Social Security Disability

Eligibility for SSD Benefits in Tampa, FL

In order to get Social Security Disability benefits, you must have been disabled for a minimum of 5 full months. The payments are initiated at the sixth month of your disability. The payments continue for the period of time that your medical condition continues, if it has not improved, and you cannot work. These benefits may not continue for an indefinite period of time, and each case is evaluated on a one-on-one basis.

During the period that you are receiving benefits, the agency will review your case periodically to see if you continue to qualify. If you improve and you are now able to work, or your medical condition improves, you are responsible for alerting the agency of this change.

Once you have received Social Security Disability benefits for 2 years, you become eligible to receive Medicare benefits. Certain conditions allow you to receive Medicare benefits almost at once. If you are earning any income, even a small amount, you must tell the agency how much you are making and how many hours you are working.

You are able to receive benefits for up to 9 months during a trial work period. It can be extremely difficult to get Social Security Disability benefits, and a large percentage of claims are denied. 

If you feel your claim was denied wrongly, you have the right to appeal the denial, and our legal team can help. Call (813) 851-2286 today!
