Early-onset Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia take a heavy toll not only on the individual suffering, but also on his or her entire family. Beyond the emotions involved in confronting these serious conditions, many families also struggle with the financial costs associated with treating a loved one with dementia. Many individuals with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, but the process can be emotionally and financially trying. The Law Offices of Sheryl Gandel Mazur is here to help families in North and South New Jersey by working with them to obtain the government benefits that can help manage the costs of treating this debilitating disease. We are tireless advocates of those who have worked hard and are now prevented from working by their medical conditions. We can help your loved one and your family get the help they need.
SSD Benefits For Alzheimer’s Disease in New Jersey
The first step in filing an SSDI claim is to understand your or your loved one’s condition. Common symptoms of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease include memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment and trouble performing simple tasks. Seek a medical evaluation if any of these symptoms are present, then contact our firm for a free consultation with a Newark-area lawyer if your medical provider suspects early-onset dementia.
Experienced Attorney Helping People Understand Early-Onset Dementia And SSD Benefits
The Social Security Administration (SSA) recently added early-onset Alzheimer’s disease to its list of “compassionate allowance” conditions. This list of severe and/or rare medical conditions allows individuals suffering from these conditions to take advantage of an expedited benefits claim process. In many cases, individuals with early-onset dementia can obtain a decision on their claim much more quickly than they would have previously. We assist our clients at every stage of the claims process.
Still, some claims may be denied following the initial application; therefore it is important to have knowledgeable, experienced legal help by your side. We help families navigate the many steps of the SSDI appeals process, from hearings before an administrative law judge all the way to federal court appeals. We do whatever it takes to get our clients the benefits they need.
