Orlando Social Security Disability (SSD) Lawyer

We will be there every step of the way for you!

Generally, if a person has a physical or mental disability that causes them to have the inability to do any kind of work for which he/she is capable of and the disability is expected to either last for at least one year or to the unfortunate result of death, then this person will be recognized as disabled for Social Security reasons. Social Security is in place in order to make your life easier and give you assistance when you’re not in the best of health. Most of the time, your paychecks from your employer are taxed with a certain amount going into Social Security as a backup fund for when you fall ill.

Social Security Disability Benefits​

When you apply for Social Security benefits, there are several categories that your application can fall under. Social Security administers separate disability benefits into four programs:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

  • Disabled Adult Child Benefits (DAC)

  • Disabled Widows and Widowers Benefits (DWB)

The medical requirements to prove your disability — as well as the disability determination process — are the same for each of these programs. Should you need assistance in proving your disability when you’re applying, it is best to get in touch with a disability social security attorney in Orlando in order to fill out your form correctly and effectively.

What if I got denied? When do I need an attorney?

Most people are denied after their first social security application. It is very important to appeal that denial within sixty days by filing a "Request for Reconsideration." The Request for Reconsideration will usually also result in a denial, but within sixty days of that second denial, you must request a hearing before an administrative law judge. This is also the point in which you should seek a disability social security attorney.

At the law office of Michael J MacDonald, P.A., our social security disability lawyer can assist you in presenting your case to the judge and getting your request approved.
