Social Security Disability Recipients in Hialeah 

According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), around 13,900 disabled workers and 2,500 disabled children/adults under 65 in Hialeah currently receive monthly Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits as of 2022 data.

Each year, over 7,000 initial disability claims are filed with the SSA from individuals living in the Hialeah metro area zip codes. Unfortunately, around 65% of these SSDI and SSI cases are denied at the initial application and reconsideration levels, only to potentially get approved later in the appeals process.
