Why DSS? We Work for You

We strive to work towards getting our clients the disability benefits that they need. While the end goal remains the same for our individual clients, the fact is that no two cases are alike. Moreover, the process of achieving approval differs from one person to another. With extensive knowledge and experience, DSS offers its clients the best to meet your case objective.

We do not get paid until you do. Our team will never petition to collect additional fees. Our livelihood depends on your livelihood.  Let our specialized training provide you the very best service. From the very first application to gathering all the evidence – the team is here for you.
