Benefits Advocacy

Our benefits advocates can help you decide what benefits you are entitled to and complete application forms. We also can help with appeals and hearings if your application for benefits is denied. We also can help you figure out how income you earn from a job will affect your current benefits and plan the best way to gain more financial independence if you want to work.
