How will a disability onset date affect my benefits claim?

Applying for SSD benefits involves a detailed application and a lot of specific information about a person's medical condition and work history. The Social Security Administration uses the information they obtain from an applicant to determine a disability onset date, which is the date a person became unable to work due to his or her disabling medical condition. The disability onset date is an important date for a recipient of SSDI benefits because it can affect a person's SSDI or SSI eligibility.

SSDI benefits award may be preceded by long wait times

Social Security disability benefits provide financial support for many Tennessee residents. Unfortunately, however, they may not always be available immediately when a person needs them. The process for applying for Social Security disability can be time consuming, and the wait long.

Attorneys help Tennessee clients seek SSI-related benefits

Identifying the need for SSI benefits is often easy for a Tennessee resident. However, actually obtaining the benefits may be a different story. Therefore, it can be invaluable to have the help of an experienced attorney to guide a family as they seek to obtain SSI benefits.

Cancer patients may pursue SSD benefits

Having cancer is difficult enough. From potentially challenging courses of chemotherapy or radiation treatment, to an uncertain diagnosis, every day may present new difficulties. Those with cancer may find they need help that they did not need before. One resource that may provide some relief to patients is the possible award of Social Security Disability Insurance benefits to Tennessee patients suffering from cancer.

How is a spine injury diagnosed?

A person in Tennessee who has suffered damage to his or her spine or neck often needs to be evaluated by a medical professional with the utmost caution and care. It is important that proper treatment is promptly obtained, so that the patient does not suffer additional and unnecessary damage or other physical impairments.
