Social Security disability rules in flux, but attorneys can help

Seeking and receiving Social Security disability benefits have changed for claimants in New Jersey and throughout the nation. Tougher standards may have lowered the number of beneficiaries receiving disability payments to approximately 8.8 million which is the lowest number in almost five years.

More restrictions may be on the horizon. However, restrictions have not lessened the need that beneficiaries have for these essential financial benefits.

The Social Security Administration recently issued new regulations eliminated the treating-physician rule which gave substantial weight to the claimant's doctor's report supporting their disability claim. This new rule will make it more difficult to prove their entitlement to disability benefits.

Moreover, as mentioned in a previous post on this blog, Congress is also considering bills that, if enacted, will restrict the time that beneficiaries can receive SSD benefits. These bills often contain return to work requirements.

Since 1985, our firm has assisted New Jersey residents with complying with application requirements, appealing denials and keeping their benefits. We are familiar and experience with Social Security Administration requirements, particularly its technical medical criteria and presenting the evidence that support legitimate claims.

Our attorneys are experienced with advocating rights in legal forum such as the SSA administrative hearings that are governed by specific rules and federal court appeals. This may be especially important as federal requirements change and may need to be litigated.

Our firm has the knowledge to provide you with options and help assure that your rights are protected and considered by the SSA. We can help assure that your rights are advocated for until all legal appeals are resolved.

This legal experience is important because of the different requirements governing varying claims and the chance that these eligibility requirements may be even further restricted. Please visit our "About SSDI and SSI" webpage to learn about how we may assist you.
