedule an appointment to make a claim over the phone.  Here's a link to their informational pamplet-->  https://www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/EN-05-10029.pdf

Meanwhile, your post is vague about hand-shoulder issue and it sounds like she needs to consult specialists (relatedly, a w/c atty might be required so as to force responsible employer/ w/c insurer to cover).

Having to use insulin to control diabetes is pretty common, and diet/exercise change can help eliminate need for insulin.
