It is a sad fact that some Stockton, California residents will never recover fully from their workplace injuries. When this happens, workers are entitled to receive an additional workers' compensation benefit in order to compensate them for their ongoing inability to do the work they used to before their injury.
After a workplace injury, an injured Stockton, California, employee may need help with medical bills and may also need some income to supplement his or her time off of work. This is what California's no fault workers' compensation is for, and it is designed to get benefits to injured employees quickly and, hopefully, with minimal hassle.
Compared to the sheen of neighboring communities in the tech industry boom, Stockton is a blue collar town. As such, local employees are aware of the dangers that come with thankless jobs like industrial labor, factory work and construction. These jobs shape the culture of our community in obvious ways. But, is there something or someone unseen among this work?
A previous post on this blog discussed the income eligibility requirements that Stockton, California, residents must meet in order to qualify for Supplemental Security Income, or SSI. That post also mentioned that a person who wants SSI also has to have a limited amount of assets, even if they are not working and do not make any income.
