When dealing with a serious disability from a physical or mental illness, or a serious physical injury, it can be taxing, painful and stressful. These disabilities qualify you for SSD/SSI benefits. As a result of your disability you are unable to work for 12 months, you will qualify for SSD/SSI benefits. We at Larry K. White, LLC, Attorneys at Law, in Tallahassee, Florida, want to help you get them. In many situations, your initial SSD/SSI claim will be denied.
There are two main types of Social Security Disability benefits:
Social Security Disability benefits (SSD): SSD benefits are for those who have worked previously but have become disabled later in life. There is a work requirement for receiving this type of benefit, but there are no household income restrictions.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI): The disbursement of these benefits to disabled individuals is based on financial need. There is no previous work requirement, but if your household passes a certain income or asset threshold, you will not qualify for SSI.
Applying for these benefits means you must follow very specific guidelines and provide up-to-date information. We will help you determine which type you qualify for, get everything together and ensure what you turn in will give you the best chance for approval.
In many situations, your initial SSD claim will be denied. If that happens, it is more important than ever to get a lawyer on your side. Our attorneys will provide the expertise and experience you need to move forward. There are actions we can take to help you get the benefits you deserve.
