Applying for Disability in Albany, New York
Helping You Get the Benefits You Need
It can be hard to accept your new reality. All you want to do is to provide for you and your family.
Unfortunately, your health issues had other plans.
Holding a job is impossible with your condition. No job means no income, and yet the bills keep coming. It’s almost cruel.
It’s why Social Security Disability benefits are so important.
The monthly checks can be a lifesaver for someone in your situation. They keep you from financial ruin while you focus on feeling your best.
Qualifying, unfortunately, can be extremely difficult. Most applicants are denied on their first try.
You need an experienced disability attorney on your side. At James Trauring & Associates, our mission is to help those in need—people just like you. Let our experienced disability attorneys guide you through the application process.

What You Need to Qualify for SSD in NY
Filing an application can be scary.
Did you fill out everything correctly? Did you include enough evidence? Was it the right evidence?
When something so important—your financial security, not to mention your health—is on the line, the pressure can be overwhelming. We often see the smallest of errors bring back a denial.
The experienced disability lawyers at James Trauring & Associates know the system. We know how to present your case correctly, and what evidence you need. We can help you every step of the way.
Here’s what you need to prove:
- Your health has forced you out of a job
- You can’t easily switch to a different line of work
- Your condition will make you miss a year or more of work
Your application must also be thorough and accurate. Things you must include are medical records, doctor reports and statements from friends, family and co-workers.
We know it can be a stressful time. It’s why we’re in the business of helping New Yorkers in need—people just like you.
Don’t Give Up After a Denial
Getting denied benefits can be heartbreaking.
Don’t they understand your situation? If it was up to you, you wouldn’t be in this spot right now anyway. You’re at a loss.
Don’t give up hope.
There are multiple steps to appeal a Social Security Disability denial. This includes a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ), which is your best shot to win the benefits you need. It’s the only time you’re allowed to plead your case in person.
Don’t risk going it alone. A Government Accountability Office study even found that you’re three times as likely to win benefits if you have representation at your hearing.
Let James Trauring & Associates help you navigate this complicated process. The best part: you don’t owe us a thing unless you win benefits.
