Mount Laurel, NJ Disability (SSDI) Lawyer
Filing for Social Security Disability coverage can be a lengthy and stressful process, especially in combination with the hassles that come along with having a serious injury or illness in the first place. But coverage, for many, is necessary since they no longer have the ability to bring in a steady income – and not to mention have medical bills on top of all the daily necessities of living.
Unfortunately, filing for Social Security Disability benefits is different for everyone. Despite your circumstances, the Social Security Administration requires that you prove to them you are unable to work any longer, doing this can be easier said than done.
Luckily, Young, Marr and Associates understands the importance of Social Security Disability benefits and we are committed to getting you the benefits you need. We have been helping clients successfully gain Social Security Disability coverage for decades and we’ve represented thousands of clients during that time.

You need an experienced attorney fighting for you. Like all of our cases, we will handle yours courteously, honestly and timely. Young, Marr and Associates has the knowledge required to get you the benefits you deserve.
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.
