The Social Security Administration (SSA) may provide Social Security disability benefits if you suffer from a neurological condition that has resulted in permanent disability. When you are no longer able to work, disability benefits can help offset some of the income you are now without.

A New York Social Security disability lawyer will work with you through the entire process of applying for Social Security disability benefits. This includes the complicated paperwork and collecting evidence to prove the extent of your disability.
