How to File for Social Security Disability in NJ Were you injured and now need Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)? If so, you need to know how you can file for Social Security disability benefits in New Jersey. Watch this video to learn more.

If you have been informed that your injury will disable from working for at least six months, and there is medical documentation to demonstrate that you will be out of work for at least one year, you are entitled to file for Social Security disability benefits. You can do this in one of the following three ways:

  1. File a claim online
  2. Visit your local Social Security office
  3. Call 1-800-772-1213

While you can file for benefits on your own, an injury or disability is overwhelming enough by itself. It is best to leave the paperwork and deadlines to the professionals at Gaylord Popp, LLC.  Unfortunately, not everyone gets approved, and you will need someone on your side who can appeal to request reconsideration or a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. Call the Central New Jersey Social Security disability attorneys at 888-716-8086 or 609-771-8611 for help securing benefits today.
