Seeking SSD benefits in conjunction with workers' comp benefits

It is clear that some work industries are more dangerous than others. Some workers in New Jersey are faced with risks such as workplace injuries and illnesses. While these might be known risks or not, when they occur they can greatly alter a persons ability to function, work and enjoy life. Thus, when an individual is disabled because of a work injury, it is vital to understand what recourses are available to you and what benefits you could recover.

One small tick bite can take a huge bite out of your life

New Jersey readers may know that Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that affects victims in different ways. Introduced into the body through one tick bite, victims may find that they experience various painful and inconvenient symptoms. In some cases, serious Lyme-related issues continue to affect a person long after the initial bite and treatment.

Helping you navigate the SSD process for mental conditions

Individuals can suffer a wide variety of ailments and conditions. While some of these are minor and easy to manage, others require much medical attention to only slightly reduce the impacts of the condition. Mental conditions can be the source of some serious disabilities suffered by those in New Jersey and elsewhere. The trouble with these conditions is that it is not always apparent or visible that a person is in fact suffering from a disabling condition. Despite this, these individuals can still seek Social Security disability benefits to help offset the financial burdens caused by their disability.

Are mental health conditions prevalent in the United States?

Not all disabilities look the same. Additionally, not all sufferers of disabilities have been battling with a disability for years. For some individuals, like those dealing with mood and substance abuse disorders, may have developed these mental conditions later in life. However, whether a person was born with a disability or acquired one later in life, this does not mean they are not suffering. Even more so, just because a person's disability is not visible on the outside does not mean that they do not have a disability and need just as much help as those living with a physical disability.

How does the Compassionate Allowance program help?

It is shocking, hearing the news that you have a terminal illness. It is an event that is hard to process, and can be challenging to initially move forward with. Depending on the severity of the disease, individuals might be motivated to start treatment right away. Others might wait to understand their options and how the possible treatment plans could impact his or her health. No matter what medical approach a patient takes, it is imperative that the available government programs are understood. Social Security disability benefits are designed to help those unable to work because of a debilitating injury or illness. Thus, those living with a terminal illness should note how they could quickly recover they benefits.
