Social Security Disability is a federal government program that provides disabled people with compensation so that they will be able to have a source of income when they are no longer able work. For many disabled Floridians, social security disability provides the assistance they need to survive. If you or a loved one is applying for social security disability, contact an experienced Florida social security disability lawyer from Colling, Gilbert, Wright & Carter.
There are two different forms of social security:
- Social Security Disability – social security disability provides income and benefits to people who have worked and pad social security taxes in the past, but are now too disabled to gain income.
- Supplemental Security Income – supplemental security income provides disabled individuals with income regardless of whether or not they have been employed in the past.
For both Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income, you must show that your disability will prevent you from gaining income or employment for at least one year.
The application process for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income can be very difficult. We will work with you and help you apply for the social security disability you need. Sometimes, legitimate claimants are denied social security disability because they fail to complete all the appropriate forms or provide convincing evidence of their disability.
If you are denied social security disability, we will help you appeal the decision until you recover the benefits you need. Our social security disability attorneys have experience reviewing medical records and showing that our clients deserve social security benefits.
Once your social security disability has been approved, you will be reimbursed compensation for the social security disability benefits you would have been receiving from the time you first applied for social security disability.
