If you live in Jacksonville and can’t work due to illness or injury, you can apply for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income. This can be done at your local Jacksonville Social Security office or by calling the Social Security Administration (SSA) at (800) 772-1213. For your claim to be approved, you’ll have to prove to the SSA that you’re unable to perform (essentially) any job on a regular basis. While that may not seem like too difficult a task, the fact is that over 70% of applications for disability are denied nationwide. If you’re applying for Social Security in Jacksonville, you’ll probably be in for a long wait as you endure the SSA’s lengthy appeals process. If you do get granted benefits, it’s very likely that this will happen following your second appeal, when you’ll have your Jacksonville disability hearing. Although more than half of Jacksonville Social Security Disability hearings result in a favorable decision for the claimant, the wait for this hearing can be very long – in fact, the average wait for Jacksonville Social Security Disability applicants to have a hearing is 355 days.

When you apply for Social Security in Jacksonville, your file is sent to the Florida Disability Determination Services (DDS) where a claims adjudicator will review your records and make the decision on your application (in conjunction with a medical expert.) Although they will consider everything in your file, by far the most important piece of evidence is your medical records. In order to win your Social Security Disability claim, it’s essential that you have records reflecting ongoing medical treatment for your disabling conditions.

Some Jacksonville Social Security applicants could face difficulty have affording the medical treatment that they need. Luckily, there are some Jacksonville resources for free or reduced-cost healthcare.
