How does the SSA evaluate disability claims?

Michigan residents who are disabled from work due to an illness or injury may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. SSD benefits are available to those who are able to honestly demonstrate an inability to work at any job they are otherwise qualified to accept.

Bill would eliminate waiting period for disability benefits

Social Security Disability Insurance helps many Americans make ends meet when illness or injury prevents them from working. But for those who are terminally ill, the disability benefits often come too late. That's because there is a five-month waiting period before an eligible recipient can actually start receiving the benefits. For someone with only a few months to live, that wait may mean never receiving the benefits at all.

What are affective disorders and its SSD benefits' requirements?

Detroit residents who are suffering from a physical issue that renders them with an inability to work will be easily recognized. Therefore, it will be a less arduous process to meet the benefits' requirements for Social Security disability when there are physical problems. But what if there are mental issues such as affective disorders? Knowing the definition of these affective disorders and what they signify can help a person seek therapy and receive benefits.
