As we have covered on this blog previously, in order to receive Social Security Disability benefits, a person must meet the Social Security Administration's definition of disability. While that process can have a lot of nuances alone, it is important to note that meeting the definition of disability is not all that is required. There are other qualifications that a person must have before the SSA will grant benefits.
As our previous post discussed, Supplemental Security Income is one type of benefit offered by the Social Security Administration. It is, of course, a little different from Social Security Disability Insurance - but how, exactly? In addition, how can children - such as those with long-term cancer - obtain coverage? There can be many questions not only about the program, but also about how to obtain benefits.
No illness is every wanted, but there are few situations that tug on the heartstrings more than learning a child has cancer. Some forms are more treatable than others, but the treatment for any cancer can be difficult even for a healthy adult. Yet, as September marks Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the focus can turn to teaching the public about the types of cancer that can affect kids - some 13,000 children diagnosed each calendar year.
Having a disabling condition can affect your ability to live your normal life, including going to work. When the condition prevents you from working entirely, you may be interested in applying for Social Security Disability benefits. But before you do so, it is good to have a full understanding of the application process so you can step forward on the right foot.
Social Security benefits are incredibly important to those in Florida who receive them, particularly when it is their sole source of income. When it comes to applying for Social Security Disability benefits, the underlying question of all is: are you disabled?
Children are often the pride and joy of their parents. Florida parents will go to great lengths to make sure their children have everything they need to be happy, healthy and safe. In some situations, however, children are facing special needs that require a lot of specialized care. Parents in these situations may feel overwhelmed with the physical and financial needs of a child.
Most Florida residents rely on some sort of income in order to meet their basic needs, such as food, housing and clothing. When a person is unable to work, and therefore cannot receive income from an employer, it can be a scary situation. People may wonder how they will secure the money they need to take care of themselves.
