Adult Social Security Disability and SSI

When I become your attorney, you will speak directly to me, not to a secretary or paralegal. I make every effort to return phone calls within 24 hours.

I have obtained benefits for claimants of all ages, for a variety of physical and mental impairments, including the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Bladder Conditions
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • Cirrhosis of the Liver
  • Closed Head Injury
  • Colitis
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Heart Disease
  • Hepatitis
  • Lupus  Multiple Sclerosis
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
  • Scleroderma
  • Sickle Cell Disease
  • Spinal Injuries (Neck/Back)
  • Stroke
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Child S.S.I.

Children from birth up to age 18 may be entitled to Supplemental Security Income (S.S.I.) benefits.  The child must have a physical and/or mental condition that very seriously limits his or her activities.  The condition must have lasted at least one year, or be expected to last one year or result in death.  Additionally, the parents' income and assets must fall within Social Security's eligibility limits.

 

IS MY CHILD DISABLED?

 

The child's impairment(s) must cause what Social Security considers "marked" or "severe" functional limitations.  Social Security compares the claimant to a child of the same age who does not have impairments. They consider any extra help a child may require to do age-appropriate activities.  Your child may be a candidate for S.S.I. if one or more of the following applies:

 

  • frequent hospitalizations or emergency room visits
  • frequent absences from school
  • use of adaptive devices
  • difficulty walking, running, jumping, throwing a ball, bike riding, etc.
  • difficulty with fine motor skills such as writing
  • difficulty expressing himself in words, or understanding verbal language
  • trouble with law enforcement
  • poor discipline record at school
  • attendance at out-of-district school or need for one-on-one aide
  • side effects of medication that limit activities
  • held back in school
  • lagging behind peers developmentally in any way

    Tip of the Day

    It IS possible to work while collecting Social Security Disability. There are limitations, however, and you have to be careful not to create an overpayment. An overpayment can be a nightmare.

    Today I attended a meeting of my colleagues with our head judge of the So. Jersey hearing office, Judge Cerulli. He reported that three new judges have been hired and well as several support staff. Hoping they will help chip away at the backlog.

    In the event of a government shutdown, payments will continue for Social Security disability and retirement as well SSI. It appears that any scheduled hearings will go forward as well. https://www.ssa.gov/agency/shutdown/materials/contingency-plan.pdf

    Veterans Day is tomorrow, but the Social Security offices are closed today in observance of the holiday. To all of my clients who are veterans, thank you for your service.
