Our law firm fights for those with mental disorders

Medical conditions can set on suddenly or gradually over time. Regardless of how they onset, however, they can sometimes be chronic, leaving an individual unable to live a normal life. As was discussed on the blog a few weeks ago, this can be especially true for those suffering some sort of mental disorder, including those that cause anxiety attacks. These medical conditions can render you unable to work, thus making it extremely difficult to find financial stability.

2016 will not see a cost of living adjustment for SSD

Those Missourians who find themselves unable to work on account of a disability, whether due to an injury or an illness, may struggle to make ends meet. Fortunately, the Social Security disability system exists to help them. Yet, unlike their working counterparts who may see pay raises each year to aid them in coving cost of living increases, that is not necessarily the case for Social Security recipients.

What is the Social Security Disability freeze?

If you have suffered an injury or a medical condition that leaves you incapable of working, then you likely know the financial strain that can arise. Without steady income, it may be difficult for you to pay rent or mortgage, buy groceries, keep the utilities on and adequately take care of your family. This can be frustrating, particularly because this can all arise at no fault of your own. Fortunately, Social Security disability benefits may be able to help you find financial stability, but there are a lot of different aspects of this program that should be understood.

Does anxiety qualify one for Social Security Disability?

It happens to many Americans every day. They wake up in the morning and find themselves paralyzed with fear. Their anxiety is so overwhelming that they find it hard to function in a way that society has deemed as "normal." This can seriously affect an individual's life. He or she may struggle to develop and hold relationships as well as find and maintain employment. This lack of employment, in turn, can cause financial stress that can threaten to leave the sufferer destitute. This is often unfair and can even be unacceptable.

Which veterans are automatically considered disabled?

Our country owes our military members a debt that is difficult to repay. These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect our nation's freedom and our way of life, oftentimes fighting to ensure the safety of others across the world as well. When these military members come home, though, they often have extensive medical needs. They may have suffered serious injuries and mental trauma, all of which can affect his or her ability to adapt to civilian life, find work and acquire financial stability.
