  • $28,000 Recovered in Social Security Benefits for Women with a Learning Disability

    Case Scenario:

    Claimant is an advanced age woman who suffers from a learning disability, Parkinson’s disease, degenerative disc disease and adjustment disorder.  The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation assisted in helping this client secure a job.  Despite that the woman was employed in a suitable work environment, her work activities did not rise to the level of substantial gainful activity.


    This case was handled by Galfand Berger’s attorney, Gabriela Raful.  Evidence and a detailed brief showed that the value of our client’s earnings did not meet the substantial gainful activity amounts.  We were able to recover $28,000 in past due benefits for our client.
