Social Security Disability Benefits for Illnesses Archives

One may be able to receive SSDI for endocrine disorders

People in Georgia are probably aware of the major organs and body parts they have and are aware of their basic functions. However, there are many parts in the body that people may not be aware of and if they have heard of them may not know their functions or what they do for the body. When these various organs and body parts stop working properly though, people become well aware of them and what they were doing for their bodies. One of these is the endocrine system.

How to receive SSDI benefits for immune deficiency disorders

Life tends to be easier for people in Georgia when they are healthy and no one likes to be sick. However, everyone is bound to get sick from time to time. These illnesses vary in severity and sometimes they are simply minor inconveniences. However, other illnesses take a long time to heal from and can make life very difficult. Some illnesses are considered chronic illnesses and the people with them will be dealing with them for the rest of their lives.

Helping you be successful with your SSD application

Being diagnosed with a serious illness or condition in Georgia can be devastating. In fact, for many individuals, it can be devastating. The diagnosis of the illness itself can be upsetting; however, going through the treatment process for the medical condition can be very overwhelming. Whether one is going through major medical treatments or is taking medications to manage the condition, the situation can be very financially challenging. This is especially true for those unable to work because of the disabling illness.

Research finds link between obesity and cancer risk

Many people in Fayetteville understand that obesity is not good for your health, but they may not realize that the health problems associated with obesity go beyond heart disease and diabetes. Recent research has shown that obesity can be linked to an increased chance of developing 13 different kinds of cancer. The American Cancer Society reports that approximately 8% of all cancers in the nation have a link to excess body weight. Moreover, cancer survivors who are obese have an increased chance of their cancer returning and have less of a chance of surviving a second time.

How do cancer treatment and its effects impact SSD benefits?

Georgia residents who receive a diagnosis of cancer will have a great deal going through their minds as they prepare for treatment and hope that it will be effective. They will consider their families, their future and, inevitably, their finances. Some may find that they cannot work because of the disease and need to remain home while they are being treated. This can be a financial hardship. Fortunately, there are Social Security disability programs that can help. However, there are important requirements with qualifying SSD benefits for illness. With cancer, one of the factors that is considered is the anticancer therapy and its effects on the person. Knowing how this is assessed is critical to being approved for SSD.

The SSA has a five-step process to decide if you are disabled

If you have a medical condition that prevents you from earning a living, you may consider applying for Social Security Disability benefits. Once you file your application to receive SSDI benefits for illness, the Social Security Administration will begin its five-step evaluation process to determine whether you are disabled under the SSA's definition of disability.

Social Security Disability for early-onset Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's disease is a debilitating disease that can cause serious mental and physical disability over time. While many people assume that Alzheimer's only affects people over the age of 65, statistics show that up to five percent of the people that have Alzheimer's have early-onset Alzheimer's starting in their 40s and 50s.

Mental disorders may qualify for SSD benefits

According to the Social Security Administration, both physical disabilities and mental disorders could keep you out of work and qualify you for benefits. In order to qualify for SSDI benefits for illness, it is important that you prove to the SSA that you meet the necessary criteria.

Receiving Social Security disability benefits for heart disease

It is no surprise that many Georgia residents with heart disease are unable to work and must rely on Social Security disability benefits for financial support. However, the Social Security Administration will not automatically grant you SSDI benefits for illnesses just because you had a heart attack. The SSA has specific criteria that you must meet to qualify for benefits.

What respiratory disorders qualify for SSD benefits?

A respiratory disorder can be debilitating to such an extent that it impairs an individual's ability to work, resulting in lost wages and an the potential inability to make ends meet. Those workers who are unable to remain on the job may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. These benefits will not replace all the income or wages lost due to disease, but they will help to relieve some of the financial stress created by wage loss.
