Attorney Andy Norfleet has helped many people in Central Pennsylvania through the legal processes involved in SSDI and SSI claims. Our Harrisburg Social Security Disability attorney helps people at any point in the application or appeals process. Further,
A serious physical impairment or mental health impairment has the potential to change your life in many ways. Even if you cannot work, you still must find a way to support yourself and your family. The federal government has programs available to provide benefits to people who are unable to work due to a serious physical impairment, mental health impairment or a combination of both. Depending on your work history and the nature of your impairment, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

In order to qualify for these benefits, you must apply with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Before approving someone's claim for benefits, the SSA will look very closely at your application. If your application is flawed or incomplete, your claim likely will be denied. Do not lose hope if your application has been denied. Instead, contact a lawyer. The Harrisburg area law firm of Norfleet and Lafferty, LLC, helps people across Central Pennsylvania gain the Social Security benefits they so dearly need.
