What is an 'Unsuccessful Work Attempt' for SSDI in New Jersey?

We have previously discussed the fact that the Social Security Administration (SSA) attempts to provide incentives to attempt to get back to work to those New Jersey residents who receive disability through its Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) programs. Because it is in the administration's, the individual's and society's best interest that people do productive work if possible, the SSA will do what it can to encourage those who try.

These four things could expedite your SSDI application

The question most people have when applying for SSDI benefits is: 'how long is this going to take?' Understandably, people who are applying for SSDI benefits are usually not in a position to wait long periods of time without income. Unfortunately, in most cases the SSDI claims process takes longer than most would care to wait. 

What is considered 'income' if I get SSI in New Jersey?

Almost a month ago, this blog listed quite a few instances in which a change in a Supplemental Security Income recipient's life needs to be reported to the Social Security Administration. One of the most important of these factors is a change in income. However, there may be more facets to an income change than some New Jersey residents may think.

What is an 'Organic Mental Disorder' for SSDI purposes?

This blog has previously discussed quite a few of the listings in the Social Security Administration's (SSA) "Blue Book." Readers will remember that these listings give the SSA guidelines for certain specific maladies that will qualify a New Jersey applicant as disabled for the purposes of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. As we have pointed out before, psychological conditions that cause one to be unable to work may be harder to prove than physical ones, simply because there are fewer specific medical tests that show the exact condition, and many mental condition diagnoses depend upon subjective evaluation by medical professionals.
