New York disability lawyer, Wendy Brill, explains how the Social Security disability benefits process works
In my 30 years as a New York disability lawyer, I have learned that most New Yorkers do not understand how the Social Security disability benefits process works. This confusion stems in large part from the fact that the Social Security Administration is a large bureaucracy, governed by a complex set of rules and regulations. The paperwork, alone, can seem overwhelming. If, however, you are unable to work because of a physical or mental disability, the daunting nature of the process should not deter you from seeking benefits.
To help you get started, here’s a big-picture overview of how the New York Social Security disability benefits process works >>. On the other 100+ pages of this site, you will find more detailed information about specific impairments, the disability evaluation process, and the appeals process.
An experienced New York disability lawyer can help you navigate every step of this process
An experienced New York disability lawyer can help you efficiently and effectively navigate the Social Security disability benefits process by narrowing the issues in your case and focusing on the facts that are most important to the Social Security decision-makers. I have been helping disabled New Yorkers obtain Social Security disability benefits for 30 years. I am experienced at every level of this process, from filing an initial application through federal court appeals. My experience extends to all types of Social Security disability benefits claims, including claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for adults and children, adult disabled children’s benefits, and widow/widowers’ benefits.
