Can Compassionate Allowances help Michigan residents?

Sometimes a Michigan resident who needs SSD benefits has a serious need due to the nature of his or her disability. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration has what are known as Compassionate Allowances to provide benefits more quickly to those with extremely serious medical conditions when it is obvious that such condition meets the requirements of obtaining Social Security disability benefits.

Attorneys advise Michigan residents seeking SSD benefits

Just because you can do something for yourself, that does not mean you always should. Oftentimes, a professional in a particular field can handle an issue better than someone without the same knowledge and experience might be able to. This is particularly true in the realm of applying for Social Security disability benefits. It is possible to apply for benefits without a lawyer, but a lawyer experienced with the ins and outs of the application and appeals processes can be of great assistance.

Multiple levels available to appeal denied SSD claim

Receiving a denial for a Social Security disability claim can be frustrating for a Michigan resident. Fortunately, however, the Social Security Administration provides an appeals process for someone who has been denied SSD benefits. A person facing a denied Social Security disability claim has four levels of appeals to pursue.

What property can I own and qualify for SSI benefits?

What a Michigan resident owns matters for whether he or she will qualify for Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, benefits. There are property limits the government imposes that limit how much a person can own and still obtain benefits. For a person to obtain SSI benefits, his or her assets must be worth $2,000 or less. A couple may own $3,000 or less of assets and obtain SSI benefits.
