We can help you understand your right to SSI

Disabilities do not discriminate. Anyone can fall victim to a serious illness or disability that keeps the person from being able to earn a living. However, everyone still has expenses that need to be paid. People need housing, food, clothing and medical care. In today's society none of these things come cheap in Pennsylvania.

How long do people need to be disabled for disability benefits?

As many people understand, an injury or ailment can last for a long time or for a short time. Sometimes illnesses come and go quickly, and others can affect a person for the rest of the person's life. While many people may hope that a particular issue is solved quickly, the Social Security Administration has set strict time lines when it comes to qualifying for Social Security disability benefits. Many may wonder, how long does a particular issue need to last in order to qualify for SSDI benefits?

Car accidents that occur during work

For many Pennsylvania employees, driving company vehicles is part of the job description. However, like other drivers, all employees who must drive are at risk for becoming involved in accidents. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or the CDC, estimates that approximately 1,275 workers die in motor vehicle accidents that occur on public roadways every year.

Levels of SSI appeal

For certain individuals Supplemental Security Income is very important. When people are unable to work because of a disability, SSI can help to provide some much needed income. In particular, disabled children, the blind and disabled individuals can benefits from the program even when they do not have significant employment histories. Sometimes this income is absolutely vital for these individuals.

Man allegedly strikes construction worker, killing him

Police reported that a road construction superintendent was struck and killed while working on Route 422 on Dec. 3. The accident allegedly occurred around 11 p.m. in North Coventry Township on the highway near its intersection with Route 100.

When can you qualify for SSDI for heart disease?

Many Americans are no stranger to heart disease. Many people are afflicted with the ailment or know someone who is. Often heart issues can be so serious that they require significant medical intervention and therapy. The condition can also keep people from work. In these cases, people may wonder if they can qualify for financial assistance from Social Security as a result of their cardiovascular problems.

We can help those suffering from mental conditions

Disabilities come in all shapes and sizes. People suffering from disabilities often need specialized care in order to best treat their condition. In some situations, SSI or SSDI can help those individuals with the financial aspects of their disability. However, like their medical care, people often need specialized help in order to get the benefits they need.
