Women receives $200K for SSDI collection violations

If you have become disabled while working in Ohio, because of either injuries or an illness, you may qualify for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits. Unlike workers' compensation benefits, if you have worked for the required time to be eligible for SSDI, it does not matter if your disabling condition was work related. Because benefits like SSDI are designed to help those who are unable to work and have no other source of income, they typically cannot be garnished by a debt collector.

When you just can't deal with it

For residents of Columbus or across Ohio who suffer from mental illness, obtaining Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits can be challenging. In addition to all of the usual difficulties facing anyone who applies for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA), what with the delays and requests for additional information and more medical records, there are the issues that are specific to mental impairments or conditions.

Growth of SSDI program is no surprise

The Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) program has grown substantially over the last 50 years. Recently, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has announced that the program's trust fund will be exhausted within the next few years absent action by Congress. This has prompted calls for reform of the program. Unfortunately, the analysis really does not address the difficulties the program has, and instead become an excuse to cut the program.

Could a test provide certainty for diagnosing fibromyalgia?

A long-term, chronic illness is bad enough, but one of the most frustrating elements of those suffering from fibromyalgia is the difficulty of convincing others your pain in real. If the condition has made it impossible for you to hold a job, the more significant issue becomes convincing the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you have a valid claim for Social Security disability benefits (SSDI) benefits.
