Florida Social Security disability benefits are paid only to workers who have long-term impairments that preclude any gainful work, regardless of whether the disability arose on or off the job. By law, the benefits are paid only to workers who are unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of a medically determinable physical or mental impairment that is expected to last at least a year or result in death. The injury or condition has to be severe enough that the worker is not only unable to do his or her previous work but is also unable to do any other type of substantial gainful work. Social Security disability benefits begin after a 5-month waiting period.
The amount of benefits in Florida and Nationwide that Social Security paid in wage-replacement benefits to disabled workers and their dependents in 2008 was over $176 billion. Employer and employee each pay 5.3 percent of wages for Social Security’s Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and 0.9 percent for Disability Insurance. Thus, the total paid for Disability Insurance is 1.8 percent of taxable wages.
