Should You File For SSDI Benefits?

We'll Work Side By Side With You

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are available to disabled people who are insured. To be insured, a person must have worked for a sufficient amount of time, paying Social Security taxes into the system.

Unfortunately, getting SSDI benefits is not a simple task. At the Law Offices of Stuart Barasch, our lawyers are available to help people through this complex process.

Decades Of Experience Devoted To Helping You

You want to know that you have someone on your side who has the experience to help. When you choose our law firm, you can be confident knowing that you can rely on Florida attorney Stuart Barasch. He has built a reputation for getting results in even the most challenging cases, including those that other lawyers have turned down.

Have You Just Started, Or Have You Already Been Denied?

If you are just beginning this process, we will review your case to determine whether you are eligible for SSDI. If you are not, you may still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income. We will assist with the application process to make certain it is done accurately.

We understand that many people file their SSDI benefit claims on their own. Frequently, our representation begins after a denial is received. We know the various stages of appeals, and we know how to succeed at these stages. Do not give up. We can help.

Things To Consider When Applying

  • If you are currently working full time, you may not wish to apply. But if you have been off work for at least 12 continuous months or more due to a medical condition, applying might be to your benefit.
  • You can apply for disability benefits if you have never worked. You may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income benefits, or you may be eligible through a deceased spouse, former spouse or parent.
  • If you are under age 45 you probably should not apply, unless you are severely restricted by your medical conditions.
  • If you have not seen a doctor recently, you probably should not apply until after you have seen a doctor and discussed your condition. If your doctor tells you that you have a progressive medical condition that significantly interferes with your ability to work for more than a year, you may wish to apply. If this medical condition is expected to last less than a year, you might not.
