Assistance with applying for SSI benefits

The Social Security system has more elements that many people realize. In addition to retirement benefits, Social Security also provides disability benefits and SSI benefits.

How does one appeal after being denied Social Security?

When a person in New Jersey is suffering from issues that they believe make them eligible for Social Security disability benefits, it can be a significant letdown if they apply and receive a denial or of they were getting disability and the decision was made to conclude it. Being denied Social Security might lead one to believe that the process is over and there's no chance of receiving SSD benefits. That would be a mistake. There is an appeals process and there is a chance that the original decision might be overturned.
