While your disability may seem obvious, it doesn't necessarily guarantee you will qualify for benefits. Filing a Social Security disability claim in New York can be very challenging. This is why it may be in your best interest to secure legal help from a Staten Island Social Security disability attorney.

6 Steps to File a Social Security Disability Claim in New York:

  • Initial Application - Social Security Administration determines which disability program for which you are eligible
  • Medical Determination - a medical determination is made on your claim
  • Reconsideration - if your initial claim is denied, you may file for it to be reconsidered
  • Hearing - if the request for reconsideration is denied, you may appeal your claim and request a hearing
  • Appeals Council - if the hearing does not result in a favorable outcome, you may then make an appeal to the Appeals Council
  • Federal Appeals - this is the final step if your claim is denied by the Appeals Council 

Each step in itself can be very time-consuming and complicated, which is why you should enlist the help of an experienced attorney.
