This is the main job-related disability

When you consider job-related disabilities, you may think of things like amputation injuries, head injuries or spinal cord injuries. These all seem so drastic and life-changing, and it's easy to think up stories of these events happening in the workplace. We have all heard of people accidentally closing hydraulic presses on their own hands, for instance, leading to the implementation of a two-button system so that the workers need both hands to be clear before they can use the machine.

Are people with low vision eligible for disability benefits?

When you are unable to work because of a medical condition such as low vision, it can significantly impact your West Virginia family. This is not simply an inconvenience, but it is a very real threat to your financial stability. With vision issues, it's possible that you could lose the ability to earn a gainful income to support yourself and your family. Thankfully, you could be eligible for benefits through the Social Security Administration.

Millions of veterans having hearing loss and tinnitus

Veterans face a lot of challenges from working around loud and sudden noise sources. The most obvious example, of course, is the report from a firearm, but that's certainly not the only issue. They also work around machines, vehicles, jet engines, explosions and much more. Those who see combat may find themselves exposed to extensive noise that they have no way to avoid.

What happens to disability benefits if you get stimulus check?

Virtually everyone has experienced impacts from the Coronavirus, or COVID-19. Like many others in America, you may be staying at home, avoiding crowds and trying your best to be socially distant. You may also be looking forward to hopefully getting support from the government through a stimulus check within the next few weeks.

How common is heart disease?

If you're suffering from heart disease, you know how difficult it can be. It may make it impossible for you to work, leading to an exploration of your Social Security Disability (SSD) options. It may make you consider your diet and other lifestyle changes you can make. It may mean that you're on medication. This is a very serious condition.

Do you have a disability if you have PTSD?

When you are unable to work because of a medical condition, you can't earn an income to support your family, meet your own basic needs and pay for other things you want. This is a pressing need, and you need to find a way to get help as soon as possible. You may attempt to secure financial support by applying for Social Security disability benefits.

A migraine is more than a headache

People sometimes make the mistake of assuming that a migraine is just a headache that perhaps lasts longer than you would expect or does not respond as well to medication and painkillers. While both of those things may be true, it's important to note that it's far more than a headache. Migraines can be so severe that they make it impossible to do anything -- hobbies, work, exercise, etc.
