Representing NJ clients facing disability caused by uncontrolled diabetes
Millions of people in the United States suffer from diabetes.

The OASDI program
With every paycheck, we contribute to Social Security. To be used in case of a disability or when we retire, the Social Security’s Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program takes a percentage of our earnings every pay period. The OASDI program taxes our incomes at a rate of 6.2%. Employers meet this percentage, paying 6.2% of our paycheck to prepare us for the future. For those who work for themselves, the OASDI tax rate is 12.4% to meet the needs of the individual and supplement what would have been an employer’s contribution.
