What does it mean to be disabled for SSD benefits purposes?

If you’ve been relatively healthy for most of your life, you have probably not thought much about Social Security disability benefits or disability in general. This is information that many people wouldn’t research unless they needed to know it for themselves or a loved one.

SSD recipients spend over a third of benefits on healthcare costs

When individuals become disabled, they generally expect that their healthcare costs will be higher than average over the span of a lifetime. However, a newly released analysis indicates that individuals who receive Social Security disability benefits are often compelled to use more than one-third of their benefits on out-of-pocket healthcare costs alone.

SSA offers fully disabled veterans expedited claims processing

Because of America’s two long-term wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, more troops than perhaps ever before are returning with debilitating physical and psychological injuries. In addition to lost limbs and traumatic brain injury, troops are also susceptible to psychological injuries such as anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Some illnesses are fairly easy to diagnose, such as cancer. Depending on the type of cancer and where in the body it is located, doctors can often perform relatively non-invasive tests to confirm a diagnosis.

SSA expands list of Compassionate Allowances for serious conditions

As such, even well-crafted Social Security disability claims often take considerable time to process. But for individuals suffering from certain medical conditions, time is not a resource they can afford to lose.

Spinal cord injuries are on the rise in the U.S.

Of all types of injuries, the most life-altering may be injuries to the back and spine. Even when considered relatively mild, a spinal cord injury can result in chronic pain, numbness and limited mobility. In more extreme cases, these injuries can cause paralysis including quadriplegia and paraplegia.

Campaign seeks to reduce chronic disease in New Jersey

There is little debate about the fact that chronic disease is costly, both to individuals and to society. Costs include more expensive medical care, loss of worker productivity and early death, just to name a few. So what can we do to reduce the costs associated with these chronic ailments such as uncontrolled diabetes and heart disease?

Will alleged SSDI fraud make it harder to be approved?

If you follow the news, you’ve probably heard that a large group of New York City workers including firefighters and police officers allegedly committed fraud in order to obtain Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits. Naturally, it is disturbing to hear about fraud of any sort.
