Leading Social Security Disability Florida Attorneys
Far too often, veterans are cast to the wayside, forgotten and dismayed. Far too often, worthy veterans who risked their lives for our freedoms fade into the shadows. Many veterans cannot find work. They cannot integrate. They cannot lead lives that feel normal. Many veterans, simply, are desperate for help.
Without the help of consummate professionals, many veterans may suffer. They may stagnate. They may never receive the benefits they need for the disabilities that have ravaged their lives.
Unfortunately, disability is always possible. Although none of us plan on becoming disabled, it can happen when we least expect it. In fact, a 20-year-old worker has a 25% chance of becoming disabled before the age of full retirement. This statistic alone is disturbing.
However, there is always help.
Veterans who have suffered injuries and illnesses should never despair. There is hope. There is a way that disabled veterans can finally begin to feel better. If you or someone you know is a disabled veteran, the time has come.
It’s time to apply for the benefits you deserve.
When applying for social security disability, claimants have two options. A disabled veteran should research in advance to determine which disability program is right.
Florida Social Security Disability Lawyers can help.
The two programs for social security benefits are similar. However, each program has different criteria and offers benefits for different reasons. These programs include the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program and the Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) program.
Without these benefits, many veterans will struggle. Some, sadly, will even die.
Fortunately, social security benefits are nothing new. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has been delivering these monthly payments for decades. Without this important federal government agency, many veterans would be out of work and out of mind.
Veteran Disability Requirements
When applying for benefits under the SSA, applicants should ensure a clear understanding of the requirements. The total disability must be severe and lasting.
Social Security Administration (SSA) disability benefits are different than Veterans Affairs (VA) disability benefits.
Under the Social Security Administration (SSA), a disability must:
- Have lasted, or be expected to last, for 12 continuous months; or
- Be expected to end in death; and
- Prevent the disabled from engaging in substantial gainful activity (SGA)
Even if a veteran’s disability is obvious and severe, the veteran must prove it. Medical documentation is required. Work information is required. The veteran must show that the disability will not easily go away.
The disability must also prevent the veteran from working most jobs. If a veteran meets or exceeds the substantial gainful activity (SGA) threshold, he or she will be denied.
Lawyers can help significantly. A top social security attorney will recognize exactly how to prove disability.
If you need to appeal an unfavorable decision, your legal representative can pursue additional medical and vocational evidence.
