Disability / Social Security


If you are disabled and unable to work, you know what a highly stressful and emotional time this is in your life. However, you may be entitled to receive Social Security disability benefits that can help you in many ways. If you have applied for Social Security disability benefits and have been denied those benefits, you're not alone. Approximately 60-70% of all applications are initially denied.
