An overview of Supplemental Security Income benefits

Many of our readers may know that the Social Security Administration runs two different programs to help disabled Americans: Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income. However, some people may not know the difference between these two programs, or why there are two different programs at all.

New Social Security disability legislation proposed

Some of our readers in North Carolina may have seen the news that Senator Marco Rubio -- a former presidential candidate -- recently proposed legislation that may bring a unique change to the Social Security disability program. According to a recent article, the proposed legislation would require the Social Security Administration to make a determination as to whether or not new applicants for SSD benefits would be expected to recover from their disability.

Many of our readers have probably noticed the strong economic reports that have been coming out in the last couple of months. Employers are hiring more than they have in a long time and consumer confidence in the economy is high. However, there will be some in Charlotte who will miss out on what may become an economic boom because they are suffering from a disability that restricts their ability to participate in the workforce.

Multiple sclerosis and Social Security Disability

Social security disability benefits may be available for those who are unable to work. Certain requirements are necessary to get these benefits. There are a number of disabilities and disorders that meet these requirements. One such disorder is multiple sclerosis.
