Social Security Disability

New Jersey Social Security Disability Lawyer

Since 1936, the Hackensack, New Jersey Social Security disability lawyers at Parisi & Gerlanc, PC, have been helping injured workers and other injured people in northern New Jersey. Helping you recover the financial assistance you need to move forward with your life is the exclusive focus of our law practice.

If you have been unable to work for more than twelve (12) months, you may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits under the Social Security Disability law. A disabled worker can apply for both SSDI and SSI at the same time.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is income provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to people with a significant work history who now find themselves unable to work because of a serious workplace injury or a traumatic personal injury.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is income provided by the Social Security Administration to people who are unable to support themselves due to a permanent disability (or long-term temporary disability) AND who have very limited income and assets.

Your Social Security Benefits Application

The preparation of your initial "Disability Report" is critical to the proper development of your disability benefits claim. It must be prepared correctly and with sufficient detail to establish your disability. We are pleased to have a registered nurse on staff who also has a law degree. She can guide you through the application forms and supporting physician statements to ensure that you receive the maximum allowable monthly and retroactive benefits. Contact our office for a free initial consultation and to begin the benefits application process.

If Your Social Security Benefits Claim Is Denied

A percentage of Social Security benefit claims are denied every year. A denied disability claim does not necessarily mean you aren't eligible for benefits.

If you did not work with a social security disability attorney the first time, consider working with one now. The Social Security Administration may not have understood the severity of your disability, or you may not have followed the correct procedures, or missed a deadline. You have 60 days in which to appeal a denial decision. Contact a New Jersey social security disability lawyer at Parisi & Gerlanc to see if we can help you secure the benefits you need.
