Tackling the initial application for SSD benefits

Mental illness is usually something that builds over time, gradually becoming more of a problem if the Californian who has the condition does not get the appropriate help and medication. As time goes on, a mental impairment may become so serious that the individual is no longer able to work to earn an income. If this occurs, such an individual may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.

How addiction or alcoholism affects SSD benefits applications

There are millions of people in America who struggle with drug addiction and alcoholism, including many people in Los Angeles. Addiction is a powerful force in many people's lives, and for many, it becomes the defining characteristic of who they are. However, the reality is that it seems that addiction and alcoholism can happen to anyone. It can happen to Los Angeles residents who have worked and been successful for years, only to find themselves in a difficult position due to addiction.

A guide to preparing for the SSD process

The Social Security Disability (SSD) hearing is typically the most stressful segment of the process for those hoping to receive disability income. This is due to the discussion of how much your life has been impacted by your conditions. Luckily, there are some steps you can take prior to entering the hearing that can help you relieve stress and ensure the SSD application process is followed

Children who suffer from cancer may be eligible for SSI benefits

All types of cancer are pervasive in America. Many of our Los Angeles readers probably know a friend or relative who has battled some form of cancer, be it skin cancer, lung cancer or a blood and bone cancer, like leukemia. The people who find themselves in the unfortunate position of trying to treat cancer face the challenge bravely. But, the challenge can be even more overwhelming when the person who is suffering from cancer is a child.

Replacing income with SSD benefits

Most Los Angeles workers probably do not even think about the fact that some of the deductions that are taken out of their paychecks are contributions to the Social Security Disability (SSD) fund. That is, they probably do not think about it until they find themselves in a position where they need to rely on SSD benefits. For those Los Angeles residents who have earned enough work credits and who have a disability that will keep them from returning to work for at least 12 months, it can be a good idea to apply for these benefits that they are entitled.
