Residual functional capacity in assessment of mental disorders

When a San Diego resident files a claim for Social Security disability benefits based on a medical or mental disease or disorder they must substantiate their claim with evidence. They may have to submit to evaluation in order to prove that their condition prevents them from earning an income and for each individual the process may take a different path. For individuals who file benefits claims based on mental disorders the determination of their residual functional capacities will determine if benefits will be offered.

Finding happiness through disability

If you've suddenly found your life turned upside-down, where everyday tasks have become difficult or impossible and you're unable to work, then you are likely living with some sort of disability. Learning to live with a disability can be tough, especially since we tend to take our health for granted until it is unexpectedly snatched away from us. Yet, despite your hardship, you can live a healthy and happy life. We hope that these tips will help you find the road to personal fulfillment, despite your medical condition.

Compassion and knowledge key to helping SSD claimants

Social Security disability benefits can provide a financial life raft to those who are unable to work on account of a debilitating injury or illness. That being said, not everyone who thinks they are disabled will be deemed worthy of benefits. This is because the Social Security Administration strictly scrutinizes all SSD claims it receives, looking for any reason to give a denial. So, disabled individuals need to know the evidence the SSA is looking for and how best to present it in an attempt to meet federal requirements.

SSD claim appeal wait time continues to balloon

Living with a disability is a challenge in itself; however, seeking benefits to ease a person's life can also be a struggle. Putting together a successful Social Security disability claim can take time. Of course, some of this time is spent building an initial claim that seeks to meet the federal requirements. But even those who think they have put together a strong case may see their claim denied. When this happens, the process can be lengthened considerably.

Social Security disability's evidentiary requirements

Californians who have suffered a debilitating injury or illness need to fully understand the legal options available to them. After all, financial relief may be available to those living with a disability; however, only after successfully applying for Social Security disability benefits. When obtained, these benefits can provide monthly payments to an individual suffering from a disability, allowing him or her to find the financial stability he or she deserves. Although the Social Security Administration lists the injuries and illnesses that may qualify for SSD benefits, proving that one meets the federal requirements necessary to be deemed "disabled" can be quite challenging.

Know the requirements for requesting supplemental security income

The Social Security Administration is responsible for administering a variety of government benefits programs, one of which involves supplemental security income. Supplemental security income may be available to San Diego residents who have limited incomes and who suffer from qualifying disabilities or qualify due to age. This post will discuss some of the requirements that individuals must meet to qualify for supplemental security income, though readers who wish to pursue this benefits program are encouraged to discuss their eligibility with attorneys who work in the Social Security benefits field of law.

We help get the SSD benefits application right the first time

California residents, like other residents across the country, are hard working individuals who probably would like to keep working until they are physically unable to do so anymore. They take pride in their work and the ability to provide for themselves. Which is probably why a disability setting them back can be so upsetting. It can significantly cut short their ability to earn and provide for themselves and their independence.

Understanding substantial gainful activity

Eligibility for Social Security benefits depends upon two things - a medical condition that lasts more than 12 months and an inability to complete work. Understanding what is meant by an inability to work is very important because if the person reviewing the application determines that the applicant is able to engage in substantial gainful activity, he or she will be denied SSD benefits.

SSD benefits and genetic photosensitivity disorders

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits to Americans who can show that they are disabled, unable to work on account of that disability, and meet other federal requirements. In an attempt to help individuals assess whether they may qualify for SSD benefits, the SSA has created a list of qualifying illnesses and injuries, as well as how a disabled individual can show that he or she qualifies under each illness and injury.
