Social Security Applications Rise in Recession

The severe unemployment in Palm Beach and Broward Counties, has motivated many marginally disabled persons to apply for Social Security Disability Benefits. Some of these individuals were denied unemployment compensation and turned to Social Security instead. According to Social Security Disability Attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq., a disqualification for unemployment benefits has no bearing upon entitlement to Social Security Disability.

In fact, individuals receiving unemployment compensation in South Florida, will either have a difficult time obtaining Social Security or find that any benefits received are reduced.
