There are approximately 7 million stroke survivors in the United States living with the after-effects of a stroke, which often include increased healthcare costs and loss of employment income, according to the National Stroke Association.
May is National Stroke Awareness Month, Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano can help stroke survivors and their families navigate the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) process and ease the financial burdens of after-stroke care.
Stroke survivors have many barriers and struggles in the realm of Social Security, and filing a disability claim can be quite challenging. The process of applying for these claims is a foreign process to most stroke survivors. And, oftentimes stroke survivors are working with a little time to fulfill the information requirements.
It’s also important that caregivers or family members are aware that there are helpful resources available for navigating this process. The attorneys at Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano are experienced in Social Security Matters and have an entire department devoted to SSD.
