Proposed bill could cut SSD wait times for some

Understanding the Social Security Disability freeze

Residents in Michigan who suffer from disabilities have a lot to confront. Not only do they have to deal with the realities of their medical condition, including the physical pain and emotional turmoil, but they also have to find a way to pay for their medical treatments and recoup their lost wages so they can pay their other, oftentimes every day, expenses. Filing a Social Security Disability claim is certainly one of the best ways to find financial stability in these situations, but does that affect one's ability to acquire future Social Security benefits upon retirement?

This disease is extremely aggressive and fatal. Though treatment is available, there is no known cure.
