The autism spectrum and a person's ability to work

North Carolina residents may know that, in some situations, a person's brain may function in a non-standard way. When a person struggles to communicate, regulate their emotions or thrive in standard living situations, they may be diagnosed with a condition that is known as "autism spectrum disorder."

What are the long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury?

Readers of this Charlotte disability benefits blog are asked to remember that this post does not provide any legal or medical advice. The comments made herein are informational only. Readers who have further questions about traumatic brain injuries, disability benefits, and other topics are asked to pursue them with their medical care providers and disability benefits attorneys.

What's next if your claim came back denied?

When you learn that your claim for disability benefits came back denied, it can be devastating. You may not be able to work, and you need those benefits to help ends meet and allow you to support yourself. Even with a valid disabling condition, securing benefits can be a frustratingly difficult process.

How do earnings factor in when seeking SSI benefits?

North Carolina residents who meet the basic requirements for Supplemental Security Income of being disabled, blind or 65 and older must also understand there are other factors that will be critical to a determination that the person is entitled to SSI benefits. If they do not meet all the criteria, they will face denied SSI claims and may consider appealing the case to try to get the decision overturned. Before thinking about such a problematic scenario, it is important to know how the Social Security Administration considers earnings when deciding on an SSI claim.

Disability benefits can be tough to secure

There are certain things in life that Charlotte residents can prepare for. Retirement, expanding their families and even changing jobs are events that some people may be able to see in the future and can make plans to achieve. Other events, unfortunately, are emergencies or are unexpected and cannot be foreseen by those who are affected by them.

Respiratory illnesses and Social Security disability benefits

Breathing is something that North Carolina residents may take for granted. For most people, their bodies take control of respiration and handle the important task of feeding their bodies with oxygen while they are awake and while they are asleep. For others, though, respiratory illnesses deprive them of the ability to forget about their breathing and the important purpose that it serves.
