Filing A Disability Claim In New York

While it is possible to file a Social Security Disability claim on your own, it is best to work with an experienced SSDI and SSI attorney. Most Social Security Disability claims are denied at the first stage of the process. But an experienced lawyer can put the application together with all the correct and complete information — giving you the best possible chance to get the benefits you need the first time around.

At Dennis Kenny Law, we help people throughout New York State file successful Social Security Disability claims. For nearly 15 years, we have been achieving results for clients — and our record of success proves it. Over the years, we have won millions of dollars worth of awards in thousands of cases.*

The Requirements For A Successful Social Security Disability Claim

A person who seeks Social Security Disability Insurance benefits must prove that he or she is "disabled" under the government's very specific definition of the word. The Social Security Administration says that a person is "disabled" based on his or her inability to work.

There are three basic requirements:

  • The person cannot work as before the disability.
  • The SSA must be convinced that the medical condition does not allow the applicant to adjust to other work.
  • The disability must last or be expected to last for a year or more, or be expected to result in death.
