What Is The Social Security Disability Claim Process Like?
The process for obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits can be long, complicated and even overwhelming. With capable, experienced legal help, however, it doesn’t have to be.
At The Law Offices of Sheryl Gandel Mazur, we are tireless advocates of hardworking people in New Jersey who are prevented from working due to serious injuries or other medical conditions. The government offers assistance to these people through SSDI and other benefits, and our job is to make sure that people get the benefits they are entitled to.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) estimates that benefits applications can take three to five months just to process; it can take even longer to appeal a denied claim. Our firm will do everything to help you collect as quickly as possible. Call 973-200-6629 or 877-892-0197 for a free consultation at one of our Newark-area or Absecon offices.
Representing People Throughout New Jersey
If you have become unable to work due to a medical condition, the first step in the SSDI process is to determine if you qualify. We have helped countless clients determine whether they are
eligible for SSDI benefits.
Once we have established your eligibility, we will guide you through the SSDI application process. This includes filling out forms that detail your medical condition and how it has prevented you from working. Your medical provider will also have to complete forms describing your condition and the treatment you are receiving.
We help our clients prepare their initial application so that it has the greatest chance of being approved the first time. In many cases, however, it will be necessary to use one or more stages of the appeals process. Our firm can prepare you for and represent you at each stage:
- Reconsideration appeal
- Administrative law judge (ALJ) hearings
- Appeals Council hearings
- Federal court appeals
