Disability Benefits

New Jersey Disability Benefits Lawyer

Disabling medical conditions and injuries often have their most immediate impact on a person's finances. When people are unable to earn a living and are struggling to stay afloat in tough economic times, the most urgent questions often focus on the kind of short-term or long-term disability benefits they are eligible for.

At the Law Offices of Steven Gaechter, our New Jersey disability benefits attorney can give you a realistic assessment of your claim, an estimate of the disability benefits you might expect, and the experienced legal representation you need to navigate the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) systems. Contact our Hackensack Social Security lawyer online or call 201-546-5758 to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your situation.

Possible Benefits You May Be Eligible For

When you have been sidelined by an injury or an illness, there are a number of different benefits that you may be eligible for, including:

Disability benefits: An approved SSDI claim will provide you with a guaranteed monthly income and a lump-sum payment of benefits that started accruing the day your initial application was received. The exact amount will depend on your work and earnings history.

Medicare and Medicaid benefits: After receiving SSDI benefits for 24 months, you also become eligible for Medicare assistance. Individuals who are receiving SSI qualify for Medicaid immediately.

Vocational benefits: Through the "Ticket to Work" program you may be able to get help with training and other services you need to go back to work at no cost.

Disability benefits for family members: Members of your family, including spouses, children and even former spouses may qualify for SSDI benefits based on your work history.
