Social Security Disability Claims and Benefits Attorney in the State of New York
If you are a NY resident and became disabled and unable to work, it is important to remember that Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are the main Federal programs to provide assistance to disabled people. However, filing a disability claim for Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can be confusing, time consuming and frustrating. I’m an SSDI Benefits Attorney and I’m here to help.
First, let’s briefly define the programs. SSDI is designed to provide support to people who cannot work due to a permanent disability (a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death), and has paid Social Security taxes long enough based on standards defined and established by the U.S. Social Security Administration. SSI, on the other hand, is a needs based program designed to provide a supplemental income to aged, blind, or disabled individuals with low income levels and relatively modest resources.
I assist clients with Social Security Disability claims throughout the Hudson Valley region of New York. If you are disabled because of an accident, injury, or medical condition, please call me today for a free telephone evaluation of your Social Security claim. In addition, if you’ve already applied and received a denial from the U.S. Social Security Administration, I can help you with an appeal. If you choose to use my services for your claim, note that my fees are paid only from past Social Security benefits already owing and are limited by Federal law.
