Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability Attorneys in New York Who Take a Stand for the Injured and Disabled
New Yorkers are known for being hard workers with a strong sense of independence and self-sufficiency. So when an injury or illness has them laid up or out of work for a time, they often don’t realize they can receive benefit payments from the Social Security Administration to help them make ends meet. Social Security isn’t only a retirement program; it’s a disability program as well. You paid taxes on your earnings while you were working and you have the right to collect disability benefits from Social Security if you can’t work. If you are suffering from car accident injuries, a serious illness such as cancer, a workplace back injury or anything that keeps you from working, you may be eligible for SSD benefits, which can help you recover and get back on your feet.
Disabled Due to Injury or Illness? You Need an Experienced New York Social Security Benefits Lawyer
Sadly, too many New Yorkers don’t go after the SSD benefits they’ve worked so hard to pay into throughout their lives. Applying for Disability benefits is a complicated process and can be frustrating due to common SSD application mistakes that will delay or prevent SSD payments. It is also difficult to understand the difference between SSDI and SSI (Supplemental Security Income), so many folks give up altogether. Others won’t submit an SSD application, because they have too much pride and think it’s a hand-out. In fact, each of us has put money into the SSD FICA account with every hour we’ve worked, just as we deposit the rest of our paycheck into a personal bank account. As trusted SSD attorneys who have been helping New Yorkers obtain SSD payments during tough times, we will help fight for your rights too!
For Denied Social Security Benefits, Call a True SSD Attorney—Not a So-Called “Advocate”
Of the 2.5 million applications for SSD benefits the Social Security Administration receives each year, most SSD claims are rejected. With a tough SSD lawyer by your side, handling everything from filling out your application to an SSD claim appeal hearing, your chances of receiving SSD money increases exponentially. Don’t fall for all the ads telling you to call Social Security “advocates.” They don’t have the legal experience and background that a disability lawyer can provide.
