Do mental disorders affect children?

Any parent can tell you that children's moods will swing from one end of the spectrum to the other in a matter of moments. A myriad of factors can influence how happy, sad, angry or silly a child is, such as how much sleep they have received, how stimulated they are and what interactions they have had throughout the day. These variations are normal, but for some North Carolina kids, regulating emotions and feelings can be next to impossible.

Your functional capacity and SSDI benefits

If your illness or condition is making it more difficult for you to complete your duties at work, you may be entertaining the idea of applying for Social Security Disability Insurance. You have probably heard of SSDI. For example, you may have a friend or family member who is "on disability," but you may be like many who do not fully understand what it means to qualify for the program's benefits.

Amputations can disable a person in North Carolina

Amputation involves the surgical removal of a part of a person's body. Suffering an injury or illness that requires amputation can be traumatic to an individual who has enjoyed the full and complete use of their limbs and appendages. When amputation becomes a medical necessity, a person may find that they are unable to do the things that they were able to do prior to their procedure.

SSI is an option for qualifying individuals

Life can be beautiful, but it can also be very hard. Depending upon many factors, a North Carolina resident may live their entire life without experience significant hardship, or they may come into the world experiencing significant barriers to their health and happiness. One important element that can make or break the ease of a person's life is their access to a stable income. For men and women who suffer from disabilities, finding and keeping work can be next to impossible.

Get organized before filing for disability benefits

Reaching the point in one's life where it is no longer possible to work due to a disability can be a difficult and frustrating event. However, more than the personal defeat that a North Carolina resident may feel about being unable to do a job, the stress of being unable to provide for one's self and loved ones may cause a person to experience concern and fear over their financial future. Prior to filing for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration there are some organizational steps that individuals can take to support their applications for help.

How will my income affect my SSI payments?

Supplemental Security Income is a form of benefits paid by the Social Security Administration. In order to receive SSI a person must qualify either through blindness, age or disability. If a person makes too much money, then they may not be eligible to receive benefits through SSI.
