Jerry Joseph Persky

Sole Practitioner
Los Angeles, California

The Los Angeles law firm of Jerry Persky assists clients with Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income. We will guide you through the process of applying for these vital disability benefits, appealing a rejected application or stopping the termination of your existing benefits.

Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) is a federal program that you pay into as a tax on your income. If a severe illness, injury or chronic condition later leaves you unable to work, you then draw on that program to help make up for your lost income. However, the Social Security Administration is notoriously strict when it comes to approving SSDI benefits, and turns down the majority of applications.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a need-based program that assists individuals who have little or no work history due to a severe, chronic disability. To qualify, you cannot have resources above $2,000. Figuring out if you or a loved one qualifies can be confusing, but we will help you examine your financial situation and consider your options.

To receive the maximum possible benefits, call us. Attorney Jerry J. Persky has been practicing Social Security Disability Insurance law since 1981. He will represent you with honesty and dedication, and will always be available to answer your questions. Our team will work with you closely to make a compelling case that you are entitled to benefits.
