Understanding the Compassionate Allowance program

One thing you should understand as a person looking into obtaining Social Security Disability (SSD) is what a compassionate allowance is. The Compassionate Allowances program is designed to help quickly identify a disease or illness, making it faster for a person with a specified disease or illness to obtain SSD.

Disability benefits: The reality of disability in the USA

Social Security Disability is sometimes talked about as if it's something people don't deserve or that costs others money, but the reality is that it has a very important place in the United States' benefit programs for workers. Like any other part of the Social Security system, it is meant to provide a safety net for workers who get hurt before they reach the age of retirement. As of April 2013, 8.9 million workers and 2.1 million dependents relied on disability income in some way.

Dealing with Social Security denials is a difficult task

If you get denied for Social Security Disability, one of the things you may want to know is what you can do to get approved. If this isn't your first denial, then it's already a reality that you don't have many options.

You have the right to appeal if denied Social Security Disability

People find themselves in need of Social Security Disability benefits for many different reasons. Perhaps you got hurt at work, suffering a traumatic or repetitive stress injury. Maybe you experienced a motor vehicle collision that resulted in permanent injury. Perhaps a progressive illness has left you unable to work or care for yourself. Whatever the reason, you believe that Social Security Disability will help you survive, only to find your application denied.

Obtaining Social Security Disability is possible with good help

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are meant to be there for the people who need them. If you're hurt and unable to work for a long period of time, you may qualify for these benefits depending on your work history.

The importance of Social Security Disability: The facts

When some people talk about Social Security Disability (SSD), they act like it comes out of their own pockets each time someone receives it. The truth is that SSD is an insurance coverage you have to work to earn. You pay Social Security taxes over time, and if you become disabled, those benefits are available to you based on how much you've paid into the system.

Social Security Disability claim denied? Try this

The Social Security Administration (SSA) wants to make sure that your application for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is correct and that decisions are made based on factual information. As such, the SSA takes time to carefully consider what is inside each application before making a decision. Not including all pertinent information can hinder an application and result in a denial.

Migrant workers may receive Social Security disability benefits

If you are a migrant worker in California, you are doing back-breaking labor for very little money. But that is only one of the drawbacks to this career choice. For instance, are you aware that only 2 percent of migrant workers are eligible for Social Security benefits, including disability?
