What Can Social Security Disability In New York Do For Me?
The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs provide assistance to people with disabilities and are two of the largest Federal programs. These two programs differ in many ways, however, both are administered by the Social Security Administration. Only individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria may qualify for benefits. Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to those who are “insured” and certain members of their family. Being insured means that you worked and paid Social Security taxes. Supplemental Security Income pays benefits on financial need.

Testimonial by Lilliam Rivera-Reyes

"I had a very challenging case; another attorney took my case and to my surprise sent me a letter dropping my case. I was very down and did not think I had a chance, until I met Mr. Berger and his staff.

Their professionalism and hospitality was very warm and inviting. They took my case on as a challenge and gave me a hope. I am very thankful for his professionalism and for winning my case. I will never forget him and will recommend him to my friends and family."
