Social Security Disability

We assist our clients in applying for and obtaining SSD and SSI benefits.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are two federal benefits programs for disabled individuals who are unable to work. The Social Security Administration runs these programs, and there is an extensive application and evaluation procedure for people who want to obtain these benefits.

Securing these benefits can be an overwhelming process, but it won’t be with our help.  People use our services at Gallagher Baker because we not only have decades of combined experience handling SSD and SSI claims, but also take the time to make the application process easier for our clients.  We are one of the few law firms that help people with their SSD/SSI cases from the beginning, starting with their initial application.

Your family deserves to focus on important health-related matters, not filing paperwork and dealing with the SSA.  Learn why you need an experienced lawyer for your case by calling our office at 607-722-5840 to speak with a lawyer.

We will assist you at every stage of the application process.  When we meet with you we will explain the specific benefits that SSD and SSI can provide in your case, as well as the eligibility criteria for both. We will help you submit your application to the Social Security Administration, and if it is necessary to appeal a denied claim, we will be with you every step of the way to help you obtain these important benefits.
