NLS Expands Capacity to Help Access SSI or SSDI Benefits

NLS provides free legal advice and representation to eligible individuals when their SSI (Supplemental Security Benefits) or SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits) are wrongfully denied or terminated.

NLS was recently awarded the Disability Advocacy Project (DAP) Innovation Grant, which will help the organization expand legal assistance and representation to children and young adults with disabilities.
