Wounded veterans in Los Angeles may be eligible for SSD benefits

Our nation recently celebrated Veterans Day, a holiday that commemorates the sacrifices that so many of our fellow Americans make so that the rest of us can enjoy our freedoms. But, with the war-torn years that have followed in the wake of 9/11, our country has more wounded veterans than it has had in many years. While the Veterans Administration is in place to help all members of military service, including those who have suffered injuries and illnesses due to their service, most of our readers have seen the news headlines about the challenges that particular agency has been facing over the last several years.

Why the right help is so important when applying for SSD benefits

Facing a disability, whether mental or physical, can be difficult for any Los Angeles resident. For those who are dealing with a mental disability, the issue may have developed over a period of years into an issue that is so serious that the individual is unable to work any longer. Counseling sessions and medication might help, but sometimes these individuals simply cannot overcome the symptoms of their mental illness and participate in the workforce.

What mental disorders can lead to receiving SSD benefits?

Individuals and organizations throughout the country are working every day to reduce the stigma that many perceive as being attached to those who suffer from a mental health condition. It is believed that the more people come to understand the issues that those who suffer from mental disorders are dealing with, the more accepting they will be. This is a laudable goal, bolstered by the fact that many people are able to lead productive lives as they cope with their mental illness. However, not all people who suffer from a mental illness are that lucky.

Fibromyalgia may make you eligible for SSD benefits

Millions of Americans find that they feel tired or have muscle pain on a regular basis, but have no obvious cause for these symptoms. According to the National Institute of Health, these people may suffer from a condition known as fibromyalgia, and a diagnosis may make them eligible for SSD benefits.

Social Security Disability has helped many Americans for 60 years

Government programs can get a lot of negative press coverage, which sometimes makes it difficult to see that these programs actually do help millions of Americans. In the case of Social Security Disability, it is a program that has been around for 60 years.
