Treading the waters with your Social Security disability claim

Filing for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits can be a daunting task. Already suffering from a debilitating condition that is preventing you from work, the task may seem overwhelming and even impossible.

What to do if my Social Security Disability claim has been denied

Many claims filed with the Social Security Administration for disabling conditions are initially denied. Following a denial, the first step should be recognizing why the claim was denied, and determining whether your case should be accepted.

What is the difference between SSDI and SSI?

If you've been disabled at work, you may be considering applying for Social Security Disability Insurance, also known as SSDI, or Supplemental Security Income, known as SSI. Although both programs are monitored, controlled and funded by the Social Security Administration, they are two separate programs and it is important to recognize and understand the distinctions.

Understanding the SSD benefits appeals process

If you have applied for Social Security Disability benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance program or Supplemental Security Income program and have been denied, do not lose all hope; there is an appeals process that may help you get benefits. In fact, the Social Security Administration denies many applicants their first time around. Yet, despite the many denials, millions of Americans, including many in the Newark area, have been able to get approval and now get the benefits that they need from the program.

Did you know SSD benefits also covers mental conditions?

When most people think of a disability, they think of a physical disability. But sometimes, the worst conditions are not even seen to the naked eye. Mental health conditions affect millions of Americans every year. Thankfully, the Social Security Administration also considers mental conditions for its Social Security Disability benefits program.

Did you know you may qualify for SSDI for your mental condition?

For workers who are injured or ill for at least one year or are not expected to live due to the injury or illness, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has Social Security Disability benefits to help with financial needs of the disabled. There are two forms of aid available, Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, and Supplemental Security Income, or SSI.

Do not let the Social Security process overwhelm you

For many disabled people in New Jersey, as well as in the rest of the country, Social Security disability benefits are a critical source of income, which helps them to meet the various expenses that are associated with living with a disability. However, when it comes to claiming SSD benefits, it is common for a large number of applicants to be overwhelmed by the complicated rules and regulations that the Social Security Administration has in place to determine if an applicant has a legitimate disability.

What counts as a resource under for SSI purposes

Many people in New Jersey are aware that the Social Security Administration offers Supplemental Security Income to those people who are disabled, blind or over 65-years-old. The SSA, however, only extends the benefits after it has determined that the resources of the applicant are limited and, without SSI, they would not be able to pay even the most basic, everyday expenses.
