How is a Social Security Disability Claim Made in Florida?
If you suffer from a disability or injury that causes you to become temporarily or permanently disabled, you may be entitled to Social Security payments. Claims for Social Security disability payments are usually initially made through the one of the SSA field offices. The field office is typically only responsible for verifying the claimant’s:
- Marital status
- Social Security coverage information
The field office then sends the case to Disability Determination Services (DDS) for an evaluation of the disability. The claim is reviewed and a decision is made. Unfavorable decisions can be appealed, but it is always best to make a strong case during your initial filing.
How Will an Inverness SSI Attorney Prove My Disability?
Each person who files a disability claim is responsible for providing medical evidence showing he or she has an impairment and the severity of the impairment. The SSA can help you with the process, but your initial case for Social Security disability is typically made through your private medical professional. You usually must be able to provide medical evidence (documentation) that demonstrates:
- You have a severe and lasting injury or illness,
- Your disability prohibits you from gainful employment, and
- The disability is permanent.
You will also want to provide additional evidence that demonstrates how your disability has negatively impacted your life. Disability symptoms should be recorded and tracked. Keep a detailed log of all your symptoms and treatments. Examples may include:
- The location, duration, frequency, and intensity of the pain,
- Mitigating and aggravating factors (when are the symptoms better or worse),
- Side effects of any medication,
- Treatments being used for the relief of pain,
- Any measures the claimant uses or has used to relieve pain, and
- Other limitations you may have due to pain or other symptoms.
If you have questions about what is required to demonstrate a Social Security claim, or if you are having trouble getting the required evidence, contact a Social Security disability lawyer at Mike Murburg, PA today.
What Happens if My Social Security Claim is Denied?

Serving Citrus County Clients
Our office is located on South Citrus Avenue, just down the street from the Avanti nursing home and a few minutes away from the shops and restaurants of the courthouse area. Our office is in a white historical building, typical of the beautiful town of Inverness, Florida. Please note that Citrus Avenue, where our office is situated, is bifurcated by the hospital.

Normally, our clients from Lecanto, Beverly Hills, Dunnellon, Floral City, Marion Oaks, Inglis and Crystal River choose to meet us here.
