What to do when a disability application has been denied

Social Security disability benefits are important benefits for many disabled individuals and their families which is why it is important for disabled individuals to know what to do when their claim for disability benefits has been denied. Denied claims for Social Security disability (SSD) benefits are not necessarily the end of the process.

Understanding eligibility for Social Security disability benefits

Many disabled individuals and their families rely on disability benefits, which is why it is important to understand how to qualify for Social Security disability (SSD) benefits. To be eligible for Social Security disability benefits, the disabled individual must suffer from a physical or mental disability -- or a combination of a physical or mental disability. In addition, the physical or mental disability must be expected to last for 12 months or longer, or result in death.

Seeking SSDI benefits for loved one can be role of caretaker

With loved ones like parents and grandparents, the cycle of life can turn the roles from caretakers to the cared-for. It is only natural that children look after aging parents and grandparents and look out for their best interests. In some Tennessee families, children are the primary caretakers for their aging elders. One aspect of care taking can be handling their loved one's finances.

Type of military discharge and benefits received for veterans

Military veterans deserve the best. The sacrifices that veterans may make include their time, separation from their family and other personal sacrifices. Some even make the ultimate sacrifice and pay with their life in service to their country. For those who escape with their life, discharge status can affect the benefits they receive after their time in the service has ended.
