Social Security Benefits

New Jersey Social Security (SSDI) Benefits Lawyer

When you suffer an injury that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI), also referred to as disability insurance benefits (DIB) from the Social Security Administration. Before obtaining these benefits, you must meet certain eligibility requirements. At Abromson & Carey in Newark, New Jersey, we practice almost exclusively in the area of Social Security and disability benefits. To learn more about receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or SSDI benefits, contact us to schedule a free initial consultation.

Social Security Disability Benefits

People who are considered disabled under the Social Security Act are eligible to receive a variety of federal benefits. The process of applying for these benefits can be a challenging one. You will not have to go through this alone if you hire an experienced SSDI benefits attorney. For over 22 years, we have been helping disabled people receive:

  • Disability insurance benefits – supplements income lost because of inability to work
  • Disabled widow's, widower's or surviving divorced spouse – available to a disabled spouse over the age of 50 and named as a beneficiary on a deceased spouse’s insurance policy
  • Disabled child’s benefits – available to children who become disabled before the age of 22 and are children of deceased individuals or people who were drawing SSDI benefits
  • Medicare benefits – available to people who have been receiving SSDI benefits for 24 months

Supplemental Security Income Benefits

If you have not worked for a significant period, you may still be eligible for Social Security benefits. SSI benefits are available for indigent individuals who are blind, disabled or elderly. These people are not eligible for SSDI benefits. We will assist you in receiving:

  • Supplemental Security Income benefits
  • Supplemental Security Income child's disability benefits

If you have been injured and are unable to work, you may qualify to receive SSDI benefits. To find out more, contact Abromson & Carey to schedule a free initial consultation with a lawyer.
