Work credits and Social Security Disability benefits

Anyone who has ever applied for Social Security Disability benefits could tell our readers that, in many cases, there is quite a bit that goes into the application process. Of course, that makes sense, when you think about it - applicants are seeking a long-term financial benefit from the federal government, and it is important to ensure that these financial resources go to those who need and deserve them. But if you have been paying into the system and you truly have a disabling medical condition, there is a good chance that your application will be approved.

Those receiving SSD benefits can use the "Ticket to Work" program

There is quite a bit of a negative perception out there today about people who receive Social Security Disability benefits. The news media doesn't exactly shed the best light on this important financial safety net, and politicians can be overly broad and biting in their critique of the program and how the Social Security Administration runs it. But the fact is that many people who are receiving SSD benefits view the arrangement as temporary - they want to get back to work as soon as possible.

The right approach to applying for SSD benefits in Ohio

It can be hard for many people to comprehend the feeling of working all your life and then, because of some injury or illness, you find yourself "disabled."

NFL legend speaks out about head injuries

In what appears to be a nearly monthly trend, another former National Football League player has come out to talk about his experiences with dealing with head injuries related to his career as a professional football player. Legendary defensive tackle and Hall of Famer Warren Sapp recently announced that he would be donating his brain to the Concussion Legacy Foundation after his death for research into head injuries.

What can I expect during a Social Security appeal?

New budget plan includes cuts to Social Security disability
