Wolf & Brown Law Offices Knows Social Security Law

The Social Security Administration claims the disability process is non-adversarial. We disagree!

Social Security is denying many Social Security Disability (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits cases thereby denying people past-due benefits and access to Medicare. Do NOT take on the United States Government for Social Security Disability claims without the lawyers at Wolf and Brown. Based in Cherry Hill, our trusted lawyers have extensive experience in both demonstrating the effects of disabilities, as well as navigating this complex system.

Social Security Disability FAQs

How do I qualify for social security disability benefits?

In New Jersey, the process for obtaining Social Security Disability (SSD) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits is complicated and technical. Most people who file an application on their own are turned down because they fail to adequately demonstrate that their disabling condition is preventing them from working. Many people also make procedural errors because they are unfamiliar with navigating a complicated system. Without an attorney, the risk of denial or long delays in approval is increased. We offer free consultations, handle Social Security Disability claims on a contingency basis, and in the rare event that we don’t secure benefits for you, you don’t pay a dime.

Am I eligible for disability benefits?

In order to be eligible for Social Security disability benefits you either have to have stopped working or reduced your work activity to below substantial gainful activity. In addition, you must be able to show that you have:

  • Suffered a serious injury or illness recognized on the list of recognized impairments (see above)
  • You are not able to work as a result of your illness or injury
  • Said injury or illness is expected to last at least one year or result in death
  • You are not able to perform past work or other types of work as a direct result of your injury or illness

It is important to note that you can apply for benefits the moment you become unable to work and do not have to wait for 12 months to apply. Many people make procedural errors because they are unfamiliar with navigating a complicated system. Without an attorney, the risk of denial or long delays in approval is increased. If you are not sure whether your impairments qualify for SSD benefits, call our office for a free consultation.

Can I appeal a social security disability denial?

Denied benefit claims are not the end of the road, there is a lot we can do! Many of our clients were denied their initial claim for Social Security benefits. Some of the people we represent were denied benefits two or even three times. At any point in the claim, our attorneys can step in and smoothly and quickly guide an application, reconsideration, or appeal through the complex and demanding Social Security Administrative process and, if appropriate, to Federal Court. Even if you think you cannot appeal a claim because you are out of time or missed an appeal date, call us for a review at no charge.

New Jersey SSDI Attorneys

How the Application Process Works

Living with a disability can be extremely challenging. In order to help disabled individuals, the Social Security Administration (SSA) awards benefits to these individuals via the Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits system. Although many may think that applying for disability benefits is a simple process, this is not the case. The initial application process requires a lot of paperwork to be completed, extensive medical records to be obtained, and hordes of personal information. With the help of an attorney, you can avoid common mistakes or errors that could compromise your eligibility, correct any inconsistencies or missing elements that are crucial to proving your disability, and compile the necessary documentation to prove, beyond a doubt, that you are disabled and eligible for benefits.
