What Disability Benefits Are Available To Me?

When applying for social security disability benefits, individuals can apply for both SSDI and SSI. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are benefits intended for people who are unable to work due to a disability. The Social Security Administration mandates that to be eligible for SSDI individuals must have earned sufficient work credits through paying into the Social Security trust fund by FICA taxes.

SSI or Supplemental Security Income differs from SSDI in that the benefits are intended for individuals who have not earned enough work credits to be eligible for SSDI. SSI is a need-based program for low-income people who are disabled.

How Do I Apply For SSDI And SSI Benefits In Winter Haven?

Individuals who are disabled can apply for Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income by:

  1. Calling The Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213
  2. Filing out the application form at
  3. Or by visiting Winter Haven’s local Social Security Office at :

Social Security Disability Frequently Asked Questions

Social Security laws can be complex and can leave potential applicants or denied applicants with many questions, including:

  • Can I file for Social Security Disability If I Haven’t Worked in Years? In most cases to qualify for SSDI individuals need to have worked five out of the last ten years. However, even if you do not qualify for SSDI, you may qualify for SSI benefits.
  • Am I entitled to benefits even if I was unable to work for an extended period of time but I am now back to work? You can qualify for “closed period of time” benefits as long as your disability lasted for at least one year. If you were unable to work for two or more years and then rejoined the workforce, you could be eligible to receive benefits retroactively for those years you were unable to work.
