When multiple illnesses prevent work, know your rights

People in Pennsylvania get sick all of the time. Especially as the winter is ending, many individuals may be looking forward to a break from the colds and flus that winter brings. However, some illness are much more serious than others. Some illnesses are so severe that individuals are unable to work.

Sometimes, no one illness is responsible for a person's inability to work. Instead, it's multiple illnesses or health problems combined that make it difficult for individuals to be healthy enough for work. In these cases, many individuals need to rely on Social Security Disability benefits in order to meet their financial obligations. These benefits provide monthly income for individuals who are otherwise unable to work.

In these situations, it is very important that people paint a full picture of their health situation to the Social Security Administration. In the initial application for SSD benefits, people need to be very clear about their physical and emotional issues. By omitting details, individuals can see their applications denied. Subsequently, appeals can be more difficult since these details were not originally included in the application.

The attorneys at Kranso, Kranso and Onwudinjo understand how detailed SSD petitions need to be. We can help individuals explain their comprehensive health situation. We may see details in a different light that could help the SSA make a decision about a person's case.

Our compassionate attorneys know just how important these benefits are to Pennsylvania residents. We can work hard to provide every detail the SSA needs to come to a favorable result. When multiple health problems combine to make it impossible for a person to work it can be emotionally and financially difficult. Our attorneys can work on these individuals to help them received some financial security. For more information about our law firm and SSD benefits, please see our website.
