I'm healthy now, but could I ever need SSD benefits?

People who are able-bodied and free of mental illness may not think that they will ever become disabled. It is natural to assume that such a life-changing event could possibly happen to you, but the fact is that disability is quite common. Among 20-year-olds, more than 25 percent will become disabled before they turn 67, according to the Social Security Administration.

SSD benefits restored after outside income mix-up

It took the intervention of a U.S. senator, but a woman who lost her much-needed Social Security disability benefits last year expects to have those benefits restored. This should allow her to keep her house and help her spend her final months as comfortably as possible.

Missouri man pleads guilty to SSD fraud

The purpose of the Social Security disability program is to help provide financial security for people who must stop working due to a physical or mental condition. People in this position might be unable to pay for basic necessities once they lose their income.

Many SSD applications take years to resolve

Just about any legal proceeding that must go through a courthouse is going to take some time. Courts typically have a long list of people seeking to have their claims handled, and all of them are entitled to their day in court. Having said that, too many people in Missouri and around the U.S. are having to wait for years, simply to find out if they will receive Social Security disability benefits.
