Workplace accident ruled accidental on Ohio River

This boat crash that took place on the Ohio River has been reported as being a workplace accident, but the employees hurt may still need to be treated for their injuries. If you're in an accident like this, despite no one being at fault, you are able to seek compensation through worker's compensation. Workplace accidents caused by safety issues or poor regulations should be discussed with someone who can help you get the compensation you deserve.

SSDI faces a 20 percent benefit cut

Congressional inaction on the matter of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is approaching a crisis. While SSDI has faced similar funding crises before, this time is different. Congress has been so disabled by partisan bickering and gridlock, that while many predict Congress cannot allow the exhaustion of the SSDI trust fund to cripple benefits to the programs recipients, the experience of the last few years is not reassuring.

Republic Steel in Ohio has minor explosion resulting in injuries

You may have recently heard about three workers who were injured in an explosion at the Republic Steel in Lorain Township. Workplace accidents like this don't happen often, but in this case, it led to all three people having to be life-flighted to local hospitals. If you're hurt at work like these individuals, you may want to consider seeking compensation from workers' compensation, just like they may want to do.

SSA plans to close more field offices

Sometimes, you need a human touch. While the internet is very useful, and enables many people to quickly find a great variety of information, for many situations, there is no substitute for sitting down with a real person, and going over paperwork, piece by piece. In a recently released planning document, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has indicated that it has plans to move more operations to an internet basis.

SSA still troubled with lengthy SSDI hearing backlogs

Backlogs and delays in receiving disability benefits can cause real harm. As the scheduling scandal from the Veterans Affairs hospitals has demonstrated, in some cases, delays can be so significant that a patient may die before they receive treatment. For programs like Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), delays can be so lengthy as to lead to applicants filing bankruptcy or dying prior to having their claim for disability benefits accepted.

Social Security Administration tries to reclaim invalid debt

When you're hurt at work, you deserve to seek compensation for your injuries. In many cases, Social Security disability will kick in to help provide you with the benefits you need. One thing you will want to make sure of is that you're receiving the right amount of money for your disability, or you could end up in trouble with the Social Security Administration. That responsibility, though, should not fall entirely on you or your children. According to this article, a father's children ended up with bills related to Social Security overpayments, but at least one of them has finally been cleared of the debt.

Disability benefits can require a great deal of work to obtain

A great number of illnesses and medical conditions can leave an individual disabled. A stroke can partially paralyze one side of a body, lung cancer can limit the amount of physical activity one is capable of and back injuries can make it impossible to lift significant weight or remain on one's feet for long hours.

Finding may help unlock questions surrounding schizophrenia

Few people can imagine what it would be like to have their lives be turned upside down essentially overnight. However, the sudden onset of an illness or catastrophic injury can do this. As a result, people and their loved ones are forced to make life adjustments at a moment's notice.
