The problem with pain in SSD claims

One of the most frustrating things a Columbia, Missouri resident can face in life is a serious medical condition that has no apparent cause. Chronic pain is one such medical condition. A person feels it acutely and may not be able to work or even do much more than get out of bed because of it, yet neither "pain" nor the cause thereof is going to show up on any medical or laboratory test.

Social Security disability payments going up slightly in 2018

The Social Security Administration has announced that, effective in 2018, there will be a 2 percent cost-of-living increase, or COLA. This means that Boone County residents who are drawing SSDI or SSI benefits will see a few more dollars, a little over $25, in their pockets each month.

More on long-term disability benefits

A previous post on this blog discussed how not all of our clients, no matter how much they want it and how hard we try on their behalf, are going to qualify for benefits through the Social Security disability programs. As with other areas of the law, sometimes the law, including the federal regulations governing disability, and the facts just aren't going to support one's SSD claim.

Even if Social Security doesn't work out, we can still help

This blog has on many different occasions discussed how our law office works hard to help residents of Columbia and the rest of Boone County who are suffering under all types of disabilities get Social Security benefits. These benefits are often a financial lifeline for our clients, especially since they are unable to work due to the disability.
