How is functional limitation measured with mental illness?

Mental illness is a common problem, even for Missourians. For those whose cases are of sufficient severity to prevent them from working, it is possible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits for mental conditions. A key factor in whether an applicant will be approved for SSD benefits is the degree of functional limitation.

What are 2018 Social Security Disability Ticket to Work limits?

Many Missourians injured on the job or who have a condition that leads to an inability to work will seek and receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. However, many will want to try and get back to work at some point. There is frequently concern as to how much they can earn and what the federal requirements are when doing so. If they are using the Ticket to Work program in which they can work to see if their condition has improved sufficiently to no longer need SSD benefits, there are certain limits on how much they can earn. When considering Ticket to Work, it is wise for the person to know the 2018 limits.

SSD benefits, inability to work and assessing worker skills

For Missouri residents who are seeking Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits for injury, there are certain criteria they must meet. For some, the Residual Functional Capacity (RFC) and being able to do past relevant work is integral to a case. The Social Security Administration will consider various factors, including whether there is work available in the current economy. Knowing how the Social Security Administration (SSA) classifies occupations that workers might have done is important. They are unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled.

The challenge of seeking SSDI for an eating disorder

You have likely struggled with your eating disorder for several years, perhaps many years. An eating disorder can control many aspects of your life, making it difficult for you to function normally in society. Of course, your condition affects your health, and you may have experienced extended periods of time when you were unable to work due to ongoing treatment, hospitalization or other factors.
