We represent a 38 year old former pharmacy technician from Ozone Park with multiple sclerosis (“MS”). We filed her application for Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits six years ago. We continued to fight for SSD benefits at all levels of adjudication. The first administrative law judge (“ALJ”) on the case was Jay Cohen. Cohen’s decision denying SSD benefits was so transparently defective that when we appealed to federal court, the attorneys representing Social Security immediately asked us to agree to remand the case.
The good news is that the case was finally approved today by a new ALJ. The bad news is that it took the claimant six years to get approved. Moreover, as is typical in cases that last this long, it will take many months for her to get paid. Having said that, the claimant is grateful that we “stuck with her” and finally got her approved.
If you need assistance applying for disability, or help with a claim that you already filed, please feel free to call my office for a free phone consultation. We have offices conveniently located in Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island.
