Nestled in the banks of the Hudson River, Yonkers is New York’s fourth largest city with almost 196,000 people calling it home. The city—Westchester’s oldest—is named after an early Dutch settler who erected a sawmill in what is now Yonkers in the late 1640s. Landmarks include the century-old Yonkers Raceway and expansive Hudson River Museum. Yonkers is the birthplace of Midnight Cowboy star and Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight, singer Mary J. Blige and FM radio inventor Edwin Howard Armstrong.

Hermann Law Group, PLLC is a Yonkers Social Security disability law firm. Our disability attorneys have over 50 years of experience representing thousands of New York Social Security disability claimants. Contact our firm toll free at 877-773-3030 or call our Westchester number at 914-286-3030 for a consultation at no cost to you. You can also use our online form request that our office contact you.

More than 2 million people file for Social Security benefits each year because they are disabled and are unable to work for 12 months or more. Unfortunately, about 65% of all initial claims are rejected nationwide, but only about 600,000 of those are appealed annually. That means that about a million people a year are so confused by the process or discouraged by their first denial that they give up!.

As local disability lawyers, we know the staff at the local Social Security offices, the staff attorneys at the hearing offices, and the judges who decide the cases—and they know and respect us. We proudly maintain a success rate of over 90% for all decisions received over the past twelve months.

Whether you are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits (available for persons unable to work for at least one year due to disability) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) (payments to adults and children who are disabled and have limited income and resources), we will review or help you complete all necessary forms, and we will file them electronically for you—a service that can shorten the wait for a decision. We will also work with your doctors and health care providers to collect the medical information necessary to prove your case. If your case is appealed to a hearing, we will develop your claims file and make sure that you are fully prepared to testify. We will always be available to answer your questions and provide advice regarding various benefits to which you may be entitled. We will also review your benefits once they are awarded, and make sure that you continue to receive your benefits so long as you are unable to work.
