Disability can easily add hunger to injury, illness

Disability can present a wide variety of challenges for families supporting one, or more, members with a serious injury, disease, or condition. Medical bills, uncertainty about health, and heavy personal strain can be brought on by disabilities of any kind. Beyond the matters of hospitals and checkbooks, however, the simple task of putting food on the table can also be threatened by a disability.

Social Security Disability and Alzheimer's Disease

Did you know that individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease are not currently eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits? Those diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's, however, are able to receive benefits as the disease was recently added to the agency's list of Compassionate Allowances. This shift in how the government views the disease demonstrates the increasing concern over where Alzheimer's and dementia are headed.

Social Security adds illnesses to Compassionate Allowances list

Anyone who has attempted to apply for Social Security disability benefits knows that it's not an easy process. Whether you're unable to work due to an injury, illness or other condition, it can be extremely frustrating to take the time to painstakingly fill out an application for benefits, only to wait for months or years before receiving them. The majority of first-time applications are denied, which can be disheartening when your condition is already consuming so much of your time, energy and money.
