Somerset County SSDI Attorneys | Liver Disease
Representing NJ clients facing disability caused by liver disease
Liver disease is a common cause of disability in the United States. When a person cannot work because of a liver disease, their future is at stake. Social Security Disability Insurance is in place to support us when we cannot support ourselves. In the best scenarios, we work until retirement and collect Social Security in our later years. This is not always the case and some people face unforeseen obstacles that impact their ability to work. When we cannot work because of a disability caused by liver disease, it is our right to request support from the Social Security Administration. If you have become disabled because of a liver disease, it is important to contact a knowledgeable SSD lawyer. Siragusa Law Firm is an experienced Somerset County SSD law firm providing quality legal services for disabled clients in New Jersey. Having the right attorney on your side is best.

Social Security’s Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program
We contribute to Social Security with every paycheck. The Social Security’s Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program taxes our earnings to be used in the future when we need it. At this moment, the Social Security’s Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program has a tax rate of 6.2%. Employers meet this percentage, making an employee’s contribution 12.4%. For those who are self-employed, the OASDI tax rate is 12.4% to meet the needs of the individual and supplement an employer’s contribution.
SSDI | Chronic liver disease
Liver disease covers a lot of different topics. Regarding disability, according to the Social Security Administration, liver disease typically falls into three categories:
- Cirrhosis- Scarring of liver tissue caused by long-term exposure to toxins that exceed the organ’s capacity
- Hepatitis C- A chronic viral infection caused by blood contact and sexual activity
- AIDS/HIV- liver disease caused by a compromised immune system.
Proving disability caused by liver disease is difficult and requires specific medical evidence. Doctor visits, medical exams, and more are necessary to prove that your liver disease is serious enough to entitle you to benefits. Aside from being diagnosed with liver disease or being put on a transplant waiting list, our firm will help you supplement claims regarding all treatment options as well.
