Your mental health and eligibility for disability benefits

You know that Alabama residents with certain medical conditions or those who suffered debilitating injuries in accidents could be eligible for disability benefits if they are no longer able to work. However, you may not be aware of the fact that Social Security disability benefits are also available to individuals who have certain mental conditions as well.

Which state has more disability recipients per capita than AL?

Being named the recipient of disability benefits isn't something to take lightly. Generally, there is a process associated with being awarded disability benefits. This is because a person needs to prove that they themselves or one of their dependents are in need of disability due to a hardship, medical condition or other scenario that qualifies said person for Social Security disability. Since SSD is a federal program the data is trackable and comparable from state-to-state.

Injury and an inability to work components of seeking SSD

When it comes to a person's health and their ability to earn a living wage, it would be much easier if those goals weren't hindered in any way. For many Mobile residents, their ability to work has never been an issue so the thought couldn't be further from their mind. For others, their inability to work due to injury is all they can think about as its impact on a person's life can be enormous. How can one help to off-set the cost of living when they aren't able to make ends meet?

Veterans' health care crisis avoided per Senate's approval

Veterans deserve the utmost care and respect. When a military member is honorably discharged from the military, they are granted access to several benefits for themselves and their family, including access to VA medical care. While this may initially sound great, the VA has been under the microscope lately relating to its ability to care for its patients, who are veterans. The changes are still unfolding, and, luckily, spending bills were approved by the Senate to fund the rapid changes being made to the VA in hopes of caring for veterans.

The Representative Payment Program may help caregivers in Mobile

At some point in a person's life, they often become a caregiver for a loved one. Whether it's an aging parent, a disabled child or a friend in need, it's good to look out for the important people in your life. When a person in Mobile is a primary caretaker, it usually means the injured or ill person is unable to complete simple daily tasks that most people master every day, like feeding themselves, paying their bills or even cleaning the house. If a person is unable to do those things, it's very possible that they won't be able to effectively oversee the management of SSI Supplemental Security Income.
