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.

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.

Will Social Security require my psychotherapy information?

Some people who apply for Social Security Disability in Michigan suffer from mental health issues. Naturally, if you are one of these individuals, you might be concerned about the Social Security Administration (SSA) asking for records that reveal your personal conversations with your mental health professional. While it is true that the SSA needs records from your doctor to secure your disability benefits, the SSA will also offer you privacy for your sensitive information.

Why is the use of disability benefits on the rise?

Like many other people in Michigan, you may be worried about the dismal state of Social Security benefits, and with good reason.

For some time now, people have spread rumors that Social Security might not exist when they retire. This has led to some degree of panic across Michigan. However, is it true?
