The benefit of collecting SSD benefits in New York

Did you know that the United States Census Bureau's most recent estimates put New York's total population at more than 19.6 million people? If the Centers for Disease Control is right and roughly 20 percent of adults in the U.S. have a disability, this could mean that a large number of people in our state have a physical or mental impairment.

How do I appeal a denied SSD claim?

The question we pose in today's blog post is one that is commonly asked across the nation because of the fact that many applications for Social Security disability benefits are denied initially.

Scientists are often left asking one important question: where do they come from and how do they develop?

Being aware of your ticket to work

October is an incredibly special month in the United States. Not simply because of Halloween but because it is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. What began in 1945 as the first week in October to raise awareness about offering employment to people with disabilities, the NDEAM was later expanded to the entire month, further expounding on the message that people with disabilities have just as much of a right to work than everyone else.
