You have worked hard all your life. Now you face a physical injury or mental disability that keeps you from working. You still have bills to pay, but your condition prevents you from working. What are your options for obtaining assistance?
You may choose to apply to the United States Social Security Administration (SSA) for Social Security disability insurance benefits. If you make that decision, contact the Miami workers' compensation lawyers at the law firm of Touby, Chait & Sicking.
Qualifying For Social Security Disability Benefits
Federal law allows you to receive benefits if you can show that you have worked but now have a disability that prevents you from substantial gainful employment. You may receive benefits as long as you remain disabled.
If you apply for Social Security disability benefits, your application may be denied. The decision for granting benefits is made by an SSA employee who determines whether or not you qualify, then examines your medical records and interprets how Social Security regulations apply to your specific circumstances.
Answering The SSA's Questions
If you are denied, you may enter a long and complicated process of appeals.
