Many residents of the Modesto area have probably heard stories about how long it takes for the Social Security Administration to finally award disability benefits to a Californian who needs them. Many deserving applicants get denied at the first stages of the process, and this means that they will have to wait months or even years for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. In the interim, the person will have to find other means of supporting himself or herself through a debilitating illness or injury, assuming of course that they live long enough to have a hearing.
Many people come to the United States from other countries for a variety of reasons. Oftentimes, they take up long-term or permanent residence in this country and begin to work jobs and support their families.
It is always sad when a California resident who at one point served her country in one of the branches of the armed services winds up unable to work and in financial hardship as a result.
Many people in and around Modesto, California, may one day find themselves unable to work due to an illness or an injury. Without being able to earn an income, these people will have to turn to other sources for financial support.
