Sometimes, the Social Security Disability Administration will try to cut your benefits under a "Continuing Disability Review," or "CDR." If this happens, all is far from lost. You can elect to fight a decision to cut your benefits. You can also elect to keep getting benefits while the administration conducts its review-but act fast, because you only have a few days to file for continuing benefits after your notice of termination. You will have to decide whether to collect benefits during the review, because if you lose your appeal, you will owe back all benefits you received during the process of review.
I am proud to announce that last year we recovered more than one million dollars in Social Security Disability benefits for our clients.
As this New York Post article will show, construction, demolition, and scaffold workers continue to be forced to work in unsafe conditions for illegally low wages. New York's men and women in construction risk their lives and health on behalf of the city's economy, and deserve a lot better. There are too many scaffold accidents, construction hole collapses--too many broken and fractured backs and knees and shoulders. Too many deaths. It's time for New York to come to the aid of our construction, demolition, asbestos removal, and scaffold workers!
If you are on Social Security Disability benefits or are about to file for Social Security Disability benefits because you are disabled, and too disabled for all but a minimum of gainful employment, you need to know that the Social Security Administration will be making changes for the coming year.
Many working men and women in New York believe that Workers' Compensation is an automatic benefit. They become understandably frustrated when that proves not to be true, and they are forced to wait for a weekly benefit check and for proper medical treatment.
I am sharing this article which is of importance to all New Yorkers, but especially to my clients and friends who are construction workers, and who work with scaffolds, and doing asbestos removal, and doing demolition. As the article states, workplace accidents keep rising. That is terrible and it must be stopped! New York's business owners, politicians, and community leaders must get together to make New York a Zero Workplace Accident state!
Quiero compartir con mis clientes que trabajan en construcción, demolición y remoción de asbesto, y con mis amigos, este excelente artículo de Gary LaBarbera, Presidente del Concilio de Oficios de Edificios y Construcción. Dicen que no tenemos un regalo más grande que nuestra salud - es importante mantener presión sobre los políticos de Nueva York para que continúen a efectuar un estado de Cero-Accidente en Nueva York.
