Work injuries can lead to disability

If you have been injured at work, you may be confused as to the differences or similarities between Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) and workers' compensation benefits. While you may be eligible for benefits from both types of program as a result of your injury, there are very specific requirements for each. 

Bill could enable faster SSDI approval for terminally ill

Being a disabled worker in Ohio is not an easy situation. You find yourself unable to work and earn income. You apply for a benefit program, like Social Security disability insurance (SSDI), and you wait for the application process to run its course. You hope your application is accepted and your payments begin, but sometimes it may be months before you receive your first benefit payment.

Fibromyalgia patients may be eligible to receive SSDI benefits

Millions of people in the U.S. suffer from fibromyalgia, which is a painful condition that causes widespread pain, weakness and fatigue. Despite many patients suffering from the painful condition, many doctors did not believe that the pain actually existed. Now, a new study shows that fibromyalgia is real and it could help more individuals receive Social Security disability benefits.

VA clears nearly 3,000 from huge backlog of disability claims

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has struggled for years with a backlog of cases. Two recent wars, ongoing action by the military and aging veterans of the Vietnam war have made disabilities a common concern for many of our nation's servicemembers.

Will it soon become more difficult to obtain SSD benefits?

Individuals unable to work due to a disability depend upon the benefits provided by the Social Security Administration to help them pay their expenses. Many of these people have had to go through a complicated application process before their requests to receive the benefits are approved, which greatly increases the financial strains that they may be feeling.
