Legal Resources for People With a Disability
NLS helps people with serious disabilities qualify for and keep Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and/or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits from the Social Security Administration. NLS also helps individuals who have underpayment or overpayment issues.
NLS received a special Disability Advocacy Project (DAP) Innovation Grant, which will increase legal representation of children and age-18 redeterminations in social security disability cases.
Disabilities come with their own legal issues, and these often can overlap or conflict with other areas of the law. Follow the links below for resources specific to legal issues that pertain to disabilities.
