Social Security Disability in Jacksonville, FL

Qualifications to receive SSDI and SSI benefits in Jacksonville

In This Section:

The Federal Government offers wage replacement for disabled Jacksonville claimants through two federal disability programs, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

To qualify for Social Security Disability in Jacksonville disability claimants must have worked jobs covered by Social Security and paid enough in payroll taxes to be considered "insured" by the Social Security Administration. Social Security Disability Insurance in Jacksonville is only offered to those who are considered disabled by the Social Security Administration and who are unable to work for at least 12 continuous months due to a severe physical or mental health condition.

The goal of Jacksonville SSDI is to help the primary wage earners of the family replace their wages if they die or are unable to work. Jacksonville Social Security Disability Insurance benefits can also be payable to widows, children, widowers, and disabled adults if they were disabled before they turned 22. Jacksonville SSDI claimants may also receive Medicare coverage 24 months after the onset date of disability.

Claimants who have not worked or have not worked outside of the home, may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) in Jacksonville. Jacksonville Supplemental Security Income benefits are provided for the blind, aged (65 years or older) or disabled whose resources and income are below the levels allowed by the SSA. Jacksonville Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claimants may also be eligible for Medicaid, in most states, at the time of approval.
