Arthritis and Social Security Disability Benefits

Many workers experience painful health problems that make it extremely difficult for them to hold down a full-time job. When the condition is serious enough to prevent them from working, they may be eligible to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits are provided by the Social Security Administration to workers suffering from certain injuries and illnesses that have been recognized as disabling.

Huntington's Disease to be Added to Social Security Administration's List of Compassionate Allowances

Diabetes: Complications Could be Disabling

There has been an increase in the number of people suffering from diabetes. A majority of diabetes cases are type 2 diabetes, which generally affects adults. Occasionally, diabetes can cause severe complications that make it impossible for someone to hold down a job. These individuals may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Income benefits if they meet certain qualifications.
