I Have A Benign Brain Tumor And Feel That Im Unable To Continue Working. Do I Qualify For Florida Disability Benefits? If So, What Should I Do?
A:You may be eligible for Florida disability benefits. In order to determine your eligibility, you would have to file a claim with the Social Security Administration office. A Social Security examiner will then conduct an in depth review regarding your tumor.
During this time, the examiner will request your medical records, pathology report, and laboratory tests, among other doctor notes. He or she will review your impairment based on the Social Security guidelines to determine if you are eligible to work or to receive disability benefits.
The process can be lengthy and confusing. Just filing the paperwork alone is critical to your disability claim. Your first step should be to meet with an experienced South Florida Social Security disability attorney to find out more about the process for filing a disability claim.
A qualified attorney will be able to answer your legal questions and give you insight if they think you will qualify for any benefits based on your medical findings.
