Social Security Disability Benefits

Under the Federal Social Security Disability Act, “disability” means the “inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months or results in death”.

If you are disabled from performing substantial gainful activity you may be eligible for Social Security Disability, (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income, (SSI). Unfortunately the Social Security Administration often denies truly disabled Claimants. All too often, it takes an experienced Lawyer with a thorough knowledge of the laws and medical listings to get disabled Claimants benefits.

Let us increase your chances of early payment by guiding you through the application process. By law anyone may file for his or her own Social Security Disability benefits. Statistics show that Claimants who have representation, win their benefits much more often than those who apply on their own. LET US HELP YOU prepare your application properly from the beginning to avoid these problems.

The government makes the process very difficult. Waiting lines are long. Forms are complicated. Benefits are often denied to people who have good claims. And not just once; frequently twice. Sometimes more often. As a result many people who apply on their own become discouraged and intimidated. They simply back off, give up, and go away, even when they are most likely entitled to benefits. The period to file for disability may disappear if you do not apply within the first five years that you stopped working. You must act quickly!

Let our 99% rate of winning work for you!

Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) are paid to individuals who have worked for 20 quarters within the last 5 years of filing for disability and have paid into the Social Security system. It is especially important to hire an experienced attorney if you are under 55 years of age. The criteria is stiffer for those under 55, and especially under 50.

You can receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if you are indigent and disabled, whether or not you have worked in the past, or missed the deadline to file for regular Social Security Disability benefits.

Allow me to assist you in filing your Application for Social Security disability benefits. If you have already filed and have been denied, let me assist you in requesting an appeal or a hearing. I am prepared to present your case for hearing and be with you every step of the way of this appeal process.

I am a Non Attorney Advocate who has worked under attorneys preparing disability claims for 40 years. I have also been approved by the Administration for fee approval for my services. There is no fee until we obtain your benefits. I contend that my success is based on great effort, diligence and staying apprised of the rules and regulations of the Administration.


When I decided that I was finally going to apply for disability after working, in severe pain, for 20 years, a friend gave me one phone number. It was for Kathy Sterbling, Paralegal for Social Security Disability. I admit, I was skeptical at first wondering if it would really be an added “benefit” to have someone represent me and then there was the question of having to pay for representation. Well, it was singlehandedly one of the BEST decisions my husband and I had ever made in our entire lives.

From the first phone call to Kathy, where she talked with me for over an hour, to the many, many meetings that she had with my husband and I to filling out and filing the initial paperwork, which was a nightmare, to her her consistent and constant availability. Kathy was ALWAYS accessible whether it be by email, text, phone calls, or her willingness to meet with me as many times as I needed.
