Disability is no respecter of age. While some people in Newark may be well into adulthood before they develop a disability, even children can be afflicted with a disability. They may, then, require a great deal of medical care. Caring for a disabled child can be expensive. The Social Security Administration recognizes this and, in some cases, will award a child Supplemental Security Income as a means for helping the child's parents cope with the financial costs of caring for a disabled child.
As many New Jersey residents already know, April is the month to file your taxes or request an extension.

For many New Jersey residents, simply obtaining SSI benefits can be a headache. The application can be long and detailed. The government often incorrectly denies the application, forcing the need for an appeal. So when a New Jersey resident finally gets the good news, it can be a relief.

Many New Jerseyans know that the Social Security Administration (SSA) offers disability benefits. But, less know that the SSA offers both Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This post will dive more deeply into what SSI is and who is eligible to receive it.
For New Jersey residents who are receiving Social Security disability benefits through the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) there might be a sense of relief when they are approved, but it is important to know about maintaining benefits. When applying for SSI benefits, it must be remembered that the Social Security Administration will have continuing disability reviews. These are reviews of the disability or blindness to determine whether or not the claimant remains disabled or blind. If the problem that spurred the benefits to be provided has dissipated, then they will be stopped.
