SSA to try to cut through disability backlog

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is attempting to cut through the backlog of cases by claimants seeking Social Security disability (SSD) benefits, according to an article by The Huffington Post. Currently, some individuals who have applied for SSD benefits are waiting more than 500 days to receive a decision from the government in regards to their application.

Understanding SSD benefits for injuries and its retirement impact

It is important to keep in mind that Social Security disability benefits may be available for injuries resulting in disability. It can also be useful to understand the relationship between Social Security disability benefits and retirement income. SSD benefits may be available when an injured individual is unable to work because of an injury and unable to adjust to another type of work because of those injuries. In addition, the disability must be expected to last longer than a year or result in death.

The basics of Supplemental Security Income

This blog recently discussed health benefits disabled individuals may qualify for through Medicaid which is sometimes closely linked to Supplemental Security Income. Supplemental Security Income benefits are an important resource that disabled individuals should be aware of and familiar with how to apply for. Supplemental Security Income is for adults and children with disabilities who have limited income and resources.
