Even young workers may end up needing SSD benefits

When young adults enter the workforce, they anticipate building a successful career until it is time to retire. However, for some people in Missouri, this dream is cut short when they suffer an injury or illness so severe that it prevents them from working, perhaps forever. When this happens, a person might want to explore the possibility of seeking Social Security Disability benefits.

Fewer people applied for SSD benefits in 2017

People in Missouri who suffer from a disability may find that being able to hold down a job is not possible. When the only jobs available to them are manual labor jobs, it is understandable why a person with a disability would be unable to work. However, when economic times are better and more low-skilled jobs are available that do not require manual labor, more people with disabilities are able to work, as recent numbers show.

Cancer sufferers may qualify for Compassionate Allowance

National Cancer Survivors Day took place earlier in June, and it serves as a good reminder that many people all across the nation are battling this disease and winning. Still, such battles come at a cost, both physically and financially. Cancer itself is a serious disease, and even treating cancer can make a person feel very ill for an extended period of time. This can lead to financial difficulties, especially when the medical bills pile up and a person cannot work for a year or more or if the illness is projected to be fatal.

Disability benefits based on a diagnosis of depression

Depression is a serious mental illness that may rob a person of their happiness, energy and capacity to function. It can manifest in physical symptoms and may cause a Missouri resident to endure significant and life-altering suffering. Because depression can affect a person on so many different levels, the Social Security Administration recognizes it as a disability in certain situations.
