How does SSDI affect my retired Social Security?

While you know you may not need to reach retirement age to receive Social Security Disability benefits, there is also the matter of your retirement benefits from regular Social Security payments.

Can I receive Social Security disability if I am obese?

While many unfairly characterize obesity as simply a personal problem, obesity can lead to mental and physical health problems that can severely impact your life and ability to function.

While your Michigan physician may be able to classify you as medically obese, the path to Social Security disability benefits is as complex as understanding the disease itself.

How often are Social Security Disability Benefits denied?

What kind of payments affect your Social Security disability?

If you become disabled, you may require funding from multiple sources to cover your medical treatment, long-term care and life expenses.
