Eligibility For Social Security Disability Benefits In Florida
Question: Is there a way to know if I am eligible for social security disability benefits in Florida?
Answer: In order to file a Social Security benefit claim in Florida, a person must have been seriously injured and be disabled for one year or more, or have an illness that may result in death within one year.
To be eligible for a Florida disability claim, an individual has to have worked for five of the last ten years and have become disabled and unable to work. You do not have to be “permanently disabled” to file a Social Security claim.
