Residual functional capacity, my work abilities, and SSD benefits

Residual functional capacity (RFC) is a key factor when North Carolina residents are seeking Social Security disability benefits. Being disabled and saying that the issues that are part of the disability is frequently insufficient to automatically get approved for disability benefits. The inability to work is critical, and if an applicant shows an inability to work it will go a long way toward being approved. Understanding how physical abilities, mental abilities, and other abilities that are hindered by an impairment is part of the RFC assessment. Having legal advice for this and other aspects of a claim for SSD benefits is essential.

Who pays if I need to travel for a test to get SSI benefits?

When people in North Carolina are 65 and older and are confronted with disability or blindness and have limited income and resources, Supplemental Security Income is a viable option to obtain the compensation needed to make ends meet and get the medical treatment required to treat one's condition. SSI is a program that is specifically designed for those who fall into these categories. Getting approved for benefits can be a relief. However, the process isn't always easy, and many claims are denied. In an attempt to make the fairest decision possible, the Social Security Administration may need a significant amount of information.

What is the Social Security Disability blue book?

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance is a complicated and painfully slow process. If this is news to you, you should not let this information prevent you from seeking the benefits you need if you have a disability. In fact, there may be factors in your situation that would make the process go a little faster.

What can you do if your application for SSI benefits is denied?

Having a disability can make life challenging, especially financially. Sometimes simply affording the basics, such as food, shelter and clothing becomes impossible without assistance. Fortunately, individuals in Charlotte may apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a government program that provides financial benefits to qualifying applicants. It is the financial safety many need to get by day-to-day.

One-third of cancer survivors experience chronic pain, study says

Cancer survivors often go through a litany of extensive treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. And while these measures may save a person's life, that's not to say there are not long-term effects. Those in Charlotte who have survived cancer or have a loved one who has done so may already know that one possible long-term effect of cancer treatment is chronic pain.
