When Michigan residents are receiving Social Security Disability benefits, they must be aware that the Social Security Administration will conduct periodic reviews of the illness, condition or disability that warranted the benefits. This is true whether the person is receiving Social Security Income or Social Security Disability. It is important to understand how this review process works and what to do in the event that the benefits are discontinued. In general, if the claimant has not experienced an improvement in the issue or if the claimant cannot work, the benefits will continue. During the review, the claimant will be afforded the chance to show that the benefits should continue.
If a Michigan resident becomes disabled, it's important that he or she obtain the help needed for the financial difficulty that a disability entails. Sometimes, a disability is such that the person can no longer continue in the same type of job, or even continue working at all. In these situations, the disabled person may consider applying for Social Security Disability. This is a "lifeline" of sorts for people who can no longer work and have bills to pay.
