East Brunswick, NJ Disability (SSDI) Lawyer
Managing everything that comes along with a disability or illness can be stressful, especially if you’re left without the ability to earn a regular income. When that happens, you shouldn’t be forced to defend the benefits that are rightfully yours. Unfortunately, it’s usually necessary with the piles of paperwork and red tape required from the federal government to prove to them you’re not physically or mentally capable of working.

What is Social Security Disability Coverage?
The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. They are both administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria (set by the government) may qualify for benefits under either program.
“Disability” under Social Security is based on your inability to work. The government considers you disabled under Social Security rules if:
- You cannot do work that you did before
- The government decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s)
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death
Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are “insured,” meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.
Supplemental Security Income pays benefits based on financial need.
