Supplemental Security Income in Florida - Wildoner Law, PLLC

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are disability income benefits administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) that also provide health insurance to eligible individuals.



The process starts with you submitting an application for SSI benefits. Typically, this application can only be submitted over the phone due to the sensitive information required such as your current household income, current asset valuation, and information about any other financial assistance you may be receiving. The initial SSI application is then similar to the SSDI application, as it requests basic information about your current conditions, current treating sources, and current medications, as well as your work history and family size. SSA will then review your application, request all medical records you told them about, and make an initial determination.


If you are approved – congratulations! The process stops here, and SSA will be in touch for information on your current income and assets, as well as how to pay your benefits via direct deposit.


If you are denied, you will need to file a Request for Reconsideration within the first sixty days of the denial letter. SSA will once again review your file, pull any new medical evidence, and make another decision. If they approve it at this level, the process stops here and SSA will be in touch for the information on your current income and assets, as well as how to pay your benefits via direct deposit.


If you have an illness and are not able to work, you can apply for Social Security disability benefits. For more information, you can visit our website. Contact now!
