South Jersey Social Security Disability Lawyer

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a government-funded safety net for millions of Americans who worked hard through much of their adult lives before developing disabling physical or mental conditions that prevent them from working to age 65.

As much as 80 percent of applicants for SSDI have their initial application rejected. If denied, an applicant has 60 days to file an appeal, which is referred to as a Request for Reconsideration. I am Paul Tendler, an experienced SSDI attorney who understands the appeal process and who has helped hundreds of individuals receive disability benefits.

If you are approved for SSDI benefits, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will likely owe you some amount of retroactive benefits. I handle these cases on a contingency fee basis with my fees being set by the Social Security Rules and Regulations. You will never pay me an attorney fee directly, but, rather, my fee will be paid to me by Social Security out of those retroactive benefits due and owing to you.

I also help individuals receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, a federal program for dependent children, adults with disabilities who were unable to work, and surviving spouses who do not qualify for SSDI benefits.
