You can't always plan for a disabling work-related injury

Planning for the unexpected has become a big part of the American culture. There are even popular television shows, such as "Doomsday Preppers," that highlight the steps that many people take to do their best to be prepared for bad situations. In Los Angeles, many people identify with this need to be prepared, as our history with earthquakes can leave some people nervous about what could occur at any moment. But, as prepared as we try to be, there aren't many people who are prepared to become disabled due to a work-related injury.

The interplay between income, assets and SSD benefits

As our Los Angeles readers may have seen in previous posts on this blog, there can be quite a few issues and questions that pop up when a person is beginning the application process for Social Security disability benefits. Many people may not know whether or not they have the requisite work credits to qualify, or they may not know whether or not their medical condition meets the definition of "disability" that is used by the Social Security Administration. Among all of the possible questions, some Los Angeles residents may wonder whether or not the amount of assets they own will play a role in determining whether or not they will be awarded Social Security disability benefits.

What are some of the most common blood diseases?

There are quite a few diseases that can leave a Los Angeles resident disabled and unable to work to earn an income. Cancer and heart disease are some of the most common illnesses that can diminish a person's ability to remain in the workforce, but there are other diseases that can be equally debilitating. A range of blood diseases are in this category. So, what are some of the most common blood diseases?

What are the basic requirements for SSD benefits?

Many Los Angeles residents might qualify to receive Social Security disability benefits, and they don't even know it. They may have suffered an injury in a work accident, or perhaps they have been diagnosed with a serious illness that prevents them from working. Regardless of the circumstances that lead to a person's disability, they will probably have the same question: What are the basic requirements to qualify to receive SSD benefits?

Applying for California SSD benefits due to mental impairments

Californians are coming to understand that millions of Americans are living every day with a mental disease. For some Californians, the issue can be addressed with medication and therapy, and they are able to cope with the mental impairment and still maintain employment. But, for many others, the mental illness is too much to overcome and still be a part of the workforce. For people who find themselves in this position, applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits for the illness could be a possibility.

Waiting for a California judge to hear an appeal

Putting together an application for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be stressful. Californians who are familiar with previous posts here know that there is quite a bit of information that the Social Security Administration will need to review to make a determination regarding an applicant's qualifications to receive SSD benefits. But, for about 60 percent of applicants, there is a bigger problem: being denied benefits.

Where can Californians find answers after a disabling injury?

When Los Angeles residents suffer injuries that leave them disabled and unable to work, their heads are probably spinning from worrying over their financial concerns. The primary concern for many people who are unable to work due to a disability is quite simple: How will I take care of my living expenses? When the questions start adding up, Los Angeles residents will begin to look for answers. So, where can they look?

What resources are available for Californians with disabilities?

There are thousands of Los Angeles residents who live with a disability. For some, it is a physical disability, and they have to learn to do everyday tasks despite their limitations. For others, it is a mental disability, and they do their best to take their prescribed medications and see the medical professionals who will help them get through the day. Many of these people will qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits when their disability prevents them from working. But, other than SSD benefits, what other resources are available for people who live with disabilities?

How the Social Security Administration helps California veterans

When our California readers envision the type of people who receive Social Security Disability benefits, they probably think of the average, hard-working American who had the unfortunate luck of either suffering an injury at work or being diagnosed with a significant illness. Our California readers may not think of the possibility that members of the United States armed services who are injured may be able to receive Social Security Disability benefits as well.

Avoiding one big mistake when applying for Californis SSD

Our Los Angeles readers know that Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits provide a significant financial lifeline to millions of Americans throughout the country. Whether these individuals were injured in a work accident, or they have been diagnosed with a significant illness that limits there capabilities, SSD benefits make day-to-day expenses easier for recipients. That is why, at our law firm, we do our best to make sure that Los Angeles residents who are applying for these benefits are taking the steps they need to be approved.
