Much of employment law traditionally focuses on issues arising in the workplace. For some individuals, though, a disability makes it impossible to keep and/or maintain employment. These individuals likely qualify for assistance from the federal government’s Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs. These programs are administered by the Social Security Administration and can provide the financial assistance individuals may need to survive when they are unable to work.

Kevin Hickey Law Partners has an experienced staff that knows how to navigate the process in order to help you receive the benefits you need. If you think you may qualify for disability benefits or have questions about the process, it is important that you contact an attorney to discuss your options.
