Social Security Disability in Sacramento, California

Last week, this blog reported on the high percentage of Social Security Disability recipients among workers in Alabama. This week's blog discusses a similar issue, although the geography is different: the number of SSD recipients in Sacramento, California.

According to a report in the Sacramento Bee, the number of people receiving SSD benefits in Sacramento region has risen to a new high. The article reported that around 58,000 workers receive SSD benefits, a number that has grown by 70 percent in the last ten years.

The article notes that the high numbers are the result of aging baby-boomers with "myriad physical ailments," people with stress and mental illness that prevents them from working, and a growing number of workers who suffer from chronic back pain.

The author of the piece does some analysis of the places in the area where people are most likely to be on SSD and finds that they live mainly in low-income parts of the city and surrounding suburbs. This is not surprising: Recipients of SSD get an average of $1,150 per month. According to the website rentjungle.com, the average rent in the city and 10 miles around it is $788 per month for a one bedroom apartment and $930 per month for a two bedroom. This does not leave people with many resources for other necessities such as food, clothing and transportation. Living in low-income neighborhoods is one way that disabled workers can keep housing costs affordable.

Whether you live in Sacramento or anywhere else in the United States and territories, it's important to obtain help with your application for Social Security Disability, especially if your initial claim was denied.
