Understanding SSDI And SSI Eligibility

One of the biggest challenges Acosta & Rose Attorney at Law's potential clients face is eligibility. Simply understanding whether one is eligible for benefits is often difficult for anyone without a legal background and a thorough understanding of the SSDI and SSI process.

Applying For SSDI Or SSI

At the law firm of Acosta & Rose Attorney at Law, I focus on making sure my clients feel comfortable and that they understand that I am a partner in the process, instead of just a lawyer. During a free initial consultation at either of my Florida law offices in Tampa and Clearwater, I let my clients ask questions and provide the answers they need to ensure they fully grasp the steps they will have to take as they pursue benefits.

Once a client chooses me to be his or her attorney, I will walk them through the eligibility requirements that must be met before filing an SSDI or SSI claim. In general, to qualify for SSDI, you must have a work record. Without a work record, you can only file for SSI. You must also have a qualifying medical condition as defined by the Social Security Administration, one that prevents your ability to work.

After determining your eligibility, I then help my client complete his or her application or applications and then follow up by filing any additional information needed by the Social Security Administration.
