Obtaining and retaining Social Security disability benefits can be an ongoing battle. The Social Security Administration is not only stingy in granting initial SSD claims, but they are constantly reevaluating claims to see if disabled individuals remain disabled and unable to work. As we discussed last week on the blog, this means that you may need to be prepared to present medical evidence that your medical condition is recurrent, chronic, and, if you are facing a reevaluation, unimproved. Additionally, you’ll need to convince the SSA that your condition has rendered you unable to engage in substantially gainful employment.
Floridians who suffer from a disability and need to obtain or keep their SSD benefits need to know what the SSA is looking for when assessing their initial claim or when reevaluating their medical condition. If you don’t know how to appease the SSA, then you put yourself at risk of being denied or losing your existing benefits. Therefore, you might want to consider seeking the assistance of an experienced legal team who can aggressively advocate on your behalf.
At The Lawrence Law Firm, our team of dedicated legal professionals can help disabled individuals prepare their initial claim, appeals, and reevaluations. Attorney Chad Lawrence is a former SSA claims adjudicator, so he knows the disability claims process and how to successfully navigate it.

If you are seeking SSD benefits for your disability, then you likely need those benefits to ensure your financial well-being. A sudden denial of your claim, or a sudden reduction or cessation of your benefits, can throw your finances into a tailspin. With so much on the line, you owe it to yourself to give yourself the best possible chance of success in whatever SSD endeavor you are undertaking. Thus, you should consider whether the assistance of a skilled Florida attorney will help you reach your ultimate goal.
