Social Security Disability

Adult Disability

If you were injured and, as a result, became disabled, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) as long as you have a qualifying condition and meet all other eligibility requirements. SSD and/or SSI are ways for disabled individuals to maintain some financial stability when they are no longer able to work. Applying for Social Security can be a challenging process. The Law Office of Neubia L. Harris, PLLC is here to help.  We can assist you with applying for SSD or SSI.  We can also assist with appealing a denied claim.
