What can Social Security Disability benefits can do for you?


On August 14, 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law, creating the Social Security Board, which would eventually turn into the Social Security Administration in 1939. In addition to handling Social Security benefits for retirees, the administration handles all applications and for United States citizens who utilize the benefits of Social Security Disability Insurance; workers who have disabilities prohibiting them from employment. The Social Security Administration also handles Supplemental Security Income to aid low-income workers and children.

The application process to be entered into these programs is not easy, and involves filling out various forms and documents. An applicant must prove that a disability qualifies for the program. This often requires proof from medical specialists in the form of multiple tests and examinations.

Due to the complexities and restrictions of the program, a majority of applicants are denied. But, even if you are denied, there is an appeals process to help you in getting accepted into the program. Applicants should not be intimidated; as of December of 2011, there were 10.6 million Americans collecting Social Security Disability Insurance. It may seem overwhelming, but there are ways to get help.

At our law firm we work with our clients to help them to obtain Social Security Disability benefits. We help disabled workers throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut traverse the Social Security Disability submission process to maximize their potential of a successful application. We stand by our clients' sides during the application process to attempt to improve their chances of success.
