Man threatens workers after being denied disability benefits

Applying for Social Security disability benefits can be a difficult process in New Jersey and beyond. In addition to confusing laws, the government also enforces strict requirements for people receiving Social Security disability benefits. Those who receive benefits must be totally disabled and unable to work.

Couple faked injuries in order to receive disability benefits

Social Security disability benefits are only intended for individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere who are fully disabled, and those who are no longer able to perform their assigned duties.

In a somewhat similar story, a couple has been convicted of faking their injuries to begin receiving Social Security disability benefits.

Many of those living on Social Security Disability benefits, and this includes many New Jersey residents, are still struggling to make ends meet. If it were not for the help of the community, many families living on SSDI benefits would themselves in even worse situations.One family illustrates just how difficult it is to live in this economy. A 40-year-old mother lives off her Social Security disability payments. Her husband has been unemployed, but no longer draws an unemployment check. The mother was worried how she would feed her family and buy presents for her kids at Christmas.
