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. If you would like my counsel as you go through this process, please tell me about your situation using the Free Claim Evaluation form on this page, or call my office or send me an email.

I wish you success.

Houston Texans looking for WR complement to DeAndre Hopkins HOUSTON -- Lining up on the perimeter of the defense,Ronnie Stanley Jersey Houston Texans Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins quickly gets cornerbacks back on their heels with the explosiveness in his patterns. While Hopkins is an established commodity after a career breakthrough season last year in which he caught 111 passes for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns,Karl Joseph Jersey the Texans are breaking in several new wide receivers to work in tandem with him. "It's interesting," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said.Peyton Manning Jersey "When you think about that, you have different guys. Some guys like Hopkins who have been in our system now going on three years that know where to line up at every position.Will Fuller Jersey" Jaelen Strong has impressed with his upgraded conditioning after his rookie season. First-round pick Will Fuller has flashed his trademark speed, and caught the football crisply while absorbing the playbook.Julian Edelman Jersey Third-round wide receiver Braxton Miller is adapting well to his new position after converting from quarterback while playing for Ohio State. Cecil Shorts is healthy again after catching 42 passes for 484 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games and four starts last season. And the Texans have seen good things from wide receivers Keith Mumphery and undrafted rookie Wendall Williams,Artie Burns Jersey one of the fastest players on the roster with a 4.32 time in the 40-yard dash. "You have those guys like Mumphery and Jaelen that are going into year two,Steve Smith Sr Jersey that are really bright receivers and you can use them in different ways, too," O'Brien said.Josh Doctson Jersey "Then you have your rookies in Will (Fuller) and Braxton (Miller), and a guy like Wendall Williams, who has been out there doing some good things.Von Miller Jersey There are kind of three different groups of guys. Cecil Shorts is going into year two, but he's a veteran player and knows our system really well.Jack Conklin Jersey "There are different standards in the fact that we don't expect Will Fuller and Braxton Miller to know where to lineup and run the exact route at every single position. But we do expect them to know the positions that we're starting them out in. They're doing a good job with that. Whereas Hopkins, there is a very, very high standard for him and moving him around and asking him to do a lot of different things. That's what we're trying to do. So different strokes for different folks a little bit at that position
