Why was my Social Security disability insurance claim denied?

The paperwork and information required to file for Social Security disability insurance is substantial, and the process may seem intimidating to many in New Jersey. Adding to it the fact that you are already suffering from a condition that is preventing you from work can only add to the stress involved in the application process. But let's say you finally did it, and hit submit or dropped off the forms. And now you wait. And wait. And then, you're denied.

Winter is coming, and with it, the possibility of severe injury

Although we are in the middle of autumn, winter will be here in Newark before we know it. And with the winter season, many throughout the United States encounter freezing cold conditions, as well as severe weather such as sleet and snow. Bad weather increases the likelihood of injuries, whether it is a slip and fall or a car accident. In addition, the winter season brings with it an increase in winter recreational activities such as ice skating, snowmobiling, skiing and snowboarding, all of which could result in injury and an inability to work.

Can Social Security disability benefits help you?

Social Security disability insurance is a program run through the Social Security Administration designed to provide financial support to residents of Newark and across the nation who are physically or mentally unable to seek gainful employment. Although the program is not intended to fully replace one's salary or lost wages, it may help provide some support to pay for some of the costs of living without a working paycheck.

Suffer from low back pain and injury? You are not alone

Did you know that low back pain is the leading cause of job related disabilities and among the most common reasons why employees miss work? If you've experienced back pain, join the club, as studies show that approximately 80 percent of Americans have had low back pain at some point in their lives, and over 25 percent say that they have had back pain over the last three months. Newark residents may find the following information on back pain and injury useful.

What is the Social Security Administration's SSI program?

The Social Security Administration has two programs created to financially aid and assist disabled workers, the Social Security Disability Insurance program and the Supplemental Security Income program. The Social Security Disability Insurance program is more popular, with nearly 9 million people currently enrolled, and is available to all United States citizens and qualified workers who have paid into the program. Employers and workers contribute 6.2 percent of their wages to Social Security. From that collection, 0.9 percent goes to the Social Security Disability Insurance program, or SSDI, and 5.3 percent goes to the old age and survivors' benefit fund, or OASI, which is the general fund that also covers Supplemental Security Income.

Bipolar Disorder affects millions of Americans each year

In addition to physical disabilities and medical illnesses, the Social Security Disability Insurance program, run by the Social Security Administration, or SSA, also distributes benefits for people who suffer from mental illnesses that prevent them from working. Among the mental illnesses that qualify for the program are mental retardation, autistic disorders, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Having the proper documents for SSDI benefits a great first step

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits may seem like a long and arduous process. And that's before considering a victim's injury, illness or mental condition, which can further the difficulties of the process. It is no wonder then that applicants struggle to get the benefits they need.

Understanding the risks and symptoms of heart disease

The Social Security Administration's Social Security Disability Insurance program, or SSDI, provides financial relief to Americans suffering from illnesses, injuries and mental conditions that prohibit them from seeking gainful employment. Among one of the more serious illnesses suffered by people in New Jersey and elsewhere around the country is heart disease, which is covered by the SSDI program.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) may qualify for SSDI benefits

According to the Social Security Administration, to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, your debilitating condition must limit your ability to seek gainful employment and prevent you from obtaining and performing at a job.
