Not every case in which a New Jersey resident is seeking Supplemental Security Income is simple. Everyone's situation is different and there are myriad factors that must be considered when filing an application for SSI-related benefits. One circumstance that presents challenges is if a person who believes he or she is eligible for SSI based on a disability, blindness, being 65 or older and meeting the income limits is if he or she is incarcerated. There are cases where people can file for SSI while they are incarcerated. Understanding how to deal with such a complex case requires legal assistance.
Not every disability lasts for a lifetime. With proper medical treatment and a little luck, people can recover from some conditions covered by Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and return to their normal lives.
New Jersey residents who are considering applying for Supplemental Security Income and meet the basic requirements should be aware that there are certain factors that will automatically disqualify them from being approved. Simply because blind or disabled individuals are 65 or older and meet the income limitations to get SSI benefits does not mean they can get them in every circumstance. For people preparing an application, it is important to settle certain matters that render them ineligible, if possible. When preparing an application, it is important to have legal advice.
New Jersey residents who are getting Supplemental Security Income and are working will often need to enter a medical facility due to their disabling issues. Many are concerned as to how this will impact their SSI benefits. Those who get SSI and work should be cognizant of how the process is handled, if they can receive benefits while they are in the facility, how much they can earn, and other factors. Understanding the rules for this situation is key.
When applying for Supplemental Security Income, New Jersey residents might think that the basic requirements are the only important aspects of a case. However, there are other factors that can impact an application and these go beyond being blind, disabled and 65 or older. One issue is that the Social Security Administration must be granted permission to contact the applicant's financial institutions. If there is an issue with this or confusion over it, having legal assistance is imperative to avoid the claim being denied.
