New York Social Security Disability Income Attorneys
If your workplace injury is severe and debilitating, you may be entitled to receive monthly Social Security Disability Income (SSDI). The federal government provides SSDI benefits to people who are unable to work due to a disability. The applicant must have worked for a designated amount of years and have paid a designated amount of social security taxes before their disability came about to qualify for the benefit.
Many people applying for benefits incorrectly calculate the length of time and the amount of money that they have paid into social security. These calculations can be, and if done incorrectly, the Social Security Administration will unfairly deny your application.
If you are applying for SSDI benefits, one of our attorneys will help you navigate the process. If the Social Security Administration denies your SSDI benefits application, you will need to appeal the decision and attend a hearing. At this hearing, an administrative law judge decides whether to approve or continue to deny your benefits. A skilled attorney will ensure that you present compelling evidence and correctly fill out all of the necessary forms promptly for your appeal.
If you have been injured in a work injury, you need expert legal representation to gain the most compensation possible. Likewise, if you are currently unable to work as a result of your injury, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Income.
