Information to know before applying for disability benefits

Being forced out of work because of a disability can be frustrating for some people, especially because it raises concerns about providing financial security to your family down the road. Thankfully, as many of our New Jersey readers know, the Social Security Administration has a program in place for just such an unfortunate turn of events.

Aphasia: not a compassionate allowance but still a disability

There are presently 224 disabling conditions listed as Compassionate Allowances. This list, compiled by the Social Security Administration, is added to regularly and contains conditions that have all met the SSA definition of a disability. This means that if a condition on this list is then listed on a disability application, that application is then immediately fast tracked and is more likely to result in benefits.

Rare conditions of Compassionate Allowances: pleural mesothelioma

In a previous post, we started a series on the rare conditions included on the Compassionate Allowances list. This list makes it easier and faster for those with certain conditions to access the Social Security benefits for which they are obviously eligible.

How long does it take SSD claims to be processed in New Jersey?

Applications for important services rarely have a quick turnaround. Everyone knows that. But while this is no different for Social Security disability benefits, some are still surprised by the long waits that actually accompany this important service.
