Seeking SSD benefits for an anxiety disorder

For people in South Carolina dealing with anxiety disorders or other psychological problems, the effects of their illness can be significant. In some cases, their anxiety is so severe that they are unable to work. These conditions involve persistent tension, unease or apprehension; more than simple worry or nervousness, disabling anxiety can lead to pervasive terror provoked by normal events. There are several different types of anxiety disorders, and the effectiveness of treatment can vary significantly from case to case.

Past medical records and Social Security disability benefits

Many West Virginia residents who are no longer able to work due to a disability file for Social Security benefits. These applicants may wonder how far back the Social Security Administration goes when looking at medical records for proof of a disability.

Securing disability benefits for severe cases of diabetes

Social Security disability benefits exist for the support and benefit of individuals who cannot work and earn a sufficient income due to a medical condition or severe injury. This is also true for some people who have diabetes. While many in West Virginia with this sickness are able to live full lives and work full-time, others may find they are not able to do so. In certain circumstances, diabetes could be a legitimate reason to seek disability benefits.

How to react after receiving a denial letter

West Virginia residents who file for disability benefits should expect that their applications will be denied at the initial level. Applications will also likely get denied at the reconsideration level. However, it is important to know that a denial typically has little to do with the strength of a person's case. It is also important to understand that an applicant has 60 days from the date of a denial to appeal it.
