CDG is a Consulting Services company offering Diversified Services including Turn Key Nonprofit Business Startups, Grant Writing, Financial, and Writing Services. Today’s business started 40 years ago when I was the founding director of South East Consortium for Special Services in Mamaroneck, NY. The mission was to provide therapeutic recreation programs and leisure-related services to children and adults with disabilities and other special needs living in 9 neighboring communities.
Being the founder of any organization, whether for profit or non-profit, requires that you wear many corporate hats and work long hours. You have many limited resources which include, but are not limited to, money and staff. Having been the founding director of 5 non-profit organizations, here is a list of other tasks that led CDG to becoming a diversified services company:
- Developing storylines, dialogue, lesson plans, and all program content
- Developing training materials, monthly reports, and annual reports
- Writing all copy for and carrying out an advertising campaign
- Working with federal and state agencies and the US Congress
- Designing and developing over 100 health care and social services programs for disabled youth and adults, medically compromised youth and adults, female substance abusers and their children born addicted or affected by drugs, and socio-economically disadvantaged persons
- Raising over $100 million in grants to support these initiatives
CDG Disability Representatives (CDGDR)
CDGDR is an independent contractor supporting the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) mission to Assist Eligible Children and Adults in Securing Social Security Disability Benefits. In 2021, the number of SSDI applications was 1,800,400. The number of claimants receiving SSDI benefit awards was 572,000 or 32%. The number of claimants being denied was 1,228,400 or 68%.
The 3 reasons that 1,228,400 claimants were denied SSDI benefit awards include applications missing data and incomplete medical information, including forms. The third reason is that most claimants filed on line.
On May 16, 2022, the CDC stated that recent estimates in the United States show that about one in six, or about 17%, of children aged 3 through 17 years have one or more developmental disabilities. Developmental disabilities are a group of conditions because of an impairment in physical, learning, language, or behavior areas. These conditions begin during the developmental period, may affect day-to-day functioning, and usually last throughout a person’s lifetime.
CDGDR also works with insurance company claimants who have Long Term Disability Insurance (LTDI) policies. LTDI is an insurance policy (not part of Social Security) that pays you, the policyholder, direct monthly benefits that replace a portion of your income if you become too sick or hurt to work. Social Security requires insurance company claimants who receive LTDI benefits to file for SSDI benefits.
CDGDR’s mission is to assist claimants in collecting, organizing and presenting the medical and other information necessary for being awarded the Social Security benefits for which they are applying. Our case management system has all the current versions of all SSA forms. It monitors and informs CDGDR of critical dates with times associated with the progress of the claimant’s case. We offer our claimants, whose disability claims are awarded, the following complimentary services:
- A Financial Planning session not to exceed 2 hours
- Tax Return Preparation for the year in which the award was received
Fees received for filing for disability benefits are set by the Social Security Administration. If you do not qualify for a disability benefit award, there is no charge for our services.
