Unfortunately, there are millions of Americans throughout the country, whether it’s in the Orlando and Tampa areas in Florida, or elsewhere throughout the country, who suffer debilitating injuries or illnesses that prevent them from working. Many of these victims struggle to pay bills or medical expenses. And many are not aware that they may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.
If you have worked at least five of the last ten years, you have had money taken out of your paycheck in the form of FICA taxes. These deductions are used to fund Social Security benefits. Even if you have not had taxes taken, you may be eligible if you are at a certain low income level. The same is applicable for child disability benefits, if you fall below a certain income level.
It is important for claimants to understand the laws and their rights when it comes to Social Security Disability benefits. For people who are already suffering from an injury or illness, it is important to obtain the help they need to survive. And that is where our firm can help.
