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

    Have a conversation with your doctor and ask whether he/she would support your claim for disability. It would be very helpful if the physician were willing to complete a questionnaire addressing your limitations. Your attorney can prepare such a questionnaire.

    Good news for my clients who are waiting for hearings. Two judges from other states have recently transferred to the So. Jersey hearing office. Three new judges were hired late last year. That brings the total from 6 judges to 11 (although one will be retiring at the end of 2018). I am noticing reduced wait times!

    Last day in Atlanta attending NOSSCR, a national conference for SS attorneys. I arrived early to see the sights. Interesting sessions on MS, cardiovascular conditions, how to discredit SS’s doctor. More learning today, then back to NJ to put it to use
