DISABILITY INSURANCE ADVOCACY-Assessment, Preparation and Action!

Available Nationwide!



Are you suffering from depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety that's so bad it keeps you from working...?

Bipolar disorder; Depression; Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder; Parkinson’s Disease; PTSD;

Fibromyalgia; Panic Disorder



If you suffer from any of these or any other psychiatric or neurologically-based disorder, keep reading…



Disability Advocacy-available nationwide


We “GET” what you’re going through.

We understand the many challenges that accompany a disability caused by depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety.

We understand your emotional and physical stress, and we know how frustrating it is to tackle

even the simplest of tasks. That’s why we’ve incorporated Social Security disability advocacy into our practice. 


We help people like you, through our professional associates in disability advocacy, navigate Social Security’s

complicated disability system and get you the benefits that you’ve paid for.

I'm sure a lot of.  These pages contain time-tested articles and proven tools by people who are gifted with seeing the

delicate nuances of life that average folks like us, fail to notice. They are exemplary at helping you to get from where you are…

to where you want to be.


We “GET” how the system works.

Over the last 20 years I have assessed hundreds of people for psychiatrically-related disability benefits and our disability

advocacy associate has helped more than 70,000 people nationwide receive their entitled disability income by expertly

navigating a very complicated and arduous system. Their staff of disability professionals has accumulated

hundreds of years of direct Social Security experience.


That’s all they do, and that’s why they have a 97% award rate!


We “GET” you what you deserve.

Social Security Disability Insurance isn’t a handout — it’s an insurance program that your FICA taxes paid for!

If you can’t work because of a disability, you are entitled to this money.

Since 1984, our Disability Advocacy associate has arranged the return of over $1.2 billion

to deserving people just like you.


We only “GET” paid if you get paid!

You stay at home while we and our partner do the work. As the first step, you will complete a simple form and Dr. Shery will

do the preliminary assessment.  Upon deciding that you have a case, you will be referred to our disability advocacy section

as the second step.  Then all forms will be completed by telephone and mail, and to save you hours of drudgery,

all the necessary documents and medical records will be collected for you.


Assessment, Preparation and Action!


And, best of all, you will only be charged a fee if you receive your Social Security award. If you are awarded, the only fee is a

one-time percentage of any retroactive (back) benefits that you are due.


These services are available nationwide and you have no upfront costs!
