Starting the application process …this can be a daunting task to anyone, more so when you are disabled.
Applying for Social Security disability benefits (SSDB) can be quite frustrating and daunting to anyone but it is even more difficult when you are disabled. The entire process of an appeal is different than the initial application. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has your initial application reviewed by a New York State agency. This agency uses a disability examiner and a medical doctor, but these people do not see you. They make their decision based only on the documents in your Social Security file. We take the worry and burden by personally meeting face to face with the client, obtaining all necessary information and filing our clients claim by using the electronic internet application process.
- Meeting face to face with our client.
