Golden Gate Disability Attorney-Florida

Many Americans disabilities significantly impact their ability to work. Many cannot stay working due to pain, loss of function or an illness that prevents gainful employment. SSDI is a federal insurance plan created by President Roosevelt in 1935 as a safety net for workers. The plan is funded by Americans who paid into the system via payroll taxes. Social Security Disability benefits are provided either temporarily or permanently.

Do I Qualify for Disability Payments?

The qualifications are set by the Social Security Administration, (SSA), and defined by rules and laws set forth by the American Government. From the SSA Website:

The definition of disability under Social Security is different than other programs. Social Security pays only for total disability. No benefits are payable for partial disability or for short-term disability.

“Disability” under Social Security is based on your inability to work. We consider you disabled under Social Security rules if:

  • You cannot do work that you did before;
  • We decide that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.

This is a strict definition of disability. Social Security program rules assume that working families have access to other resources to provide support during periods of short-term disabilities, including workers’ compensation, insurance, savings and investments. Speak to a Golden Gate Attorney now: 239.677.2480.
