Supplemental Security Income for noncitizens, Part II

The previous post on this blog regarding Supplemental Security Income discussed the various requirements a noncitizen residing anywhere in the United States, including New Jersey, must meet to be eligible. If a noncitizen wants the SSI application process to go more smoothly, then being familiar with all of the requirements can help given that the Social Security Administration's rules and regulations are often complicated.

Supplemental Security Income for noncitizens, Part I

Like many states, New Jersey has large numbers of noncitizens from other countries who live and work in the state. According to rules established by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, some of these foreign citizens are eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income through the Social Security Administration if they meet certain criteria.

Social Security benefits are available for many types of illness

Social Security Disability benefits for illness generally are given to all those who prove eligibility. Prolonged and grave illness and disability may render a person unemployable. Years of medical expenses can become a major predicament for the victim as well as family members. Families often struggle to pay medical expenses in such cases. Social Security benefits are granted for disability as long as it meets the eligibility criteria.

Which documents are required for New Jersey SSI?

When a New Jersey resident wishes to apply for supplemental security income (SSI), certain documents must be produced at the time of application. The list provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA) is fairly long, but the individual applying for SSI benefits may be able to complete the application by supplying only some of the documentation requested. If required, the SSA provides assistance to potential SSI recipients in gathering the necessary documents.

What is the future of the SSD benefits program?

There are many people in New Jersey who receive payments from the Social Security Administration in the form of Social Security disability benefits. Many of those people may be aware that the Social Security Disability Insurance program has been facing financial difficulties for quite some time now. In fact, predictions suggest that the SSDI trust fund will be exhausted by the year 2016 if Congress does not take immediate corrective action.

Social Security benefits for children with mental illnesses

Every parent in New Jersey with a child suffering from a mental illness should know when the child is eligible for Social Security benefits from the government and how to receive such benefits. Childhood mental disorders refer to all types of mental disorders which can be diagnosed and begin in childhood. Mental disorders among children are described as significant changes in the way in which a child learns, behaves and handles emotions.

Can I claim Social Security benefits for work-related injuries?

Many New Jersey Social Security benefit claimants suffered injuries during the course of employment. Work-related injuries can often lead to severe as well as prolonged disabling conditions. State laws provide Social Security Disability benefits for those who suffer work-related injuries.

New Jersey lawyers can help SSD benefits claimants

Mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, anxiety or depression may cause havoc with a person's social, personal and professional life. Many New Jersey residents have suffered through prolonged periods of unemployment and financial adversity arising out of a mental illness disability.

What is the SSA's definition of cardiovascular impairment?

As many Newark, New Jersey, residents know, the Social Security Disability benefits program, run by the Social Security Administration, covers a number of illnesses. Among those, cardiovascular impairments are listed under Section 4.00 of the SSA's Blue Book. The SSA, however, has its own set of definitions for qualifying illnesses. To file a successful application and thereby receive benefits, it is important that an applicant has complete understanding of those definitions.
