SSDI Is Something You've Earned, Not A Handout

Throughout your career, you have likely made payments toward Social Security just in case you faced a disability down the road. These payments (called FICA taxes) are automatically removed from most paychecks. So long as you've paid into the program, you are entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits for a qualifying disability.

Whether you want help completing the paperwork for an application or need assistance fighting a denied claim, we can help. Even if you don't qualify for SSDI benefits, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. We can explain the details in a free consultation.

How To Apply For Benefits In Florida

You should file for disability benefits as soon as your doctor says you won't be able to work for at least a year. It's not difficult to apply — you can do so online — but we highly recommend that you consult with us prior to beginning the application process. The smallest mistake can lead to a denied claim.

We can assist you in completing and filing the paperwork, as well as gather all of the documents needed to make a convincing claim.
