Determining Continued Eligibility for SSD benefits

Once someone becomes disabled, they often think primarily about if they will qualify for benefits and how the application process works. However, it is equally important for New Jersey residents to understand what happens after an application for SSD benefits is approved and what kind of requirements exist for continuing to receive benefits.

Social Security disability's future uncertain despite low COLAs

Disability resulting from unexpected injury or illness often takes New Jersey residents by surprise. Most people never plan on becoming disabled and, as a result, few people have a plan regarding what they will do if they become disabled and can no longer work. For this reason, Social Security disability functions as an important social safety net, but the program is not without its challenges.

What is the SSD Compassionate Allowance Initiative?

Although many, if not most, New Jersey residents never expect to become disabled, a great number of people will experience short- or long-term disability at some point in their lives. The Social Security program provides disability benefits for people suffering a total disability that prevents them from working or adjusting to another kind of work because of a serious medical condition. The SSA's definition of disability requires that the disability last for more than one year or ultimately be expected to cause a person's death in order to qualify an applicant for benefits.

Annual screening event seeks awareness of clinical depression

People dealing with a disability make up a large number of those receiving social security benefits, even though many people probably think of social security only in terms of retirement. There are a range of disabilities that can qualify New Jersey residents to receive social security disability benefits, including mental conditions. Benefits related to mental conditions, such as clinical depression, can be extremely critical for those suffering from mental illness.
