On Tuesday, July 28, 2015, Partner Tom Giordano, Jr. spoke to local union leaders at the New York State Pipe Trades 108th Annual Convention in Lake George, NY. He discussed the Social Security disability program and members’ rights to benefits in-depth.
“There are many union members, especially those who are close to retiring, struggling to work because of their medical conditions,” he said. “It’s extremely important that their leaders know about Social Security disability. They can pass along this life-changing information to their membership, even those who have retired within the past five years, so they can get the benefits they’ve worked for their whole lives.”
The leaders at the convention represent 300,000 union workers throughout New York state.
