Preparing your claim for disability benefits

An injury can be devastating to a Philadelphia resident. Not only can an injury rob a person of his independence, it can also prevent him from holding down a paying job. A person's inability to earn an income can put him and his family in a difficult financial state of affairs.

Different disability benefit options for disability sufferers

Social Security disability benefits are an important resource for a number of disabled individuals. Because of the importance of disability benefits for disabled individuals and for many of their families, it is helpful to be aware of the different options available depending on the disabled individual's situation. There are generally two options that may be available through the Social Security Administration (SSA) for disabled individuals, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Social Security disability options for cancer sufferers

Social Security disability benefits are available to help disabled individuals suffering with disabling medical conditions and illnesses. During 2016, greater than 1 million individuals were diagnosed with cancer worldwide. National Cancer Survivors Day was recently observed in the United States. Options for those suffering with cancer may be available for them to receive disability benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA). One way that the SSA offers disability benefits is through the Compassionate Allowances list.

Receiving Medicare benefits with disability benefits

Individuals suffering from disability have many questions about their future. Whether an individual was born with an impairment or it was acquired later in life due to an injury or an illness, living with a disability can be very debilitating. For some, their disability does not prevent them living a normal life. However, others are living with a serious disability, preventing them from being about to work or perform substantial gainful activity. In those cases, Social Security disability benefits are utilized to recover necessary funds to meet their basic living needs.

What is the appeal process for denied SSI claims?

For some Philadelphia residents, having a limited income can be very financially straining. When this is due to a disability, an individual might have the opportunity to apply for certain benefits through the Social Security Administration. Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is a benefit afforded to those with limited income that have personal assets within the eligibility requirements and are determined to be 65-years-old or older, a disabled or blind adult or a disabled or blind child.

Injured workers applying for disability benefits

Suffering an unexpected injury could greatly impact the lives of individuals in Pennsylvania and elsewhere in the nation. Not only are the medical bills and treatment plans overwhelming but the emotional impacts the injury can have on the victim's life are also debilitating. Depending on the severity of the injury, an accident victim may find it difficult to maintain any gainful employment. Because of that, the injured party might need to seek out resources to offset these financial troubles caused by the injury.
