The Perecman Firm is passionate about the workers of New York. Many hardworking individuals sustain injuries and fall ill every day that can prevent them from performing their job duties for an extended period. These individuals may qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits, and The Perecman Firm is here to ensure that these workers get the benefits they deserve.
The Social Security Administration pays disability benefits two ways: through the Social Security Disability Insurance program, also known as “SSDI,” and through Supplemental Security Income, or “SSI.” The Perecman Firm handles Social Security Disability claims, which are available to individuals who are unable to work because of a disability that will last around 12 months, or a disability/illness that will likely lead to death.
Social Security Disability is exclusively for workers afflicted with a total, long-term disability.
Social Security Disability qualifications also differ depending on the filer’s age. For example, if you are trying to file for Social Security Disability benefits when you are 24, you may need to have worked at least a year-and-a-half to qualify for benefits. The Perecman Firm can help you navigate the often-complex waters of disability benefits so you get the money you need and deserve.
A majority of claims for Social Security Disability are actually denied, even if the applicant qualifies for benefits. In many cases, this happens because of human error, such as a form field being filled in incorrectly, or missing paperwork. This is one of the main reasons you need an experienced New York Social Security Disability lawyer in your corner. We are here to ensure you get approved the first time, and if you have already been denied, to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
