If you are seeking benefits from Social Security, contact Harris & Riviere today and speak with a trusted Social Security disability lawyer in Tampa. Our firm can provide the personalized guidance and information you need to successfully obtain benefits you are eligible to receive.

When you choose to work with our office, we can determine if one of the following types of benefits may be right for you and your family:

  • Disabled workers' benefits - If you are now disabled, but you have worked long enough in a form of employment that involved in paying into the Social Security system, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits.
  • Supplemental Security Income - If you are now disabled, but have not worked long enough to qualify for regular disability, there is a safety net program which pays a monthy benefit called SSI. You must have limited income and resources to qualify.
  • Children's SSI benefits - Children who are disabled or are not performing on par with children of a similar age, may be eligible for SSI benefits. Children's SSI is only available to low income parent(s).
  • Survivor benefits - If you are a spouse or child of an individual who passed away, you may be eligible to obtain your family member's benefits; however, you need an attorney on your side who can help establish your eligibility in these case-specific situations.
