Residents Denied Social Security Disability or Veterans Benefits Can Schedule a Free Consultation

Posted on November 1, 2017

Have you been denied Social Security disability or veterans benefits?  Are you having difficulty applying for these benefits? If so, you may want to apply for a free consultation with an attorney from the Community Justice Center of Trenton.

The Somerset County Office on Aging and Disability Services will provide an opportunity for eligible residents to meet an attorney at its office at 27 Warren St. in Somerville Thursday, Nov. 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Somerset County residents living with disabilities who are interested in this free consultation should contact Paulann Pierson of the Office on Aging and Disability Services by Nov. 6 at (908) 704-6334 or ppierson@co.somerset.nj.us to obtain a referral form that is required by the Community Justice Center.

Eligibility for a consultation requires an income at or below 175 percent of the poverty level, or eligibility for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or General Assistance (GA).

Community Justice Center staff members are experienced in advocacy before the Social Security Administration and the Department of Veterans Affairs and have assisted people with all kinds of disabilities in obtaining benefits. They have extensive experience with “invisible” impairments, especially those associated with traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and other cognitive or mental health issues.
