We are here to listen to your story.
We want to learn about your hopes, dreams, and preferences.

We search through available resources, put together options so you can make informed decisions and then help connect you to the services you choose.
This may include a benefits check-up, to uncover what you are eligible for.
Have you been denied benefits and need to appeal a decision?
We can help negotiate with public agencies, medical offices, or insurance companies to resolve problems. Although our Benefit Specialists cannot help complete the disability application, they can explain the process and how appeals work if you are denied benefits.
