It is my mission to help the disabled through the complex process of filing for Social Security Disability benefits.  Read more about me here.  

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are the two largest Federal assistance programs that offer financial support to people with disabilities. To find out if you are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, please contact me.


Did you know?


  • If Social Security finds you disabled, there is a 5 month waiting period from the date you became disabled before Social Security Disability will deem you eligible for benefits.
  • You may be eligible for back benefits
  • If there is no back benefit to pursue, it is often hard to find representation.



Why do I need a Social Security Disability Advocate?


With the number of applications for Social Security disability on the rise, it is increasingly difficult for disabled individuals to receive a favorable decision from the SSA regarding their disability claims. In recent years, denial rates have climbed to well over 60% for the initial application stage, leaving applicants unsure of their options and unprepared to further pursue a claim for the benefits that they rightfully deserve.



Why do I need a Social Security Disability Advocate ("SSDA")?  An SSDA will:


  • Improve your chances of being approved.
  • Guide you through the complex filing procedures.
  • Take away the worry of how the claim process works for you.
  • Gather all the paperwork so you don't have to.
