When New York residents get injured on the job, or contract an illness due to on-the-job factors, the primary concern is obviously getting these people the medical treatment they need. However, after the initial medical concerns have been addressed, what then? These individuals are usually looking at a situation in which they have no means of earning an income because of the injury or illness. This is a big question indeed. But, for some of the people who find themselves in this type of situation, Social Security Disability benefits might be an option.
Unfortunately, most New York residents don’t know too much about Social Security Disability and the process by which they apply and get approved to receive these benefits. On top of dealing with a life-altering injury or illness, these individuals have many questions about how they might be able to get approved to receive SSD benefits to at least make ends meet financially.
The good news is that people who need more information about Social Security Disability and the application process have options. At our law firm, we work with our clients to attempt to make sure that they have all of the right information regarding their questions about SSD benefits. We do our best to inform our clients about the medical requirements to be approved for SSD benefits and address issues as to why applicants might be denied Social Security Disability Benefits.
