Qualifying medical conditions to receive SSD benefits

You've heard it time and time again-if you have a disability that is going to last more than a year and affects your ability to work while also preventing you from any form of gainful activity, then you may be eligible to receive federal Social Security Disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. But, what does this really mean-what is meant by a disability?

Tragic motor vehicle accident kills two, severely injures one

Even though we don't like to admit it, when we get out on the road, there is a certain risk that one might get involved in a motor vehicle accident. One doesn't expect that when they are sitting in the safety of their own home, which is why the recent car crash that took the lives of two in Indiana is such a shock to the community.

How do I appeal my SSD claim?

There are a number of reasons a Social Security disability claim may be denied; some of those were discussed in last week's post. Though it may seem frustrating at the time and it may seem like the end of the road, that is not the case-the Social Security Administration provides several levels of appeals for denied claims.

Common reasons for denied SSD claims

When someone has been working their whole life and trying to remain independent without relying on anyone for help, it may come as a shock to them that they are suddenly injured and need to ask for financial assistance to make ends meet. However, various federal programs exist for this reason--to provide much needed financial assistance to those who prove their eligibility. The federal regulations surrounding the Social Security Disability claims administered by the Social Security Administration are complicated, however, and it can be frustrating when someone has finally completed their application and submitted their paperwork only to have their claim denied.

Medical mistakes one of the leading causes of death

When an Indiana resident goes to the doctor, they expect the doctor will help them, not hurt them. Most of the time this is the case, but, occasionally, a medical mistake occurs. In this situation, a family may be able to hold a doctor liable for medical malpractice.
