Contact a Clifton, New Jersey SSD Advocate

The NJ Social Security Disability attorneys at Silverman & Roedel, LLC are SSD advocates, helping disabled people tackle the often-frustrating process of obtaining SSD benefits.

To learn how we can help, call us at 973-772-6411 or contact us online.

Qualifying for SSD Benefits

It’s a fact that nearly 70 percent of initial applications for Social Security Disability benefits are denied. As a result, it is not surprising that much of our attorneys’ work as SSD advocates involves appeals. We walk clients through the appeals process, helping them get the benefits they need and deserve.

In order to obtain SSD benefits, you must prove that you not only have a qualifying disability, but that the disability prevents you from performing substantial gainful work. This is often more difficult than you might think. In some cases, we will need to obtain additional medical examinations and other evaluations in order to demonstrate that you meet the requirements.

Other Things to Know About a Social Security Disability Claim

The SSD process can be complex, especially once you start an appeal. Even with the best advocacy, you could be waiting for months or even years to have your claim resolved. Other things you should be aware of include:

  • Mistakes in paperwork can be costly, so it is important to do it right at every level.
  • You have a right to an attorney, known as an advocate in the context of Social Security.
  • The Social Security Disability law and process is complex and uses a lot of medical terminology.
  • It’s easier to deny your initial claim, as workers must review more than two million applications and cannot be your advocate.
  • Some cases go to court, forcing you to obtain a lawyer if you don’t have one already.
  • We cannot charge a fee, by law, until you get benefits.
