Viner Disability Law is honored to represent disabled workers in their claims for Social Security disability benefits. Our attorneys understand that even when a claimant receives the disability benefits to which they are entitled, it often remains extremely difficult or impossible for a disabled worker to support adequately their children in their pursuit of post-secondary education. For this reason, Viner Disability has established the Viner Disability Law Scholarship, which will provide in its inaugural year two $500 scholarships to the sons and daughters of disabled workers to assist them in purchasing books and supplies and paying for living and other necessary expenses associated with pursuing post-secondary study at a two- or four-year institution.
In 2017, Viner Disability Law will award two $500 scholarships to the sons or daughters of disabled workers for use during the Fall 2017 semester. Awards will be announced on July 1, 2017.
