What happens to SSD benefits when you retire? Part - II

If you're a regular follower of our blog, then you may have read last week's post in which we talked about Social Security disability benefits in relation to retirement. As you may remember, we explained that your Social Security Disability Insurance does not just disappear when you retire but rather it converts into your retirement benefit and continues to provide financial security for you and your family.

What happens to SSD benefits when you retire? Part - I

If you find the rules and regulations for the Social Security Administration's many programs to be confusing, you're not alone. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people ask questions ranging from how to apply to how to appeal. If you have found yourself asking a question about your federal benefits and are looking for an answer, then you've come to the right place.

Congress' focus on the budget could hurt SSDI beneficiaries

If you're a regular follower of our blog, then you probably already know about the potential crisis facing the Social Security Disability trust fund.

But when a person is suddenly struck with a disabling illness or injury, medical expenses can wreak havoc on a budget, leaving a person feeling stressed about their finances and wondering if there is anything they can do.

TSA willing to assist individuals with disabilities

Anyone who has been through the security lines at an airport -- whether in Newark or elsewhere -- knows that they were likely not designed with much thought for those who live with disabilities. The lines are cramped and snake tightly back and forth. Even certain demands, such as removing shoes, can be difficult for some people. On top of all of that, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is not known for being the most accommodating agency. Fortunately, they are working to change that image.
