Necessary preparations before applying for SSD benefits

As many Missouri residents may be aware, there are set guidelines that the Social Security Administration uses to determine whether an individual is eligible to obtain Social Security disability benefits. These guidelines require a representative from SSA to interview a potential beneficiary and, based on that representative's typically hour long interaction, the applicant's request for benefits are either granted or denied.

Effects of a workers' compensation case on SSD benefits

If a worker in Missouri is injured, usually the first action that the person needs to take is to file a workers' compensation claim. However, filing a workers' compensation claim can affect that worker's Social Security Disability benefits for injury. The worker may be entitled to benefits or may become eligible for benefits based on the injury in the workplace. There is a possibility that the worker's Social Security Disability claim may be affected and, therefore, every worker must understand those potential consequences.

Filing for social security disability benefits may not be easy

Many Missourians like to be self-sufficient. They work hard, save and plan for emergency situations. People who are disabled may get assistance from the Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, program to help maintain this independence. However, receiving disability benefits is not easy.

Veteran's issues include research on PTSD sexual assault claims

Missourians know that Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be experienced by any person involved in a catastrophic incident. Flashbacks of the incident may occur even a few months after the occurrence of the violent event. An accident, assault and warfare are some reasons for experiencing PTSD. A military veteran is also at risk for PTSD due to the nature of employment or other life events. A blog post on our website discusses veterans' issues related to filing PTSD sexual assault claims.
