Social Security fraud crackdown criticized

The U.S. General Accounting Office issued a report earlier this month finding that the Social Security Administration is inadequately investigating and ending fraud in its Disability Insurance program. The GAO reported that the SSA adequately addresses cases where beneficiaries no longer meet the requirements for physical or mental disability benefits. The SSA's case review, however, does not maximize potential savings.

Do I have to earn work credits to get SSI benefits?

As the most recent post on this blog stated, while a New Jersey resident might not be able to collect SSDI income if he or she has not worked enough to meet eligibility requirements, this does not mean that the person is unable to get any federal assistance because of his or her disability.

Other types of mental conditions that could lead to disability

Legal help for those seeking disability benefits

Last week's post discussed how clinical depression can, under the right circumstances, qualify a resident of Newark, New Jersey for Social Security benefits.

Is depression covered under Social Security benefits?

As this blog has previously reported, there can be a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to obtaining disability benefits for mental conditions like depression or other clinical mental illnesses. People do not always manifest their mental illnesses in a physical way, making it appear that they are perfectly healthy and capable of working.

Recent facts about SSD benefits

The federal government's Social Security disability program is somewhat controversial. Many people argue that it is simply too generous in providing SSD benefits, while others believe it is not to be doing enough to help this country's disabled population. It can be difficult to know which argument to believe.
