Fall River, Massachusetts has over 88,000 residents located within its 39 square miles. The Fall River social security office is located at 400 North Main Street. In 2010, more than 1.2 million Massachusetts residents received more than $1.2 million in social security disability benefits. Social security disability benefits are administered based upon an applicant’s work history and accrual of work credits.

The Office of Economic Development has continued to expand Fall River’s workforce by securing new businesses and grant money.
Massachusetts Residents Vote “Yes” On Referendum About Social Security Disability Benefits
Social security benefits were an especially important issue in the 2012 election for Massachusetts residents. On the Massachusetts ballot, the state included a referendum titled “Budget For All,” which instructs its Representatives and Senators to support acts that “prevent cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Veterans benefits.” The referendum on federal budget priorities passed by a ratio of three to one. Additionally, it reflects the importance of social security disability benefits to those who receive them. The referendum is good news for the Social Security Administration (SSA) because the SSA is requesting an increase of over $300 million for its 2013 budget.
The SSA has sought to administer benefits to as many eligible applicants by reducing costs through a reduction in the number employees, work hours, and paper mail. The SSA has increased the number of social security disability beneficiaries over the years from over 500,000 in 1960 to 9.8 million in 2012. While the SSA has increased the number beneficiaries, many disabled applicants are denied benefits despite being qualified. d’Oliveira & Associates has years of experience helping qualified Rhode Island and Massachusetts residents obtain social security disability benefits.
