Margate Social Security Disability Lawyer and Attorney, Randy Zeldin, Esq., is proud to have been serving this community, a suburb of greater Ft. Lauderdale, for over 20 years. At hearing before the Ft. Lauderdale Social Security Judges, it is common practice for the government to retain the services of an independent vocational expert. A vocational expert should be someone who has both actual knowledge of the duties associated with a variety of jobs and experience in placing hard to place individuals, who have mental and/or physical handicaps. Vocational experts will review the medical and employment history of the Social Security applicant, to assess and render an opinion whether there are jobs in the U.S. national economy, which are within the individual’s ability. It does not matter whether an individual applicant will actually be hired; Social Security seeks to determine merely whether the job exists.

Social Security Disability is an insurance program, where an individual must have enough quarters of coverage from Social Security taxes paid in, to have insured status. Fully insured status requires having one quarter of coverage for every calendar year before becoming disabled. Disability insured status essentially means having paid Social Security taxes for 5 of the prior 10 years immediately prior to the date of disability. Margate Social Security Disability Attorney and Lawyer reviews the earnings record of his clients, to be certain that there are sufficient earnings to quality for Social Security Disability. Alternative consideration is given to Social Security Incoem

Entitlement to Social Security Disability starts at either the 6th month following the date of onset of disability or 12 months before the filing date, whichever is later. Social Security beneficiaries can receive Medicare 24 months after the date of entitlement, although individuals with certain urgent illnesses, such as end stage renal disease or kidney transplant, have immediate access.

On June 26, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court held section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional. This decision will have an impact on over 1,000 federal laws, including the Social Security Act. The Supreme Court decision will have an impact on the eligibility of Ft. Lauderdale and Margate dependents and survivors for various Social Security benefits. Clearly, same-sex marriages are most certainly to be considered equally for dependent benefits, as new regulations are issued. The Social Security Administration will look to the law of the State where the insured worker resides, to determine the nature of the relationship and if it constitutes a marriage.

Mr. Zeldin represented me at my social security disability hearing. He was always responsive to any questions, his staff was a delight to work with, and I feel I won my case by the comments Mr. Zeldin made at my administrative hearing before the judge. I highly recommend him. Debra
