Social Security Disability
Social Security, SSI, Private Disability Plans
Social Security provides both cash assistance and Medicare insurance to individuals who are disabled from working, whether or not they have ever worked. Children may also be granted benefits based on their own disabilities. The basic programs are known as Social Security Disability, or SSD, and Supplemental Security Income, or SSI. The conditions that lead to inability to work are wide-ranging, but commonly include both physical problems and the limitations and pain associated with them, and mental health issues, often stemming from the physical problems, but which are no less incapacitating. We are skilled at marshalling, interpreting, and presenting in a clear and persuasive manner all forms of medical evidence, involving both physical and mental health issues

All fees in these matters are contingent both on success and on the retroactive amount awarded, and are required to be approved by the agency. We also advocate for individuals in disputes over short and long term disability (STD, LTD) benefits that may be available when they are disabled from working.
