Many New Jersey residents are unable to seek gainful employment due to various disabilities. Such disabilities may be physical disabilities or even psychological and mental disabilities that hamper their ability to work. Supplemental Security Income may be provided to disabled people in order to help them maintain their households.
Largely Supplemental Security Income is claimed by those disabled people who have never been in the workforce. In certain cases a Supplemental Security Income claimant may have been previously employed but does not have the necessary work experience to claim social security disability benefits. Thus Supplemental Security Income is often regarded as a welfare program initiated under federal law. The attorneys at Abromson & Carey, Attorneys at Law have had decades of practice representing the claims of their disabled clients.
Supplemental Security Income is a need based program where the means of the claimant is determined. The social security representatives may investigate the household income for this purpose. In case the claimant’s average income as well as the person’s physical or mental disability qualifies for aid, Supplemental Security Income may be provided.
The disabled person as well as the person’s relatives might often feel burdened by the legal intricacies of claiming Supplemental Security Income. In some cases, the applicant’s claim for supplemental income may be rejected. Filing for appeals can also be an onerous task. However, having professional legal help like the New Jersey Social Security lawyers at Abromson & Carey, Attorneys at Law, may help overturn the authority’s decision with the help of medical records as well as income reports.
