Determining eligibility for Supplemental Security Income payments

When a New Jersey worker can no longer hold a job because of a disability, that person usually can apply for and receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Sometimes, however, a disabled worker may also be eligible for other benefit programs.

Some judges allowed disability claims that don't qualify

Residents of New Jersey may be aware that the number of Social Security claims filed each year is increasing because the population is aging. The huge number of claims results in a processing delay that is causing the state office to reject a claim at least once before it reaches an administrative judge's desk.

Social Security Disability benefits for brain injuries

New Jersey residents are aware that a brain injury can seriously affect a victim's ability to perform daily life tasks. The patient may suffer from memory loss, disability, headaches and the person may be unable to sit, stand, bend or communicate. Since the brain is one of the most complicated organs of the human anatomy, the effects of injury are very complex and can differ in every person.

What are the SSA's Compassionate Allowances?

Many people in New Jersey rely on Social Security benefits for a number of reasons. Working Americans pay Social Security taxes through payroll deduction which in turn provides benefits the event of retirement, disability and illness. In return, the Social Security Administration is obligated to provide benefits to those individuals with health issues that meet the disability standards set by Social Security Administration.

What effects do SSI benefits have on Medicaid and Medicare?

For many people in New Jersey, the supplemental security income they receive as part of the Social Security Administration's program is crucial for everyday expenses. However, not many people know the availing SSI benefits can have its effects on other federal government benefits and programs such as Medicaid, Medicare and state programs that cover Medicare costs. Since the effects can sometimes be quite significant, it is important for an SSI beneficiary to understand how it happens.

Understanding and treating mental disorders in children

Some New Jersey parents have observed certain irregularities in the way their child behave. Erratic behavioral traits could include how the child speaks, the child's ability to learn new things, how that child handles emotionally charged situations or even how the child plays. These unusual symptoms can start as early as the first few years of the child's life and continue to develop throughout the teenage years. In these cases, the child may have some form of mental illness disability.

January 2015 brings small increase in SSD benefits

Many Newark, New Jersey, recipients of Social Security Disability benefits are aware that since 1975, the Social Security Administration has revised payments annually to address the rising cost of living expenses caused by inflation. In 2009 and 2010, the SSA did not announce a Cost-of-Living Adjustment, or COLA, because the there was no recorded inflation.

We can help with Social security disability benefits for illness

Newark, New Jersey, residents would agree that sometimes an illness can be so severe that a person is unable to work. In such cases, that person can apply for Social Security Disability benefits for illnesses. Although many such persons are eligible for SSD benefits, their claims are denied because of lack of evidence that supports their disability. As a result, those people have to cope with financial and emotional challenges that are consequences of not being able to work.

What are the effects of workers' compensation on SSD benefits?

When a worker is injured on the job, the first agency that the person turns to for benefits is workers' compensation insurance. Workers' compensation pays for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. It also compensates an injured worker for temporary and permanent disabilities that may have resulted from the work-related injury. However, it is important to remember that claiming worker's compensation can have its effects on the Social Security Disability benefits of that worker.
