Claiming disability benefits for blood clots in Florida

Almost 5 percent of Florida residents are receiving Social Security Disability benefits from the state. This means that they have gone through the application process successfully and have proven that they meet all the guidelines.

Although many people in the state of Florida manage to successfully claim disability benefits, the rate of failure is actually quite high. Sixty-five percent of first time applicants are unsuccessful. However, this does not mean that they will not be successful on future appeals.

Often people are unsuccessful because they submit incomplete or inaccurate application forms. This is why it is important to understand exactly how the application process works so that you can get it right first time.

Could I be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits if I suffer from blood clots?

Blood clots can be very serious, and they affect many people who are suffering from certain conditions such as Pulmonary Embolism (PE) and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). These conditions, in addition to the pain, stress and suffering that they cause, can also lead to heavy financial strains. If you are unable to work because of your medical condition and if you are struggling financially, it is likely that you will be eligible for financial support from the Social Security Administration.

How do I know if my particular condition is recognized?

The Social Security Administration has a highly comprehensive list of conditions that are recognized and potentially covered financially through disability benefits. This list is commonly known as the Blue Book. The Blue Book tends to use highly specific medical language, so it is a good idea to ask your doctor for assistance in establishing your eligibility.

What other factors will affect my eligibility for disability benefits?

In order to gain disability benefits, you must be able to show that the condition you are suffering from is affecting your life to the extent that you are unable to work. You should be able to give evidence that the disability is directly impacting your inability to gain an income.

If you are suffering from blood clots as a resident in the state of Florida, it is important that you take action so that you can get the benefits that you deserve.
