Tens of thousands suffer from asbestos exposure

For decades, asbestos was considered almost a super-product. It was incredibly versatile, strong and resistant to heat yet strong for insulation, and was used throughout the construction industry and mandated for use by all branches of the United States military. Then in 1973, a shipper named Clarence Borel filed a claim against an asbestos manufacturer citing injuries as a result of the product.

What types of income will be considered for child SSI benefits?

Disability is no respecter of age. While some people in Newark may be well into adulthood before they develop a disability, even children can be afflicted with a disability. They may, then, require a great deal of medical care. Caring for a disabled child can be expensive. The Social Security Administration recognizes this and, in some cases, will award a child Supplemental Security Income as a means for helping the child's parents cope with the financial costs of caring for a disabled child.

Even young adults at risk of colorectal cancers, study says

Many young adults in Newark have heard their parents complain about having to get a colonoscopy, with the fasting and cleansing that they must undergo before the screening takes place. Nevertheless, most adults are begrudgingly happy to take these measures, if it means detecting cancer early. Since regular colorectal screenings usually don't start until a person is in their 50s, it may seem like colorectal cancers are only an issue for older adults. One study, however, may dispute this assumption.

Brain injuries can lead to significant disabilities for a victim

The brain is one of the most important organs in the body. It is also one of the most fragile. The human body protects the brain with a solid and strong skull, but any impact to the head could still prove to be costly with the potential of causing a brain injury.

Six-month waiting period for SSD benefits proving fatal for some

The Social Security Administration's "Compassionate Allowances" program is meant to expedite the approval process for those in Newark and nationwide who meet the requirements to receive Social Security disability benefits. However, the a six-month waiting period between the time the applicant is awarded benefits and the time the applicant receives benefits is proving to be fatal for some.

Migraines may cause anxiety disorders, study says

New Jersey residents who suffer from migraine headaches may find that all they can do is lie down in a quiet, dark room until the agony of the headache subsides, which could take days. However, according to a recent study, the chronic pain one experiences if they have migraine headaches could increase the chance a person will develop a generalized anxiety disorder. According to the research, adults who suffer from migraine headaches are 6 percent more at risk of developing an anxiety disorder, compared to the 2 percent chance of those who don't have migraine headaches.

Social Security Blog warns about scammers

With society's access to today's technology, ill-intentioned scam artists have numerous ways of scamming victims. A recent increase in phone call scams have prompted the Acting Inspector General of Social Security to remind Americans utilizing Social Security benefits about these scams and how to prevent them.
