Social Security Disability benefits have been established throughout the United States, including Michigan, to aid residents unable to work due to a long-term disability. Disabilities include any physical or mental condition that prohibits a worker from his or her current position or to perform substantial work with other forms of employment, as well.
People in Wayne who are having medical issues that they believe meet the federal regulations to be granted assistance from the government are often concerned with whether or not they'll be approved for benefits. There are certain federal regulations that must be met for the granting of Social Security disability benefits.

That issue has been hanging over the program for years and Congress is taking steps to deal with it.
