Bradenton Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides benefits for people who are unable to work because of an injury or illness. These disability benefits can create a crucial safety net for so many who need it, but, unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get the benefits to which you’re entitled.
Applying for SSDI can be a complicated process that often ends in denial, regardless of eligibility. If you have been denied SSDI benefits, it is important not to give up. And, know that you do not have to bear this burden alone. Hiring an attorney can help you fight for the benefits that you are owed.
An experienced SSDI lawyer is well-versed in the complexities of disability claims and can help guide you through the process. It’s imperative that you know that an initial denial does not mean that your opportunity to obtain disability benefits has been lost.
At Morgan & Morgan, our dedicated Social Security Disability attorneys have helped thousands of clients like you qualify for benefits that were previously denied. For over 30 years, our attorneys have been fighting For The People and have recovered, to date, over $15 billion for our clients.

Am I Eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits?
To qualify for SSDI benefits, you must have what the Social Security Administration calls a “total disability.” This means that you cannot work because of a medical condition that’s expected to last at least one year or result in death.
The SSA generally recognizes the following disabilities and conditions: musculoskeletal system disorders, immune system disorders, digestive tract problems, mental disorders, neurological disorders, cancer, hearing loss, vision loss, and speech loss.
In addition to meeting the SSA’s definition of disability, you must also meet its earnings and work history requirements to be eligible for benefits. In other words, you must have worked long enough to qualify for disability benefits. The years of work needed will depend on at what age you became disabled.
Do I Need an Attorney?
Because the SSDI process can be complex and confusing, an attorney may give your best chance at obtaining benefits, particularly if your initial disability claim has been denied despite your eligibility.
An attorney can help determine if you have been wrongly denied benefits. There are a number of administrative and procedural reasons why the SSA could deny an otherwise valid claim.
If your disability claim has been denied, you will need to appeal the decision. An attorney can prepare an appeal on your behalf, as well as represent you at an appeals hearing and present evidence in support of your claim to an administrative law judge.
