Disability benefits and the compassionate allowance

There are a lot of medical conditions that can leave an individual unable to work. Some medical issues affecting mental health, the skeletal system and the immune system are just a few that may leave an individual disabled. Coping with the physical realities of one of these disabling conditions can be challenging in and of itself, but the stark truth is that these individuals often struggle to find the financial resources needed to adequately treat their medical condition and maintain everyday stability. The Social Security disability system may provide relief to those who qualify, but the fact remains that securing these benefits can take a significant amount of time, especially if an initial claim is denied and an appeal is warranted.

What should I know about a Social Security disability review?

Massachusetts residents who are suffering from an injury, illness or condition that prevents them from working or limits their ability to work could be approved for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Simply being approved for disability does not mean that the person will continue to get the benefits indefinitely. There are rules that must be adhered to and the Social Security Administration (SSA) requires that the recipient take part in periodic disability reviews to ensure that there has not been an improvement and the person should continue getting SSD benefits. Understanding disability reviews is important to maintaining the benefits.

Can you appeal a denied Social Security Disability claim?

When Massachusetts residents suffer from an injury, illness or condition that leaves them unable to work, Social Security Disability benefits can be extraordinarily helpful. When applying for disability benefits, it is not a guarantee that the initial application will be approved. Many people are dispirited by this information. However, they should know that an appeal can be effective to get an approval even after the claim was first denied.

Mental disorders and SSDI benefits

Many people in the Boston - North Salem area suffer from sharp mood swings that can interfere with their ability to carry out the functions of their job. The victims of this ailment may have difficulty earning a living because they are unable to hold steady employment. If the disability were caused by a physical malady, these victims would most likely not hesitate to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. When a mental disorder is the cause of the disability, however, victims are less likely to seek federal assistance. While a mental illness is difficult to diagnose and verify because it rarely presents objective symptoms, these disorders are nevertheless eligible for SSDI benefits if the basic eligibility requirements are met.

Obtaining SSDI benefits for back pain

One of the most common complaints made by people who work with their hands or legs is lower back pain. Many residents of North Andover and surrounding communities have experienced high levels of lower back pain; in many such cases, the pain becomes disabling and the victim is no longer able to work. The Social Security Administration recognizes the disabling potential of back pain, and it has established a number of spinal disorders that may qualify the victim for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
