How does the SSA determine what qualifies as a blood disease?

A Tennessean who has a blood disease may look physically well, but most likely is experiencing the effects of his or her condition in a way that may not be readily visible. The condition may not be obvious to many people, but a person with a blood disease may be in need of Social Security disability insurance benefits. If so, he or she may wonder how the Social Security Administration will evaluate his or her condition and what evidence he or she needs to provide to obtain benefits.

What are my options for appeal following a denied SSI claim?

Tennessee residents who apply for Social Security disability insurance or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may be aware that there is a chance that their initial application for benefits will be denied. Despite the significant need that many people have for SSI benefits, all too often the Social Security Administration denies claims.

Social Security disability benefits myth versus fact - Part II

One of the many challenges Tennesseans face when applying for Social Security disability benefits is knowing how to decipher truth from fiction in what can be a long process with a lot of information. As this blog reported in a previous post, there are certain myths and important facts of which a Tennessean should be aware, and this post will address additional myths and facts to help clear the air around Social Security disability benefits.
