Seeking SSD Or SSI Benefits?
Our New Jersey social security disability lawyer at the Law Offices of Jeffrey I. Amtman helps people who have been seriously disabled and cannot work. Our Englewood, New Jersey, Social Security Disability attorney has 32 years of experience representing helping the disabled apply for benefits through the Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security (SSI) programs. In particular, we assist people whose initial application for benefits has been denied, attending hearings on their behalf and ensuring that all paperwork is properly completed.
What Is Social Security Disability?
If you have worked and paid into the Social Security Insurance system during five of the last 10 years, and are disabled by a permanent accident injury or chronic illness, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. The SSD program requires that you be unable to work, or anticipate that you will be unable to work, for at least 12 months. The process for receiving benefits involves an initial application, a reconsideration after the claim is denied (and this happens almost routinely), and an administrative hearing.
How Experienced Social Security Disability Lawyers Can Help
While many people are approved for SSD benefits after going through the application, reconsideration, and hearing process, many are denied. In addition to helping with the initial application and attending the hearing, our knowledgeable SSD attorney will appeal your disability claim if it is denied. Our law firm’s success rate for the initial application process and in appeal is excellent. If you need an experienced SSD or SSI lawyer with a good track record, contact our law firm, Law Offices of Jeffrey I. Amtman. Call 201-567-7574 or 866-592-4136.
