    Hi tadah

    I'm not from NY, I'm from PA. so don't know how long it would be there, but I would recommend a lawyer right from the start.

    If you search on this subject you will see that almost everybody has had to get one sooner or later.

    I think sooner would be better then later. I've hired one myself and will be applying for ssdi this month.

    This way the lawyer will have all the info right from the beggining of the process, and will not have to dig for all of the paperwork that is involved.

    Take Care
