Do chronic migraines qualify for disability benefits?

Migraines, as some of our readers may know, are intense headaches that occur in one side of the head. They oftentimes cause pain, light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and sometimes even visual disturbances called auras. A migraine can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, sometimes even impacting a person's ability to continue daily tasks until the headache has subsided.

Why it's easier for people over 50 to collect disability

As most people age, we slowly come to the realization that we can't do the same activities we used to be able to do when we were younger. That's because with each passing decade, the risk of injury increases along with the amount of time needed for recovery. By the time we're 50, there is a real concern that the next injury we suffer could become disabling, forcing us out of work and jeopardizing our financial stability.

Disability benefits vs. disability insurance

Imagine that you have a debilitating injury or illness. Because of your new condition, you are unable to work, possibly even for the rest of your life. Now consider your options for compensation. Do you know which ones you are eligible for or how to access them? Would you be like a lot of Americans and seek the help of a skilled lawyer because of the complexity of the situation ahead?

Can I collect more than one disability benefit at a time?

Whether you've already been through the application process or have just started, you're like a lot of Americans who are now familiar with the Social Security Administration and the many complexities of its Social Security disability system.

Is trouble on the horizon for the acting head of Social Security?

In 2008, the Social Security Administration decided to embark on a rather ambitious project in recognition of the fact that it was fighting a losing battle against the deluge of disability claims.
