Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, helps those in need of filing an initial claim or appealing a denied benefits claim. The Social Security Administration (SSA) offers programs that pay monthly benefits to those unable to work due to illness, injury or a worsening health condition. These programs are known as Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
Social Security Disability bases its payment of benefits on your earnings over the past 10 years. Supplemental Security Income pays benefits to disabled adults and children who do not have sufficient earnings to qualify for Social Security Disability. Qualifications for disability are determined by New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance.
Our disability lawyers can help you determine which of these programs is right for you and your circumstances. We promise to work hard in getting your benefits paid.
