What our clients say about us

We appreciate the opportunity to help you get the benefits you deserve

What a superb job!

Obtaining Social Security benefits for the disabled is an area that needs both legal and medical input. Over the decades, I have heard many speeches on the topic, but none as well organized and delivered as yours. What a superb job!

I am a school social worker

I cannot say enough positive things about Cliff Weisburg and the team at Social Security Counseling Center. I am a school social worker who works with severely disabled students and their families. I rely on the information that I have received from Cliff to direct my parents in the process of applying for SSI. I have attended both basic and advanced trainings that Cliff has presented on Social Security and have come away with knowledge and materials that help my families navigate this process. Cliff has also come to our agency fair and has given presentations, giving valuable information to our parents as well as answering any question they might have. Whenever I have a question concerning Social Security I know I can count on Cliff to have an answer. He and the staff at Social Security Counseling Center are ready and able to help you with all of your Social Security related needs.

I look forward to working with you again!

I want to thank you personally for speaking at the program MS: My Choice and having your table available for participants to visit. It is great that you took the time out on a Saturday to volunteer for the MS Society. Your presentation was very well received and appreciated. Those who participated in your presentation commented on how much information they gathered from your speech. Participants were also very happy to receive your free gifts and have a chance to speak with you about their own personal concerns. I look forward to working with you again!
