Training: SSI, SSDI, and Long COVID
April 28, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Join The Legal Aid Society and The Law Offices of Barbara B. Comerford for an important joint training on Social Security Insurance (SSI), Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), and benefits for Long COVID patients. Long COVID refers to when people experience COVID-19 symptoms and do not fully recover for months after their COVID diagnosis. This can lead to debilitating symptoms, long term health concerns, and an inability to resume work. The first part of the session will be an overview of SSI/SSDI benefits, eligibility, the application process, and more. Following this overview, Barbara B. Comerford will share information to help social workers, case managers, and clinicians advocate for disability benefits for their clients/patients with Long COVID.
