Our Mission

It is our goal to help you receive the Railroad Retirement, Social Security Disability, Medicare and Supplement Security Income benefits to which you are entitled, in the most efficient and expedited manner. We strive to deliver the most courteous and timely service to our clients.

Disability Advocates is an organization of non-attorney representatives that provides caring and professional services to clients seeking Railroad Retirement and Social Security disability benefits. For more specific information on Railroad Retirement please select the Railroad Retirement Disability Services option on the left margin. Both Railroad Retirement and Social Security Disability are federal programs administered by the Railroad Retirement Board and Social Security Administration, respectively, that provide financial assistance to people who are forced to leave the workforce before retirement due to a chronic mental or physical disability. Our extensive knowledge of medical issues, vocational considerations and the Railroad Retirement and Social Security Disability systems makes it possible for us to help our clients receive disability benefits. Over 95% of our clients have been awarded benefits after being denied in applications made without representation. Contact us right now for a free no obligation consultation to assess your eligibility for Railroad Retirement and/or Social Security Disability benefits. Disability Advocates is available to represent clients who are seeking Railroad Retirement and/or Social Security benefits in all 50 states.

We are a full service office, specializing in Railroad Retirement and Social Security issues. We represent claimants before the Railroad Retirement Board and Social Security Administration, at Administrative Law Judge hearings and at the Appeals Council. We will help you with your case. It is never to early to be represented in your Railroad Retirement or Social Security case. We will develop the medical, non-medical and vocational record in your case with the necessary medical evidence, medical assessments from your research and briefing.

There are very specific issues which the judge must evaluate and decide in a Railroad Retirement or Social Security case. We will make certain those issues are addressed and resolved to your advantage and in the most favorable light possible. We will attend your hearing with you and protect your interests before the Administrative Law Judge, Vocational Expert and Medical Expert, as called by the judge to testify at your hearing. Railroad Retirement and Social Security law, rules and regulations are complex and ever changing. To win your case you must be up-to-date and familiar with Social Security procedures, practices, rulings and regulations. That is why we specialize in handling only Railroad Retirement and Social Security cases.

The philosophy of Disability Advocates is to provide concerned, efficient service to our Railroad Retirement and Social Security Disability clients. We always keep in mind that many of our clients are in great pain and discomfort due to the ailments which cause their disability.  Although to some firms, it may be just another case, we remember that it may be a life of pain and anxiety to our clients. We keep our clients well informed on the progress of their cases through the Railroad Retirement Board and Social Security Administration system.

We are direct and to the point with our clients, letting them know the particular strengths and weaknesses of their claims. Disability Advocates has extensive experience working with medical records and physicians and we consider ourselves a great help in evaluating our clients' cases. Today's advances in communication  and research makes our services more efficient.  We take full advantage of the efficiency of email, faxing, the Internet, computerized research, computerized data banks on job information, and more. But we never loose sight of the human element. A human touch can make our clients' lives more comfortable and helps to show our genuine care for our client. We can provide service on Social Security claims anywhere in the United States. We frequently represent clients who do not live near one of our offices by using telephone, fax and email.

If we are unable to win our client's case without a scheduled hearing, we will travel to your local area of residence where the hearing will be held. We feel this will ensure that the representative who appears with you at hearing and represents you will have worked on your case and be thoroughly familiar with your individual situation. This also assures that your representation will be skilled, effective and professional in every way.
