Social Security Disability
If you cannot do work that you did before and you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s), then you may be eligible for benefits from the federal government under Social Security Disability. Your disability must also last or be expected to last for at least one year or to result in death. There is a local claims office located at Suite 100, Five Executive Campus, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002. More information concerning Social Security disability benefits can be obtained by contacting the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 or visit their website at: www.SSA.gov
If you are denied benefits from the Social Security Administration, you have a right to appeal. The appeal must be perfected within a very limited time frame. There are very strict timelines that do relate to the filing of Social Security disability applications and therefore, if you believe you are completely disabled, you should not delay in applying for benefits.
