Our attorneys help those with illnesses seek SSDI benefits

When a Tennessean's health is failing, he or she is likely most concerned with feeling better. Undoubtedly, it will be a priority to seek expert medical advice, to undergo thorough testing, and to receive proper and effective treatment. Unfortunately, however, medical care can be expensive.

Mom denied Social Security disability benefits despite amputation

Social Security disability benefits are available to individuals who have been injured or suffered a medical condition that renders them unable to work. The Social Security Administration reviews each application for benefits and makes a determination regarding whether an applicant qualifies for SSD benefits. Unfortunately for one mother of five who is disabled, the SSA determined that she did not meet the Agency's requirements to receive benefits.

Blood diseases may qualify one for SSD benefits

Hematological disorders affect the health of a person's blood. As we all rely on our blood for survival, a disease that attacks a person's blood can have severe consequences for a Tennessean. The good news is that a person suffering from a blood disease may qualify for Social Security disability benefits for illness due to their condition.

What is Section 301 and how is it related to SSI benefits?

For those in Tennessee who are receiving Supplemental Security Income before turning 18, it must first be understood that the benefits can stop when they turn 18. This can be worrisome for many. The Social Security Administration will determine whether or not the underlying condition is sufficient under the adult rules to continue benefits, but it is possible that it will not. However, there is a way for the Social Security disability payments under SSI to continue through vocational rehabilitation (VR) or a similar-type program. This is known as Section 301.
