If you have a disabling illness, we can help

When New Jersey residents think about social security disability, many of them probably think that benefits are only available for those who become disabled due to an injury. However, the reality is that social security disability for illness provides financial assistance for individuals who can no longer work due to a range of qualifying illnesses.

Many different diseases and medical problems qualify for social security disability benefits. Examples include fibromyalgia, back problems, multiple sclerosis, pulmonary problems, mental illness, chronic pain, heart disease, seizures, liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and many others. Proving that you are eligible for benefits involves proving not only that you have a qualifying medical illness or condition but also establishing that you cannot work as a result of that condition.

Some illnesses are more difficult to diagnose than others. Chronic pain, for example, can be very debilitating and dramatically affect your ability to work, but it can be difficult for doctors to recognize or understand. If you are suffering from an illness, you are often the one who knows best about the effects the illness has on your life. Our firm can assist you in filing for benefits by working with you and a medical team to get your illness diagnosed and provide the medical evidence needed to get your claim approved.

Filing a claim due to illness requires more than a recitation of facts related to your medical condition, however. We will work with you to get the full context of your illness and present a human-centered story in your claim for benefits because we understand how difficult it can be to deal with a chronic, disabling illness. Even if your initial claim has already been denied or if an illness has just recently been diagnosed, we can start work to prepare your claim or revise it for a greater chance of success.
