What is Social Security Disability Insurance?

If you have one or more medical problems that prevent you from performing substantial gainful activity for at least twelve continuous months, you may be entitled to Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits. Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death.

Certain family members of disabled workers also can receive money from Social Security. If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits, contact Derrick Connell today for your free legal consultation.

Why do you need a lawyer?

Hiring a Melbourne, Florida social security disability attorney to handle your case can help ensure the appeals process runs smoothly and that your benefits are recovered.
