Understanding SSDI requirements for spinal cord injuries

Being unable to work at your Michigan job due to a back injury is often extremely stressful and frustrating, especially when a doctor tells you it may take months or years to recover. Depending on the exact nature of your condition, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, which helps cover your living costs until you return to work. The Social Security Administration has strict requirements you must meet to be eligible for SSDI payments. At Adler Firm, PLLC, we understand the SSDI requirements and have helped many clients obtain benefits for back and spinal cord injuries.

SSDI benefits and self-employment

Some Michigan residents rely on Social Security Disability Insurance benefits in order to pay bills after becoming ill or injured and losing the ability to work. However, if an individual's health improves, he or she may return to work. The Social Security Administration provides guides and additional resources to help beneficiaries return to the workforce, but things may be more complicated for individuals who are self-employed.

Important updates on the Social Security 2100 Act

It has been common knowledge for some time that millennials in Michigan may be paying into a Social Security fund that they may not enjoy the benefits of when they need it. In February of this year, the New York Times reported that democrats were on the case to slow the rising costs of Social Security. They did so by introducing the Social Security 2100 Act.

New bill may protect veterans from losing disability money

When veterans return to Michigan from war, many have disabilities. In fact, there are soldiers who become disabled while in training due to accidents involving falls and motor vehicle crashes. Regardless of the reason for their disability, many of these men and women rely on Social Security Disability checks to cover necessary expenses, particularly if they are unable to work.

How does Social Security evaluate skin disorders?

Social Security offers disability benefits for a wide range of disorders and disabilities, including people who suffer from skin disorders. Maladies of the skin can be painful and hamper a person’s ability to work in Michigan, which is why the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides disability benefits for these conditions. If you have a need for disability, you must be ready to supply the right documentation and evidence of your condition.

New plans in place to expand Social Security

Many people with disabilities in Michigan rely on Social Security benefits to make ends meet. Without these benefits, they would not be able to clothe and feed themselves, or pay for medical care. Some people may even rely on these benefits to take care of dependents for whom they are responsible. Unfortunately, the Social Security fund is running out.

Hearing loss one of the costliest disabilities

Hearing loss can be a devastating reality, whether it is due to a birth defect, trauma or a workplace incident. Yet, people in Michigan are sometimes more likely to have Viagra insured for losing the ability to perform sexually than having their medical bills for hearing loss covered. In fact, according to CNN, hearing loss is not even considered an official disability.

Managing your Social Security disability benefits

Over the past few years, people in Michigan have been concerned about the state of Social Security funding. Report after report has warned that the fund is running short, including reports from the Social Security Administration itself. In June of 2018, CNBC finally reported some good news when it shared that the number of people applying for disability had declined sharply.

Heart conditions and social security disability

The heart is the engine that drives the body and when this organ fails, death is most often the result. Even so, not all heart conditions may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits in Michigan. In fact, even a heart attack is not enough on its own to qualify. Social Security Disability serves workers who may not be able to return to work in the next 12 months, but many people who suffer from a heart attack are back behind the desk in a few weeks to a few months.

How can I cope with depression?

Depression is quite common after a disability occurs, as many people have a hard time adjusting to their new reality. Getting assistance with these issues is crucial to living a full and happy life, according to Very Well Health.
