Social Security/SSI

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has many rules and regulations for determining disability and applying for federal Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), also known as Title II, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Title XVI. The Disability Benefits page is designed to share information and regulatory updates with advocates funded by New York State’s Disability Advocacy Program (DAP) to represent claimants who have been denied benefits.

If you are an applicant or beneficiary looking for basic information on eligibility and the appeals process, go to SSA’s website at www.ssa.gov.
