Spinal cord injuries can lead to a disability

There are all kinds of injuries that can cause Alabama residents to become disabled and unable to work to earn an income. However, typically only the most serious of injuries will qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Spinal cord injuries can be devastating and may qualify an Alabama resident to receive SSD benefits.

How can liver disease lead to disability?

There are many, many different reasons that Alabama residents may end up eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. All kinds of injuries and illnesses can leave workers disabled and unable to work to earn an income. Liver disease, for example, is one common illness that can leave a person disabled.

Cost-of-living increase coming for veterans' benefits

For many military veterans in Alabama, the benefits they receive are crucial to their finances. Particularly those who receive disability benefits, as they may have a limited ability to work and earn an income. Fortunately, each year Congress usually passes legislation to increase veterans' benefits with a cost-of-living adjustment. This year, according to reports, is no different.

Depressive disorders may qualify you for disability benefits

Some days are good, and some are bad. You may be tired of having to explain yourself to others, or perhaps you don't even bother. You are not upset or feeling blue. You are not weak or a hypochondriac. You have one of the most frequently misunderstood mental health conditions: depression.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

This year, I am the Co-Chair for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event. The Making Strides for Breast Cancer Board is comprised of people from all over Mobile, Alabama.  Each of us have different jobs, different interests and different lifestyles.  But what we do have in common is the drive to help in any way to find a cure for breast cancer.  Many of us on the board have been personally touched by breast cancer - some of the board members are survivors, some of the board members are family members of a survivor, and some of the board members have lost loved ones to breast cancer.  A huge part of finding a cure, is raising money for research and resources. 

Pushing through the difficult SSD benefits application process

Our readers in Alabama who are familiar with our previous posts know that the process to apply for Social Security Disability benefits can be quite arduous. The Social Security Administration is strict about the eligibility requirements that must be met for disabled workers to receive SSD benefits. At first glance, the requirements and eligibility criteria that must be met can seem pretty daunting. However, if disabled workers believe they are entitled to SSD benefits, it is important to push through what can be a difficult process.
