NYC Social Security Disability Attorney
If you can't work, we'll go to work for you
You work hard. You paid into the system. If you can no longer work due to an injury or illness, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is available to you. But actually getting the benefits you need to live can be an uphill battle. The NYC Social Security Disability lawyers at Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP can help.
Understanding Social Security Disability Insurance
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) is a federal program that provides steady income for people who cannot work due to a disability. In order to be eligible for SSD, you need to meet the following criteria:
- Have worked a certain amount of time in jobs covered by Social Security.
- Have a disability that fits the Social Security Administration's criteria.
- Be under 65 years old. (at age 65, the retirement portion of Social Security kicks in, so you no longer need the disability portion)
In principle, that seems straightforward. But actually getting SSD benefits can be surprisingly difficult. The Social Security Administration routinely denies applications. Even if you know you have a disability, proving it to the agency's satisfaction can be very challenging.
That's why you need an experienced NYC Social Security Disability lawyer on your side, fighting for your best interests. We have a strong track record in SSD appeals, and we know how to build a strong case that helps you get the benefits you deserve.
The sooner you take action, the better. We handle these cases on a contingency fee basis with no up-front cost. If we win your case, our fee is just a percentage of the back benefits you are owed. In other words, the sooner you contact us, the more money will end up in your pocket if we win your case.
Take action quickly to get the benefits you need. We can meet with you at any of our offices in New York City, or we can come to you. Schedule your free consultation with a NYC Social Security Disability attorney today.
