SSA's debt and SSD overpayments come under scrutiny

There has been a lot of talk about the Social Security disability system lately. Many critics hound the program, stating that the fund is mismanaged and too broad in scope. Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Social Security disability over-payed some $1.4 billion to beneficiaries at the fault of the Social Security Administration. Now, a recently published study has critics renewing their attacks on the system.

Family members can also seek Social Security disability

Many Missourians are concerned about their jobs and careers and how they can move up the corporate ladder. Though planning for one's future in his or her job is important, the truth of the matter is that a significant number of working individuals will end up disabled before they reach retirement. This means that they will be unable to work to secure a wage, and they may have to turn to Social Security disability for assistances.

Hearing loss and Social Security disability

Those Missourians who suffer from a debilitating injury, illness, or medical condition may be relieved to know that they may qualify for government assistance. Social Security disability, in particular, may provide compensation to those who are rendered unable to work on account of their condition. Yet, in order to obtain these benefits a claimant must meet government requirements. It is therefore crucial that those considering filing for disability benefits fully understand whether they qualify under the requirements.

What is the disability onset date?

Those who have suffered a debilitating injury or the onset of a serious medical condition may find themselves struggling to get by. Their inability to work leaves them without income, and their injury or illness can be costly to treat. By filing for Social Security disability, these individuals may be able to find financial relief. However, in order to acquire benefits, certain requirements must be met. These requirements can vary depending on the injury or illness on which the claim is based, but there are certain aspects that all claimants must show.
