Sixty year old Jaqueline Gedin suffered from numerous ailments which left her unable to work. With no income she soon became homeless. Ms. Gedin’s claim for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability was filed in 2006, but was denied despite the severity of her ailments. LSGMI gathered the necessary medical evidence and represented Ms. Gedin at an administrative hearing, arguing that the evidence clearly showed that she suffered from severe impairments that rendered her unable to work. As a result of LSGMI’s advocacy, Ms. Gedin received a favorable decision and was awarded the maximum amount of SSI benefits, as well as a retroactive award of almost $12,000. With LSGMI’s help, Ms. Gedin is no longer homeless.
