When you have a serious injury that qualifies for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA), you may be able to obtain the money you need to take care of yourself and your loved ones. An experienced Lake Mary Social Security Disability attorney at the Law Offices of Shea A. Fugate, P.A. can speak with you today about your situation.
What is Social Security Disability in Lake Mary?
The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program is a program through the SSA that provides Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Sometimes the terms SSDI benefits and SSD benefits are used interchangeably. However, it is important to distinguish between benefits provided through the SSDI program (SSD benefits) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. These are two completely different programs.
The SSDI program provides benefits to people with disabilities who have worked a sufficient amount of time to qualify, and who have an injury or illness that qualifies as a disability according to the SSA. Not all medical conditions that a doctor identifies as disabling will qualify a person for SSD benefits, so it is important to speak with a lawyer about filing a benefits claim.
