Those denied SSD benefits waiting up to 2 years for hearing

Living with a disability can be challenging. While individuals with disabilities are able to go through life just like anyone else, those suffering from severe disabilities can find it difficult to work a job or even care for him or herself. Thus, social security disability benefits can be extremely beneficial in these matters. The SSA has provided a program that essentially provides financial assistance to those unable to meet his or her basic needs because of a disability preventing them from making a livable income.

Restless leg syndrome: a real condition and potential disability

Restless legs syndrome is a medical condition that many in New Jersey do not know about. Often misunderstood, many dismiss the severity of the condition or the existence of the condition altogether. For some individuals who suffer from this condition, it could actually impact their ability to work and hold gainful employment. 

Guiding you through the SSD process for a serious illness

No one expects to be diagnosed with a serious illness. The news can come as a huge shock, causing it to take much time to fully process. Whether it is a serious disease like cancer or a work-related condition, it is important for individuals to understand what this means for their future. A severe medical condition could mean being unable to work, making it even more challenging to meet one's basic needs. In these matters, taking the time to understand resources and programs that offer assistance to those living with a disabling illness can be extremely beneficial.

What is the appeals process for a denied SSD claim?

Deciding to file for disability benefits is not always an easy choice. Even when you strongly believe that you qualify for Social Security disability and find it necessary to obtain these benefits, it is a major step to file for these benefits. The process requires much evidence and documentation, making it an overwhelming process. However, applicants shouldn't let the application process or the fear of being denied deter them from applying. The ability to seek reconsideration or file an appeal is not as daunting as some might think.

Seeking SSD benefits for rheumatoid arthritis

We all suffer aches and pains at some point in our lives. Whether they are simply the result of over exertion, injury or a larger medical issue, it is important to take proper steps to medically address these pains. In some unfortunate cases, individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere suffer pain because of a worsening medical condition. These conditions could develop into a debilitating condition, causing some individuals to be unable to work.

Qualifying neurocognitive disorders in children for SDD benefits

Living with a disability can feel just like that, disabling and debilitating. It can be even more challenging when it is not a visible physical impairment. Those living with a mental condition face daily challenges; however, the general public may not see this or fully understand this. Thus, some do not believe those suffering from a mental illness, whether acquired at birth or later in life, deserve to enjoy the same benefits as those living with a physical impairment.
