Should I seek disability benefits if I have kidney disease?

If you're a regular visitor to our blog, you know that we not only like to talk about topics concerning Social Security disability benefits, we also like to answer our readers' questions as well. From "How do you apply?" to "What happens if my claim is denied?", we always try to make sure that we are providing our readers with the information that they need to make the best decision for their situation.

The rules change that could impact your disability benefits

If you're a regular visitor to our blog, then chances are you've read a number of our posts. From procedural questions to explanations on why having an attorney during the appeals process is a good idea, we've talked about a wide variety of topics so as to give our Westbury readers a better understanding of just how complex the Social Security Administration can be.

The 2016 budget cut that is targeting people with disabilities

When someone collects Social Security disability, the amount they receive is typically modest compared to what they had been making when they were still working. That's because disability benefits are based on your average lifetime earnings, which is then added to a complex equation to determine how much you should receive. Disability payments may be lower because the ALE takes into consideration any low-income jobs you may have had.

Proving disability even if it's not a compassionate allowance

If you're a regular visitor to our blog then you probably already know that the Social Security Administration has a set of guidelines it uses in order to determine if someone is disabled or not. As you know, this is an important part in determining whether a person is eligible for disability benefits or not and whether they should receive federal assistance down the road.

Kidney disease and the Compassionate Allowance program

One out of three Americans has a significant risk of developing kidney disease, and there are 20 million Americans suffering from chronic kidney disease. Many individuals do not even know that they suffer from kidney disease. In the instance of one individual, he was not aware he suffered from kidney disease until he became ill while driving.

Do you have a disabling injury and can't work? SSD can help

No one ever wants to feel that sudden twinge of pain in an area of their body. That's because more often than not, this is an indicator that you have suffered an injury. But when that pain continues, most people know that they have a more serious problem on their hands and may need treatments that can result in costly medical bills and even time away from work.
