How Do I Apply For SSDI Benefits?

It is a daunting challenge: You have just suffered a debilitating injury or illness, and you start looking into the possibility of obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, only to find an extremely complex application process with a labyrinth of details. Especially if you are already hurt or sick, the prospect of going through the application process can be overwhelming.

At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., we understand what you are going through and we can help you. Since our Schenectady firm began as Silverman & Silverman in 1940, our New York SSDI benefits attorneys have dedicated our practice to helping disabled workers obtain the benefits they need.

We can help you with every aspect of the SSDI process:

  • Initial application: The SSDI application process is extraordinarily complex. Clerical errors, incomplete information and the use of incorrect medical terminology are common. We have the experience to help you avoid these errors and obtain the benefits you need.
  • Denial: The majority of claims are denied upon the initial application. Do not lose heart. We can still help you obtain your benefits.
  • Appeals: We have the experience to represent you through all of the filings and hearings involved in the appeals process. Although it is not an easy fight, many cases that are denied upon initial application can be won on appeal.

When you call Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., you will talk with an attorney who has the experience and legal knowledge to help you with the SSDI application process. If an attorney is unavailable, we will get to you as soon as possible. We understand that you are going through a difficult time, and we will do everything we can to take care of your legal needs.
