Millions of Americans suffer from some form of heart disease.

Approximately 720,000 people per year have a heart attack. Heart disease is a serious public health concern.

What potential changes are on the horizon for SSD benefits?

Most of our Los Angeles readers have probably seen the reports over the last couple of weeks detailing the new members of Congress taking their place in our nation's capital. For at least the next two years both chambers of Congress will be controlled by the Republican Party, and many experts expect to see quite a bit of legislation passed by both chambers and forwarded to the President's desk. The only question then is whether or not President Obama will sign legislation into law or veto it.

An overview of blood diseases and SSD benefits

There are all types of diseases that could lead to a Los Angeles resident qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits for illness, both mental and physical.
