Some people think that filing for Social Security Disability Benefits is easy; you fill out some documents and in a matter of weeks, you are receiving a check. Unfortunately, this is a complete misconception. In fact, at the initial application stage, less than 27 percent of applicants in Florida are approved to receive SSDI benefits. Florida’s rate is actually lower than the national average rate of 31 percent. It gets even worse – Florida’s rate for reconsidering an application and setting an appeal hearing is lower than the national average as well. The typical wait time for a hearing in Florida is 367 days (i.e. over a year).
