Social Security Programs
We have represented hundreds of claimants across South Florida throughout their application process. Over the past several years we have developed a program that makes the Social Security Disability process less confusing and frustrating for you. We file the appeals directly from our office with the government and follow up with the Social Security Administration to make sure that your claim is getting the attention it deserves. In a majority of claims we work with your doctors in order to make sure that Social Security has the most updated medical evidence to support your disability claim. We provide your doctors with questionnaires to help analyze your disabilities and explain your work related limitations. Let us develop your claim and provide you with the service you deserve.
The United States government has developed Social Security programs to help people receive funds for retirement, disability, and medical attention. There are two Social Security programs that attempt to provide low income aged, blind and disabled persons with monthly benefits. Including people living among the fifty states, District of Columbia and the Northern Mariana Islands.
The application process for both Social Security Programs, Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), is extremely difficult and very discouraging. The application process requires the disabled individual to do an initial application, which can be time consuming and confusing. As a matter of fact, a majority of people are denied at the initial application requiring them to appeal that decision. Then most likely being denied again at the reconsideration of that appeal before getting the opportunity to go before an Administrative Law Judge. Complex medical evidence is analyzed throughout the process and several multi-page forms are repeatedly sent to the claimant to make the best assessment of your case.
The first program you can apply for is Social Security Disability (SSD), also known as Title II benefits. This program compensates disabled people who have contributed to the Social Security Fund up to the age of 65. To be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) you must earn 20 work credits over a period of 10 years. Work credits are generated when money is taken out of your paycheck to pay for Social Security retirement, disability, and Medicare. This program is not a welfare program; if you have earned enough work credits and paid the government money out of your paycheck, then you have earned the right to apply for this program.
The second program, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), also known as Title XVI benefits, is a federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues often confused with Social Security taxes. This program allows compensation for disabled people who have not contributed enough money to the Social Security Fund and for individuals that do not have the financial resources to provide for themselves. These funds are estimated by the applicants income, martial status and living arrangements.
To be eligible for benefits an individual can be physically or mentally disabled or a combination of both. Some disabilities include: chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, heart problems, asthma, arthritis, fibromialgia, back and joint pain, liver disease, diabetes mellitus, depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, and many more. You must be considered disabled by the Social Security Department. They will consider you disabled under Social Security rules if you can not work at your current job due to your medical conditions and if they decide you can not work elsewhere due to your conditions as well. Your disability must also be expected to last for at least one year or a or longer or so severe it results in death.
