Preparing well for your Social Security disability hearing

When you are unable to work due to a disabling medical condition, physical injury or type of mental illness, it can lead to grave financial circumstances. It's important for your North Carolina family to secure benefits through the Social Security Administration, but the disability claims process is long and arduous. Before you start, you may want to take the time to learn more about what to expect, including how you can prepare for your hearing.

Crohn's disease is an inflammation of the lower bowel. It can cause severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition. In its most severe form, Crohn's disease can interfere with a person's ability to work. Thus, persons with a serious form of Crohn's disease can qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

How will be SSD claim be assessed if I have a blood disease?

When a North Carolina resident is diagnosed with a serious and debilitating illness, it will inevitably impact multiple areas of their life. Getting medical treatment to address the issue, working and functioning on a day-to-day basis can not only be difficult, but it can inhibit the healing process and negatively impact the chance at recovery. For those who meet the federal requirements, Social Security disability benefits can be a critical part of getting well. This is true with many issues, but it is especially so with a blood disease. Understanding what blood diseases (also referred to a hematological disorders) are evaluated for SSD benefits and what evidence is needed is fundamental to a claim.
