When people are affected by a life altering disability or illness, they typically face significant obstacles to gainful employment and stable income. Fortunately, there are programs that support people in these situations by offering monthly benefits.
If you qualify for one of two programs (Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income), you may be able to receive cash benefits and obtain health care services through Medicaid. The federal government does not make it easy to get these benefits. The Social Security Administration rejects a large number of initial applications for Social Security disability (also known as SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
Don't Give Up If Your SSD Or SSI Claim Was Denied
If your SSD or SSI application has been denied, you should not despair. DeAngelis, Dastur & Associates P.C. is a law firm that helps disabled people seek and begin receiving benefits under these two programs. We have helped hundreds of people in Allegheny County and Western Pennsylvania receive benefits — and we want to help you.

- Social Security Disability — provides benefits for people who are unable to work because of disability of illness and who have recent work histories.
- Supplemental Security Income — provides benefits for people who are unable to work because of disability of illness and who do not have recent work histories.
