Filing a Social Security Disability appeal

The denial of a Social Security Disability claim can make life extremely difficult for people with disabilities. As stated in one of our earlier posts, Michigan residents can appeal the SSA's decision to deny disability benefits.

Furnishing medical evidence to claim SSD benefits

Social Security Disability benefits are provided to citizens suffering from disability resulting from illness. However, each disability claim must be supported with adequate medical evidence, and it can be important for Michigan residents to understand the medical evidence required to prove disability arising from illness.

How do workers' compensation benefits affect SSD applications?

Workplace injuries bring about many difficulties for injured workers and their families. The worst of those problems are usually financial, as workers lose income while having to pay for some, if not all, of their medical treatment. However, most injured workers in Michigan are covered by the state's workers' compensation program and they can receive cash benefits to help cover the loss of income.

Social Security benefits can help Michigan birth injuries

Although uncommon, Michigan birth injuries can lead to a lifetime of health and medical problems. Like children everywhere in the country, those in Michigan, who sustain such injuries, can have a difficult time coping with the challenges of normal life. For this reason, Social Security Disability Insurance benefits may be available from the federal government to help parents raise a child with needs related to a birth injury.

Potential threats to your Social Security Disability Benefits

Whether you are receiving benefits for retirement, disability or as a survivor of a deceased family member, Social Security is a necessity for millions of Americans. However, there are situations in which you can lose those much-needed benefits. For example, not paying student loans can put your benefits at risk. No matter how long ago you completed college, Social Security agencies can cut off your benefits if you haven't resolved your student loan debts.
