What is peripheral neuropathy?

Every system in the human body plays an important role in maintaining stasis of the whole and performing essential functions to keep the individual healthy. From their skin to their bones and everything in between, when a problem develops in a Charlotte resident's body they may experience problems in unexpected places.

Multiple sclerosis and your ability to hold a job

When a North Carolina resident is suffering from a medical condition or disease that prevents him or her from working, that individual could qualify for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration. However, the SSA holds a strict view of disability, and it is not always easy to get benefits. This is the case even for those pursing benefits for serious conditions, such as multiple sclerosis.

Severe burn injuries and disability benefits applications

A significant injury can cause a Charlotte resident to experience life-long pain and suffering. They may not be able to work due to the harm that they have suffered, and as such they may struggle to find ways to make ends meet. As previously discussed on this North Carolina disability benefits blog, injuries can, in some cases, form the bases of disability benefits claims.

What happens to my SSI benefits if I find work?

Being able to work for one's own living and to reduce their need for disability benefits is often a goal of a North Carolina resident who needs Supplemental Security Income to get by. In review, SSI benefits are generally available to individuals who are at least 65 years old or are disabled or blind and who have limited access to earning wages and financial support. If a person who qualifies for SSI receives benefits and then is able to secure gainful employment, they may fear that their benefits will be stopped. Depending upon how much income they earn and the types of benefits they get, they may be able to keep some or all of their SSI.

When an illness-based disability benefits claim is denied

A terrifying diagnosis can stop a Charlotte resident in their tracks. Whether it is a genetic disease or an acquired condition, a disease or illness that may rob a person of their ability to work and to live their life to the fullest may end a person's hopes and dreams for their future. As they seek assistance with learning how to fight their medical battle they may also look into ways of supporting their financial needs.
