Social Security Disability / SSI

At OGA, we handle SSD and SSI claims throughout the Hudson Valley. We handle Social Security claims in Orange, Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan, Rockland, Westchester, Putnam, and other surrounding counties in New York. We have even represented the disabled in SS claims in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey, and even the State of Florida.

Social Security Insurance Program (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are federal programs intended to help people who are unable to work due to any type of medical condition. Unfortunately, most people who apply for SSD claims are denied initially. At OGA, we handle SS claims from Application through Appeals. If you wish to apply for SSD Benefits, this office can help you complete the necessary paperwork in a prompt, clear, and concise manner to help you gain approval of your SSD claim. Additionally, if you are denied SSD Benefits, our office can help you request a hearing in front of an ALJ and handle all other aspects of the appeals process. At OGA, we can assist you with your SSD and your SSI claims, whether at the initial application, reconsideration, hearing, or Appellate level.

We assist clients with their SSD applications. We will review the case to determine the best theory to maximize the likelihood of success before the SS Administration. With our representation, you will have a guide to present and frame a theory from the very beginning of your claim. Additionally, you will have help in obtaining the proper medical evidence that is necessary in order to support your claim that you are disabled and unable to work. We will stay in touch with you and the SSA regarding the status of your claim and file any appeals that are necessary. We will not obtain an attorney’s fee from you unless we are successful on your claim.

We have handled claims for people with many disabling injuries or diseases that prevent them from working. We have experienced handling claims for individuals who have musculoskeletal complaints such as neck, back, bilateral knee, and shoulder pain. We have had success handling cases for individuals with psychiatric claims and those suffering from neuropathy, retinopathy, heart disease, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
