Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) can be a daunting task. This is particularly true if you are suffering from a catastrophic injury or illness that makes it hard to focus and complete the paperwork. In fact, most people who are applying for SSDI do have some type of impairment which will inhibit their ability to effectively complete the necessary paperwork. Afterall, individuals who could easily complete the paperwork would likely not be applying for SSDI in the first place. Although the Social Security Administration (SSA) has streamlined the process in recent years, there are still many papers that are needed to apply for SSDI in New York.
