For those with mental and physical disabilities, working is often not an option. Without the steady income that comes from employment, it can be very challenging to support yourself and your family. That’s why Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs exist, to ensure that those who are disabled receive the financial assistance they need and deserve. However, many people with valid disabilities are denied.
At Casale & Bonner, P.C., our attorneys will fight for you. We know how stressful it can be to be denied access to the assistance you and your family need. Since 1956, our Williamsport, PA firm has been the one that those with disabilities can trust to provide them with committed representation.
Getting You the Disability Benefits You Deserve
What Happens if You Get Denied?
To be accepted for SSD or SSI, you must have a long-term physical or mental disability that makes you unable to work for at least one year. Many people who apply for these programs are denied their first time. If you are denied, give our attorneys a call immediately. This is because, if you are going to appeal, you must file the appeal within 60 days after you are denied. We will work to gather all of the evidence in your favor and take care of your appeal filing. During the appeal process, your SSD application will be reviewed, information will be gathered and documentation will be created to determine a date for benefits.

We have a high success rate in helping clients win social security benefits during the appeal hearing.
