Defining elements of social security disability

The term "disabled" is heavy. It has the potential to bring with it a feeling of helplessness and frustration, especially if the person now wearing the label was at one time a dedicated, hard-working employee. Whether a Florida worker becomes disabled by an accident at work or through a crippling medical diagnosis, he or she may feel overwhelmed trying to wade through the process of applying for assistance.

Are mental health conditions eligible for SS disability?

As you are aware, mental conditions can significantly affect your ability to work and your quality of life. However, getting other people to understand this complex issue can be frustrating and sometimes nearly impossible. Employers, doctors, family, friends and others in Florida may be unwilling or unable to understand that an invisible illness can be just as devastating and debilitating as one you can see.

Do I get extra disability payments for family members?

Florida residents who qualify for social security benefits might also be able to collect benefits for eligible family members. This does not mean that, were you to become disabled, you would be entitled to a large amount of money from the social security office. Rather, it would be a way a way to lessen the burden placed on your family if one or more members were to qualify for disability.

How does the government decide if you qualify for SSDI?

Florida's large population of seniors means that many of the state's residents are likely to be concerned about applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) if they should become disabled. According to the Social Security Administration (SSA) website, the government will determine whether you qualify for SSDI through specific criteria, including work history and the nature of your disability.
