Somerset County SSDI Attorneys | Mental Illness
Representing NJ clients facing disability caused by mental illness
Being disabled because of a mental issue can be crushing. The effect on one’s life can be immense. When a person cannot work because of a mental illness, their life is on the line. Fortunately, Social Security Disability Insurance functions to support us if we suddenly cannot support ourselves. Most of the time, we will work until retirement age and collect Social Security in our senior years. This is not always possible when we are struggling and become disabled because of a mental illness. When we cannot work because of a disability, physical or mental, it is our right as productive members of society to request support. If you have become disabled because of a mental illness, it is important to contact an experienced SSD attorney that can protect your rights. Siragusa Law Firm is an experienced SSDI law firm providing quality legal support for disabled clients in Somerset County and all of New Jersey. Though the Social Security disability claims process seems simple, a denial can be devastating. Having a team on your side is best. Contact Siragusa Law Firm for a consultation.
Social Security’s Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program
A percentage of our paychecks pay for our contribution to Social Security. The Social Security’s Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program taxes a certain percentage of our earnings. Our employers also pay a good amount, meeting our contribution. At this writing, the Social Security’s Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program has a tax rate of 6.2%. With the employer meeting that contribution, each worker’s position provides 12.4%. For those who are self-employed, the OASDI tax rate is 12.4% to meet the needs of the individual without an employer.
SSDI | Mental Illness
Mental illness is a common cause of disability in the United States. Millions of people across the United States are disabled because of a mental disorder and some do not even know they are entitled to disability benefits. Some of the many issues that may constitute a mental illness disability include:
- Bipolar disorder
- Anxiety disorders
- Panic attacks
- Post- traumatic stress disorder
Proving a mental illness is difficult and having quality legal support is best. Because the burden of proof is generally on you, it is important to document your disability with thorough assessments from mental health professionals. Our firm can develop a position backed by medical evidence; a comprehensive strategy to meet the disability threshold.
