If you believe that you have a condition that will prevent you from working for at least one year or may result in your death, you need to consult with a New Jersey disability benefits attorney to understand your rights and to determine your next steps.
You may be eligible to receive disability benefits under the Social Security Disability program or the Supplemental Security Income program.
The Social Security offices will evaluate all relevant data, including details from your medical provider, to determine whether or not you meet the threshold for disability benefits.
Once your application has been reviewed in full, you will receive an initial decision. If approved for benefits the first time you submit an application, your approval letter will explain when you can expect to receive your funds.
If you are not approved, however, you need to take action quickly in order to protect your rights. You have a limited time period during which you can file for an appeal and having an attorney help you with this process may be instrumental.
In order to preserve your rights and increase the chances of a successful application, or management of a denied claim, you need a New jersey disability attorney.
Our law firm strongly recommends that you file your initial social security claim by going directly to the Social Security Administration website and submitting an online application or by visiting your local social security office and scheduling an appointment to meet with an official social security representative.
The process of filing for Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Income benefits can be confusing if you do not know what to expect.
Consult with a New Jersey disability benefits lawyer to ease some of the confusion. Having a point of contact you can communicate with immediately is also helpful in the event that your application is denied.
