With a charming downtown district and handsome turn of the century homes, Katonah is an unincorporated hamlet whose small town aesthetic attracts visitors and new residents looking for a quiet and more affordable alternative to the hustle and bustle of nearby Manhattan. Located within the Town of Bedford in New York’s Westchester County, Katonah is about an hour’s ride on the Metro-North railway from “the City that Never Sleeps.” The area was originally settled as Whitlockville and later renamed Katonah in 1852, in honor of the Native American chief from whom English immigrants purchased the land. Katonah’s notable current and former residents include fashion icon Ralph Lauren, philanthropist George Soros and celebrity homemaker Martha Stewart, who introduced the “Katonah Collection” furniture line in 2007.

A person who is unable to work for one year or more due to a physical or mental impairment – or combination of impairments – is generally eligible for Social Security disability benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA), the federal agency that operates the benefits program, offers two main types of disability benefits. The SSA makes Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments to adults and children who are disabled or blind and have limited income and resources. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), on the other hand, is available to disabled persons, their spouses and children, regardless of income and resources, if the disabled person has made sufficient payments into the Social Security system.

If you are interested in obtaining Social Security disability benefits, you must file a claim with the SSA. The claims process can be both timely and complex. It often involves an administrative hearing before an SSA Administrative Law Judge and, for those whose claims are initially denied, may ultimately require a federal appeal.
