Social Security Disability
Let Our New Jersey Legal Team Help You Get and Keep SSA Disability Benefits
If you become seriously ill or injured and can’t work, the future becomes very uncertain in a hurry. What will tomorrow bring? How will you pay the bills? The Social Security Administration (SSA) Disability program is designed for people like you. Millions of Americans apply for and receive monthly benefits that help them to survive.
Unfortunately, not everyone who applies is accepted. In fact, over two-thirds of all first time applications are denied. And all too often applicants give up after this first denial and face very tough financial decisions.

The Types of Social Security Disability Benefits
There are two basic types of SSA disability benefits available to all Americans. Here is a quick overview to help you understand more about each.
- Social Security Disability Insurance – SSDI is designed for disabled people who have worked and paid Social Security taxes into the system. Your monthly benefit is calculated based on the amount of your earnings before becoming disabled. As a former worker, you will also receive Medicare insurance coverage after you have received benefits for two years.
- Supplemental Security Income – SSI is a disability program for a disabled or blind adult or child based on financial need. To qualify, you must prove that your income and resources are limited. The monthly benefit is based on your individual need and some states will kick in additional funds.
Do You Really Need a New Jersey Lawyer in Your Social Security Disability Case?
Strictly speaking, you can visit the Social Security Disability website and/or your local SSA office and do it yourself. But many applicants run into problems quickly and get discouraged.
In addition, your chances of success increase greatly with legal assistance. In 2000, 64% of applicants facing disability hearings in California with lawyers won their cases, compared to only 40% of those who did not have a legal representative.
A Social Security Administration disability lawyer can make sure that you receive the highest benefit amount possible and secure all of the back pay to which you are entitled.
Finally, we handle all our SSA disability cases on a “contingency” basis, meaning that our fees are based on the success we have in winning your case. And your initial consultation is always completely free.
