Police working to reduce accidents in Michigan over the summer

The school year is wrapping up, and as the summer approaches, more and more drivers will be on Michigan roads as they vacation and travel.

If you are seeking eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits, you may have trouble with completing the application for the precise reason you need it. However, you may have a Michigan-based caretaker, friend or loved one willing to help you. If your disability, whether physical or mental, prevents you from completing the application independently, can someone you trust complete the application on your behalf?
