Helping you understand your Social Security Disability rights

Having ones ability to work be limited is not an easy predicament to be in. This is especially true when an injury or illness has made it difficult for individuals in Philadelphia to work for an extended period of time, or to ever return to work. Such a situation likely presents financial challenges, making it impossible to make ends meet. In these matters, there are government programs available that could provide financial assistance; however, obtaining Social Security Disability, or SSD benefits, is not always easy.

What steps to take when you are denied SSD benefits

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is not an easy process. While applicants in Philadelphia and elsewhere might count on being approved, the fact is that many applicants are denied each year. Although this can be a discouraging matter, those suffering a disability should understand that they have options available to them if they are initially denied SSD benefits.

Getting disability benefits for a mental condition

Living with a mental illness or other mental condition can be very difficult. People can spend their entire lives just fighting to live as normal of a life as possible. It may be difficult for them to complete basic tasks or to live on their own. For many of these individuals, working is out of the question. Many struggle so much just to complete everyday tasks, and adding a job to the mix would be too much.
