Disability benefits for disabled adult children

If you are one of the many parents in Florida who has a child with a disability that is severe enough to preclude their ability to fully provide for themselves, you will want to learn as much as you can about the types of benefits available to you and to your child. Despite your desire to want to take care of your child forever, you will no doubt need to find options for financial support and even day-to-day assistance if your child is expected to outlive you. 

Preparing a SSD application

If you are a resident in Florida who has enjoyed the ability to work for some time and now find yourself unable to work due to a disabling condition or injury, you may understandably be concerned about how you can receive some income to support yourself. There is a program established by the federal government that you pay into through deductions in every paycheck that is designed to be one avenue of giving you a source of income at times like these.

Bill proposes new SSDI program

Many people in Florida who become unable to work and earn an income due to a disabling condition or injury have often looked to Social Security Disability Insurance as a way of helping to provide for themselves and their families. This crucial benefit is run through the Social Security Administration. Some people are even eligible for SSDI and Supplemental Security Income benefits at the same time, depending on their income and other factors.

Can anxiety disorder qualify you for SSD?

Most in West Palm Beach might assume disabling conditions would only be those that either severely inhibit one's physical abilities or are determined to be immediately life-threatening. Missing from that group are mental illnesses that make accomplishing every day tasks difficult. Mental health issues such as anxiety are often not evidenced by apparent physical symptoms, thus many may think that those struggling with them should be able to deal with while staying employed. Yet as one who deals with anxiety, you understand how it can make fulfilling the tasks associated with a job almost impossible. 

How to address a denied SSI claim

If you have become disabled and unable to work in Florida, you may have submitted a claim for disability benefits. One of these types of benefits is Supplemental Security Income and it is available to people who meet the qualifications which include income limits as well as meeting the criteria for being disabled. Unfortunately, not everyone receives an initial approval of their request for these benefits.
