Supplemental Security Income is a need-based financial benefit that can help New Jersey kids and disabled adults. But obtaining those benefits can be easier said than done. That is because SSI benefits contain many requirements that an applicant must satisfy before they can begin receiving the benefit. These requirements can be intimidating.
Fortunately, New Jerseyans do not need to jump through these hurdles alone; the Law Offices of Sheryl Gandel Mazur has dedicated itself to helping New Jerseyans obtain SSI benefits. We have considerable experience guiding New Jerseyans through each stage of the process.
What are the requirements for obtaining SSI benefits? For adults to qualify, they generally must have low income, limited resources and a disability. For kids to qualify, they normally need a disability. A disability can include a medical condition like brain injuries, learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder.
But, even if a person qualifies, that does not mean that they should expect to get a quick yes from the Social Security Administration. To the contrary, the process for obtaining benefits is often long and arduous, and marked by setbacks and reversals. New Jerseyans who try to navigate this process alone are facing a daunting task.
