Debunking the myth that SSD fraud is widespread

It is commonly understood that sensationalism sells. Whether one is trying to run a newspaper or a 24-hour news network, it is tempting to take actual news and blow it out of proportion in order to catch the audience’s interest. As such, sensational stories should be taken with a grain of salt.

How your specific disability may influence SSD application process

“Disability” is kind of a catch-all term describing injuries and illnesses on a wide spectrum of severity. Some physical disabilities that come about as a result of injuries may be permanent but won’t necessarily get worse over time.

Several weeks ago, a shocking story made headlines nationwide. Hundreds of former New York City police officers and firefighters, many of whom had served their city and their nation bravely on 9/11 and during its aftermath, had been accused of committing fraud against the Social Security Administration. This disturbing story has added fuel to a widespread and misinformed perception that a significant percentage of individuals who receive Social Security Disability benefits do not actually deserve them.

Veterans often face battle at home for disability benefits

Veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have come home as heroes, but many are worse for the wear. Combat wounds are honored with a Purple Heart, but combat is just one of the many ways that active-duty soldiers can suffer injuries and health problems.

Weight-loss surgery may offer additional benefit: Diabetes control

For a variety of reasons both controllable and uncontrollable, Type 2 diabetes has become increasingly prevalent in the U.S. In combination with the Type 1 variety, the disease affects the lives and health of approximately 26 million Americans. About two-thirds of this population is either obese or overweight.

Most common disabling condition worldwide is low back pain
