Teaneck is a New Jersey township of just under 40,000 residents in central Bergen County. Incorporated in 1895, the township was established as a quiet farming community of Dutch settlers. From 1930 to 1950, the area grew rapidly as zoning and long-term economic development took hold. The township – Bergen County’s second most populated – was the first in the country with a white majority to voluntarily desegregate its public schools in 1965 and today Teaneck celebrates its diverse population, including large Jewish and African American communities as well as vibrant Hispanic and Asian cultures. Teaneck is home to portions of Farleigh Dickinson University and notable current and former residents include fashion designer Marc Jacobs, New York Yankee Dave Winfield, actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Paul Sorvino and Motown recording artists The Isley Brothers.

Each year, more than 2 million people file claims for Social Security disability benefits, which are available generally for persons who are unable to work for a year or more due to a physical or mental impairment or a combination thereof. A disabled person whose condition is expected to last for at least a year should file a claim for benefits as soon as he or she becomes disabled because the claim process can take several months and retroactive benefits only go back one year from the date that the benefits claim is filed.
Unfortunately, about 65% of Social Security benefits claims, including many with merit, are initially denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA). That means that the claimant must file an appeal in order to continue to pursue the claim. As experienced disability attorneys, we are well versed in the claims and appeal processes and can provide vital assistance to persons seeking Social Security disability benefits. Year after year, we are successful in more than 90% of the claims we handle.
