What is COLA and how will it affect SSD benefits in 2017?

Social security disability is a federal program that's creation was conceived with the purpose of supporting those who cannot support themselves. When someone receives a social security disability award, it is generally a set amount that cannot be changed without petitioning for a change in amount. However, once in a while increases are approved for social security disability without request. One such increase is called COLA or cost-of-living adjustment.

Work accident injury could qualify for social security disability

There are so many Fayetteville workers that are upstanding and responsible workers. Many work full or part-time for years without having any incident or injury. Meanwhile, every worker pays a portion of their earnings into federally obligated social security. However, some need to access social security funds prior to retirement. Social security disability exists for the sole reason of helping injured or ill workers make ends meet in the short or long-term.

President-elect hints at privatization of veterans' healthcare

Those that have served our country have often made immense sacrifice. The sacrifices made by our military, both current and retired, could be time away from family or even sacrifices of health or well-being. This is a huge reason why military members and veterans are offered healthcare benefits through the government. However, there has been talk that the new president-elect is thinking of privatizing veterans' benefits, specifically, veterans' healthcare.

Mental health can qualify for SSDI benefits for illness

Mental health diagnoses and treatment has come a long way in the last several decades. There was once a time when mental health issues were not even considered a medical illness. Thankfully, today there are medical diagnoses and treatments that can aid those suffering from mental illness. Just like with any illness, the ability to work when suffering from illness can be compromised.
