SSD benefits are often an option for patients diagnosed with PTSD

Over the past several decades, the medical community and the public in general have come to a more full understanding of post-traumatic stress disorder than the nation had in the first years after the war in Vietnam. Many service members and veterans suffer from this condition as a result of combat. Other individuals develop PTSD in response to sexual trauma, work-related accidents, motor vehicle accidents, violence and a host of other tragic occurrences.

Study scrutinizes cancer care wait times for vets

We have written recently about numerous scandals that have originated within the Department of Veterans Affairs.

VA experiencing jumps in appeals and backlog

Over the past several weeks, we have written numerous times about the scandal currently plaguing the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Veterans seeking medical help beyond the VA system post-scandal

Over the past several weeks, we have written extensively about the scandal currently plaguing the healthcare system run by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

However, one potential drawback of the pervasive coverage of this scandal is that many veterans are now seeking medical treatment in healthcare systems beyond those run by the VA.

Will your SSD benefits lapse at some point?

For many Americans, these benefits can mean the difference between being able to afford necessary medical care and going without.

Once recipients are finally approved to receive SSD, the relief they feel is often palpable.

How SSA office closures may affect you

Last month, a congressional report was released which indicates that the Social Security Administration has been compelled to make some challenging restructuring decisions in recent years. Specifically, the SSA has essentially been forced to close a staggering number of field offices because it no longer possesses an adequate operating budget. Unfortunately, these closures may affect far more Americans than one might initially believe.
