If you are familiar with our blog, then you know that Social Security Disability benefits may be available to you if you meet certain federal requirements. Though the initial amount paid to you through your benefits may be helpful, as was discussed in previous posts, they can be changed after a reevaluation of your disability. But your benefit amount can change under other circumstances, too. One of the more common factors that can affect your benefits is your receipt of other benefits.
Those Missourians who suffer from disability know that it is an ongoing struggle. Everyday tasks can continue to be difficult or impossible, and living what many others deem as a 'normal life' may be unrealistic. The long-term effects of disability are not contained to the physical, however. They also drastically impact an individual's finances, as wages may be lost and medical expenses can soar. This is why it is critical for those suffering from disability to consider seeking Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
Disabled Missourians who are awarded Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can feel a sense of relief, and rightly so. The monthly payments provided by this program can be a financial stabilizer, affording disabled individuals the ability to maintain their normal life as fully as possible. Yet, many fail to realize that obtaining SSD benefits does not mean that the benefits are indefinite. As will be discussed in this post, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has a review process in place aimed at weeding out individuals who no longer fit the criteria for being deemed "disabled."
