How To Qualify For Disability In Florida
First, let’s cover some basics about how to qualify. The SSA has defined some key requirements that you must meet in order to qualify for disability benefits. Generally, the SSA will consider you to be disabled if:
- You cannot do work that you did before
- You have worked and paid into Social Security, earning satisfactory work credits
- The SSA decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s)
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death
