Social Security Disability Benefits

What To Know About Social Security Disability (SSD) Benefits

Many people know that the federal government provides disability benefits through the Social Security Administration. These benefits can take the form of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or SSD), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), childhood disability benefits or survivor death benefits. In some cases these benefits can overlap or be obtained along with separate benefits for military veterans from the Veterans’ Administration (VA).


In theory, a person shouldn’t need a lawyer to get benefits to which he or she is entitled by federal law. In reality, having an experienced lawyer on your side can change the outcome of your Social Security case.

Securing Benefits For Those Who Qualify

At The Lawrence Law Firm, based in Kissimmee, Tampa and Orlando, Florida, we help our clients secure the benefits they qualify for. We work hard to win claims and appeals related to:

  • Permanent SSDI disability benefits for adults who have worked for years but have become unable to work due to a physical or mental impairment
  • Closed-period benefits — provided for a specific period of time — for injured people who are awaiting a settlement (related to a car accident case or another type of serious accident) or who anticipate being able to return to work in the future, but not within one year
  • SSI benefits for disabled people who meet special income requirements

Every case is different. We can provide a free case evaluation based on your unique circumstances.
