Defining Your Disability in New York

Regardless of what type of disability you have and how long you have been able to work, it is not what you know or what your family and friends know that counts. It is important that you are able to define your disability in a way that convinces the Social Security Administration (SSA) to award you benefits. The SSA and its medical systems are complex and most disabled individuals are unable to tackle the entire process by themselves.

At The Klein Law Group, P.C., our attorneys will help you understand your right to Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. We will help you to openly and honestly define your disability and outline how it is preventing you from returning to work.

Experienced NYC SSDI Attorneys

The first step that you can take in order to define your disability is to let your doctors know about any and all symptoms that you have experienced and how they have impacted you. Without that information, your doctor will likely be unable to give you a proper evaluation and you will not get the right treatment as a result. Without the proper treatment, there will not be adequate documentation to succeed with your SSD or SSI claim.

It can also be helpful, and very useful, to keep a journal for this purpose and to help make a case. Provide this copy to your doctors and your attorney, and it can also serve as helpful documentation of your injuries and their impact.
