How to appeal a denied Social Security disability claim

As some people in New York may know firsthand, finding out that your Social Security disability claim has been denied can be frustrating and heartbreaking.

New York part of federal 'PROMISE' to kids on SSI

We wrote recently about the complicated application and appeal process for veterans' disability benefits.
