Our nation’s Social Security disability program is designed to help people who are unable to support themselves financially due to physical or mental disabilities. However, many people in true need of Social Security disability benefits find it extremely difficult to have their applications accepted by the Social Security Administration.
In fact, less than 30 percent of all initial Social Security disability applications are approved in the state of Florida.

It is best to seek the support and guidance of an experienced attorney from Catania and Catania to help you through this process and increase your likelihood of receiving an approval.

Social Security disability is available in two different forms. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a program designed to pay cash benefits on a monthly basis for a disability proven to last 12 months or longer. This means you must have worked in jobs covered by Social Security for a certain length of time and you must have a medical condition that meets Social Security’s definition of disability.
The second category of Social Security disability benefits is known as Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Instead of being based upon work history and medical condition, SSI is based on financial need. The program helps people who are disabled, blind, or aged 65 or older and have little to no income by providing cash benefits to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter.
At Catania and Catania in St. Petersburg, our Social Security experts are here to help you navigate the complex legal system to successfully apply for SSDI or SSI.
