New rule may affect backlog of disability benefits claims

No matter how badly a person in Alabama needs them, the process of getting Social Security disability benefits is an arduous one. Not only is there the possibility that one's claim will be denied, necessitating a lengthy appeal, but it can take a long time just to get a decision from the Social Security Administration at all.

Student loan discharge could affect SSD benefits

For better or worse, many people in Mobile carry student loan balances. They may work hard to pay down these balances as much as possible. However, some of them may eventually develop a disabling condition. When their disability prevents them from working, they may have no way to pay back their student loans. That being said, relief may be available, although it comes with a catch.

Seeking SSD benefits for a mental illness can be challenging

Mental illnesses can sometimes be brushed aside when compared to physical ailments. After all, it is easy to see why a person with an amputation or cancer may have limitations, but mental illnesses carry no physical markings, and in some cases there is even a stigma challenging the validity of mental illnesses. Yet for some people in Mobile with a mental illness, life is difficult. Their mental illness may affect their ability to care for themselves, and some may even be unable to leave their homes. When this happens, they should know that it may be possible to pursue Social Security disability benefits.
