You're not guaranteed disability benefits in the long term

If you receive disability payments, then you're probably well aware that disability benefits are not guaranteed forever. One of the most common reasons that benefits can be stopped is when the Social Security Administration (SSA) decides that you no longer have a disabling condition that prevents you from working. You may wonder how they decide if you can.

Hurrying often results in disability claim denials in Tennessee

By the time a 59-year-old man was diagnosed with colon cancer, it was already at stage 4. His doctors soon determined that his cancer had spread to his lungs. They told him that his prognosis was bleak. Although he'd had Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes deducted from his paychecks for the three decades that he'd worked as a stonemason, his application for disability benefits was denied.

What support can reduce my Social Security Disability payments?

Whether you call it a side gig or a second or seasonal job, most Americans have more than one source of income nowadays. What many don't realize, though, is how even the smallest amount of money that they generate from a job or government funds that they receive may adversely impact their ability to continue receiving Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.

Valuable tips for those filing a Social Security Disability claim

If you have suffered a disabling illness or injury, then you probably know how this can affect your life in a negative way. In particular, your financial situation has likely taken a severe turn for the worst. Even Tennessee residents that have scrimped and saved for years soon discover that their savings are not enough to see their family through after a life-changing injury occurs.

Social Security Disability for sufferers of depression

Unfortunately, many Knoxville residents suffer horribly from severe depression. This condition affects a person's relationships and family, but it can also have an effect on a sufferer's ability to maintain employment. Many with severe depression often find it almost impossible to handle daily life tasks, much less hold down a steady job. As depression continues to be recognized as a legitimate, life-altering condition, more and more sufferers want to find out if they qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD).

Preparing for your Social Security Disability interview

When applying for Social Security Disability (SSD), you will have to meet many requirements and undergo a complicated process. While this is necessary to reduce and prevent SSD fraud, it can be intimidating for the applicant. In turn, these feelings of intimidation cause many people to procrastinate about applying for these benefits.

You may automatically qualify for social security disability

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits provide American citizens with compensation when they can no longer work due to a disability. Unfortunately, the SSD program has acquired a bad reputation as being notoriously difficult to navigate, which makes some disabled residents of Tennessee reluctant to apply.

What could cause a social security disability claim denial?

The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program helps individuals who are unable to continue working. The benefits provided by this program ensure people can keep paying their bills, receiving the right medical care and simply surviving during times of need. Each year, millions of people, including Tennessee residents, apply to receive SSDI.
