PCG Human Services™ can help your agency maximize your foster children's access to federal disability benefits by assisting with your advocacy efforts when applying for Supplemental Security Income/Social Security Disability Insurance (SSI/SSDI) from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Benefits of Entitlement to SSI/SSDI

Obtaining SSI/SSDI benefits serves the best interests of the child by

  • Stabilizing the child’s circumstances, which encourages long term placement;
  • Providing financial security to transitional-age youth.

Enrollment onto SSI/SSDI benefits enhances revenue

Over the last 20+ years, we have filed and represented over 30,000 applications, generating over $250 million in additional revenue for our clients.

 

Our SSI/SSDI benefit enrollment services help state and county agencies comply with federal and state regulations.

Our expert staff are well informed of the ever-changing rules and regulations governing the SSA disability program. We continually work to ensure that client agencies stay apprised of these changes through tools such as our referral and informational website found at www.ssireferrals.com where we post the latest news and research pertaining to SSA's programs and services.

The PCG Human Services Approach

Unlike most legal advocates, we interact with SSA in a non adversarial manner. This approach has led us to develop an 'insider's view' of the Social Security process which, coupled with our comprehensive knowledge of the Social Security rules and regulations, allows us to establish unique operating procedures that win more cases in the shortest possible time frames.

 

Our services are designed to meet your needs for the effective pursuit, maintenance, and evaluation of potential eligibility for Social Security disability and survivor's insurance benefits. These services may include

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) applications (Title XVI)
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Applications (Title II)
