For disabled New Jersey residents, communication can be key

In a recent post we reported how a man almost lost his home while waiting for Social Security disability benefits for over four years, all after a heart attack rendered him unable to work.

As this blog has reported previously, sometimes the most important check that a New Jersey resident gets when he or she qualifies for federal Social Security Disability benefits is the check covering back benefits due and owing.

A recent post on this blog discussed how the Social Security Administration decides whether an injured New Jersey resident is really too hurt to return to work. Despite the stories of people faking or exaggerating injuries, the reality is that it can be hard for an injured Newark resident, however sincere, to prove his or her injuries to the satisfaction of the Administration.

What sort of actions would constitute Social Security fraud?

One of last week's posts on this blog discussed an investigation in to a Social Security fraud ring that ended in several arrests, many of those arrested being former law enforcement officers that allegedly claimed falsely that they were disabled in an effort to get paid SSD benefits.
