How your income and resources impact SSI eligibility

Our readers in Alabama may know that Supplemental Security Income is a benefit that is designed by the government to help some of the most financially disadvantaged individuals out there. However, what is lesser known about SSI is that there are strict eligibility guidelines that must be met to be approved to receive SSI. An applicant's income and financial resources could impact SSI eligibility.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE ONE STEP AT A TIME

I am the Chair for the 2nd year for the Making Strides walk here in my hometown of Mobile, Alabama. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk of South Alabama is a walk to raise funds to end the fight against breast cancer. The American Cancer Society and our committee consists of men and women in all avenues of life who have come together to make this walk successful. We have so many people who have been touched by breast cancer, both survivors and fighters, friends and family right here in our city that this walk is vital to the future of those who face this disease.

Adjusting to post-service life, a significant issue for veterans

With the recent anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks that changed the very nature of our country and, indeed, the world, it is important to remember that America has been on a "war footing" for over a decade now. Thousands of young men and women in our country are veterans who have been exposed to the traumatizing nature of war. Adjusting to post-service life for these veterans when their time in the service is over can be a significant issue.

Suffering an injury could mean you are eligible for SSD benefits

There are millions of people in America who receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. For most of these people, SSD benefits are a crucial financial lifeline, since the individuals who are eligible to receive SSD benefits are no longer able to work, for the most part. Alabama residents may find that they are eligible to receive SSD benefits for a variety of reasons. Suffering an injury could be one such reason.

Seeking disability benefits for fibromyalgia

Like many who suffer from the symptoms of fibromyalgia, you have probably heard more than once that it is all in your head. In fact, your own doctor may have suggested this while writing you yet another prescription for pain medication or anxiety.

My Role as the Volunteer Lead for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

This year, I have had the privilege of being the Volunteer Lead for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The walk this year will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. in Bienville Square in Mobile, Alabama. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a 3.5 mile walk throughout downtown Mobile, Alabama where thousands of people will walk to celebrate and honor breast cancer survivors and caregivers. The walk not only celebrates survivors but also serves to educate the community about prevention and detection so as to help reduce the risk of breast cancer and to raise funds to help end breast cancer. Money raised at the event will fund research to help find a cure for breast cancer as well as provides information and help to those who are currently battling breast cancer.

What do you need to know about heart disease and SSD benefits?

Many of our readers in Alabama know someone who suffers from some form of heart disease. This health condition can come in many different forms, but all can result in a significantly detrimental effect on a person and that person's ability to work and earn an income.
