Florida Social Security Disability Attorney
Collecting Disability Payments in Florida
Upon approval of your claim, a letter from the SSA will arrive with confirmation. Social Security will have set the date for when you became officially disabled, and will specify what date your benefit payments will begin.
Five months after the date on which you are found to be lawfully disabled your disability payments can begin. The amount you will be able to receive is based upon a record of your lifetime earnings. An annual statement of earnings is sent each year by the SSA that shows an estimate of your monthly benefit you can receive for disability.
You are eligible to receive a check each month from Social Security; however, the SSA recommends having the benefit check directly deposited into a secure bank account. This is protection for the beneficiary and saves Social Security time and money. The birth date of the individual's social security number under which the disability claim was filed is the basis for what date you will receive payment.
As long as your medical condition does not improve and you continue to be unable to work, the benefits will last and you'll keep receiving payment. In regards to medical advances, certain claims may be reviewed to determine updated eligibility to receive disability benefits.
