What to tell the SSA when working and getting SSD benefits

When a New Jersey resident is receiving Social Security disability benefits and tries to get back into the workforce, there are certain incentives they will receive, including a trial work period, an extended period of eligibility, expedited reinstatement if they are not able to continue working, a continuation of Medicare, and work expenses related to the disability. However, there are also important pieces of information that the person must give the Social Security Administration.

What back problems make you eligible for SSD benefits?

While back problems are the most common types of injuries that are applied towards Social Security Disability, they can also be the most difficult to win. Back pains are natural to the aging process, so the Social Security Administration needs proof that your condition is in a harsh state and not just the typical discomfort.

Can my Supplemental Security Income be expedited?

Certain New Jersey residents who are eligible for Supplemental Security Income and meet all the necessary requirements may need to receive their benefits in an expedited manner. Many are unaware of how to go about getting expedited payments. There are four circumstances in which this can happen: if there is presumptive disability or presumptive blindness; for emergency advance payment; for immediate payment; and in expedited reinstatement.

How is motor function assessed for disability?

Neurological disorders can cause immense problems for New Jersey residents as they try to function each day. If the issues reach a certain level and they are unable to work because of them, they can apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Certain factors must be in place to meet the requirements to receive SSD benefits. One issue that is of paramount importance is the disorganization of motor function. Understanding what this means and when it will be considered "extreme" is imperative to a case.

Supplemental Security Income reviews

Getting Supplemental Security Income can be a moment of relief for New Jersey residents who are blind, disabled and 65 or older. These benefits serve an essential purpose for those who meet the criteria and need them to make ends meet, get the necessary treatment and more. It is critical to remember, however, that the Social Security Administration must ensure that everyone who is getting SSI benefits should be getting them and there are not new circumstances that would change their eligibility. With that will come periodic reviews. Understanding the review process, how often they take place, and what happens when they are done is key.
