Social Security Disability (SSD) & Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

For many Americans, Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are a lifeline: 

  • SSD provides monthly income to individuals living with a disability who previously worked 
  • SSI serves individuals with limited income who are blind, living with disability, or 65+ years old 

If you believe you qualify for SSD or SSI and need help applying or if your benefits were terminated, NYLAG can help you navigate the Social Security Administration (SSA). Call us at 212-613-5000.
