As many of you may have heard on March 20, 2020, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York announced that he is ordering all non-essential businesses to reduce their in-person workforce by 100%. In other words, we have been ordered not to have any employees physically present in our offices. We are making every effort to allow our employees to work from home in this extraordinary emergency situation. However, we expect that we may encounter some technical issues during this transition and ask for your patience.
In light of the closing of our physical office, it might be easier for you to reach us via email and suggest that you attempt to contact us by email if you can. We understand that not everyone has an email account and rest assured we will continue to answer our phones. We may have some technical problems at first but we will be working hard to keep things running as smooth as possible. Currently, the Social Security Administration is not offering any in person services to the public because of the emergency. This includes live hearings. Where possible, the administration is offering telephone hearings instead of live hearings. While telephone hearings are not ideal, we do believe that they are the best solution in the current environment to make sure that your case is heard as soon as is reasonably possible. As a result, we are recommending that you consent to such a hearing at this time.
We will continue to make sure we properly develop your case and we are hopeful that this crisis will pass quickly and that the effects of this emergency will have only a minimal impact on you, our staff and all of our communities.

Americans like to work. We like to earn our own way. And most of us do exactly that for most of our lives. But some of us aren't that lucky. Some of us get hurt, or get sick, and we simply can't go on working. That's why there is a Disability benefits program at Social Security. If you're a hard working person who has paid the required amount of your FICA (Social Security) taxes, and your doctor says you simply can't work anymore, you're probably entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.
Many people who cannot work due to their disability and are having trouble making ends meet. At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, our attorneys know the financial strain this can put on you and your family. While Social Security Disability benefits are an important resource, the Social Security program rules assume that working families have access to other resources to provide support during periods of short-term disabilities — including workers' compensation, veterans’ benefits, private disability insurance and savings. At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, we can talk to you about those options too. We can also help injured veterans find the support they need.
Your disability must last or be expected to last for at least one year or result in death in order for you to qualify for Social Security Disability. This is a strict requirement imposed by Congress in the Social Security Act.
At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, we work with clients all over America. Our decades of experience and our strength make life a little more comfortable for our clients, while they are enduring the long waits of the Social Security process. We have some clients who come to us because they know that, unlike other firms, we will take a case from the very beginning. They know we’ll do a professional job of filing initial paperwork and completing the confusing Social Security Disability forms. We have other clients who have already been denied SSD benefits and come to us for help. We even have some clients who have already qualified for SSD and must prove that their disabilities still exist.
Between the two partners, Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, we have over 80 years of representing Social Security claimants.
Our firm’s structure allows us to bring in highly qualified attorneys to win your Social Security Disability claims. And it puts in motion the development of new technologies, like video conferencing, to make Administrative Law Judge hearings more convenient for our clients.
The Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder is located in New York, but we extend our reach across America. No matter where you live we can represent you in your Social Security Disability claim.
We’re successful because we deal with our clients powerfully, professionally, and personally. While we cannot change the unfortunate circumstances of your disability, we can take over the burden of making the benefits process work for you. As Charles Binder says, “We’ll deal with the government. You have enough to worry about.”
We get paid only when we win your case. Our fee is set by law. It is 25% of your past-due benefits. This means that you don't have to hesitate to pick up the phone and call us. There is no reason to put off getting the help you need just because you're feeling strapped for cash. Our fee is the same no matter when we begin our work for you. Let us do our job by hiring us early in the process.
If you have already been denied at the reconsideration level or at the Administrative Law Judge level, we will work hard to win your case. For complete details on our fees, please click here, or ask for the pamphlet called "Our Fees."
