California Department of Social Services Announces Improved Access to Disability Payments to Homeless Individuals
Date:2/5/2008

red by DDSD in partnership with the San Francisco Regional Social Security Administration Office and local SSA Offices in Sacramento, Chico, Santa Maria, San Jose, University Village, San Diego, Victorville, San Francisco, Watts, Compton and Santa Ana. Local initiatives were first established at DDSD's Los Angeles and Oakland offices in partnership with the local Social Security offices in Compton, Watts and San Francisco.

"Our employees work in close partnership with the SSA staff to provide quick, accurate service to Californians," said Joe Carlin, Deputy Director of the DDSD. "SSA's implementation of a national electronic business process and our shared goals for service make cooperative projects like this possible."

The division spends nearly $35 million annually for consultative medical examinations and processes more than 330,000 disability cases each year.

Benefits of the CHOICE Pilot:

-- Expedites homeless benefits through a streamlined, time-saving application process.

-- Homeless applicants receive immediate authorization for a free consultative medical examination upon meeting with SSA claims representatives.

-- Assures homeless applicants can receive proper notification of benefits or eligibility determination.

-- Enhances the evidence available to make informed determinations.

-- Allows DDSD to secure essential medical evidence to help make a disability determination.

CDSS continues to work with advocacy groups, county welfare and mental health departments, community centers and Social Security field offices to offer support and improve service to the homeless population.
