Suffering a physical or mental disability could affect the lives of individuals and families. The impact of these disabilities could also prevent them form working. Our firm understands the importance of taking action and seeking Social Security disability for these matters. Obtaining these benefits could allow individuals and families in Florida to move forward and past the incidents that caused these disabilities and provide them with the opportunity to life their life without the burdens the disability has caused them.
Depending on the situation, benefits could be sought for the disability suffered by the individual. Furthermore, the details of the individual are also considered when filing for this benefit. For example, if the individual has worked five of the past 10 years, and had FICA taxes taken out of their paycheck, they could be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance if they are currently disabled from working.
Moreover, even if an individual has not paid FICA taxes, they could still qualify for supplemental security income. This occurs when their income falls below a certain level and can no longer work due to disability. No matter what type of Social Security disability claim an individual seeks to file, they should understand their rights regarding the process.
It is important to understand how their disability qualifies them for this benefit, and our attorneys are well versed on all the types of diseases and conditions that qualify a disabled individual for these benefits. Moreover, our firm understands that in some situations, claims are denied. It is important to know that individuals have options and rights in these situations, and an appeal could be made.
Filing for Social Security disability could be a complex and lengthy process, but that should not prevent individuals from filing a claim for this benefit. Whether you are seeking to file a claim, were denied social security or are seeking assistance in the process, our law firm's Social Security overview could provide insight. This also ensures individuals are aware of their rights and what options are available to them.
