SSA struggling with almost a million requests for SSD benefits

There are millions of people in the United States, including in Missouri, who are recipients of social security disability benefits. At the same time, there are many others who have applied for benefits and are waiting to hear from the Social Security Administration regarding their request for SSD benefits. A recent news story is sure to draw the attention of such applicants.

Understanding how the Social Security appeals process works

Although many St. Louis, Missouri, natives receive Social Security Disability benefits, many also have been denied benefits. The Social Security Administration has clear guidelines about how a person can appeal the decision to deny benefits.

How does the SSA define "Compassionate Allowances"?

Many people in St. Louis, Missouri, will rely on Social Security benefits at some stage in their lives. To receive benefits, workers pay Social Security taxes which later benefit the employee in the event of retirement, disability or illness. In return, the Social Security Administration is obligated to provide benefits to those individuals whose health conditions meet the disability standards set by Social Security Administration.

Understanding the available benefits for the mentally impaired

It is fairly well known that physically disabled Americans have access to benefits offered by the Social Security Administration. However, those suffering from mental illnesses have access as well, a fact perhaps not well known. For instance, many St. Louis, Missouri, residents who may suffer from mental disorders such as schizophrenia and autism, along with depression and anxiety-related illnesses, are also eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.

Telling apart Veterans' and Social Security disability benefits

Even without knowing the reason for a person's disability, it is understood that a disabled person faces distinct disadvantages. A disability can alter a person's way of life entirely, and often permanently. While there are programs to assist the disabled, veterans may have more services available to them than civilians.
