Expert Florida social security attorney
Social Security Disability is an area of Federal administrative law that focuses on two benefit programs for people who have become disabled and require monthly benefit payments to make up for their inability to work and earn a living. The number of applications for SSDI is at an all-time high. Because of its limited resources and the large volume of applications processed, it is estimated that the Social Security Administration denies more than 80% of initial applications for benefits. In the reconsideration stage of the appeal process, the number jumps to over 90%. Having a qualified Social Security attorney to help you correctly handle your application and the potential appeals process can be extremely beneficial.
