Suffering from a disabling condition can rob you of your ability to provide for yourself and your family. Fortunately, residents of Highlands County, Florida who are not able to work due to a disability have options. You may be eligible for disability benefits administered through the United States Social Security Administration (SSA) depending on your disability, income, and work history. In the alternative, you may be eligible for disability benefits depending on your disability and need, regardless of your income and work history. Such benefits can be a necessary lifeline.
Unfortunately, if you are disabled and no longer able to work, the SSA will not automatically grant you benefits simply because you or your doctor states that you are disabled and can no longer work. Instead, you must follow specific SSA rules and processes before the SSA will consider your disability claim and determine you are eligible for benefits.
Highlands County, Florida residents applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits from the SSA may find the process confusing and complicated. As evidence of the confusing nature of the system, the majority of disability applications are initially denied. However, you should know that many applicants who were initially denied benefits ultimately prevail and obtain benefits as a result of seeking a disability appeal. So you should not be discouraged or give up if your initial application is, or has been, denied.
