Should I worry if my SSD benefits are being reviewed?

Oklahomans who are receiving Social Security disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income might be concerned if they are informed by the Social Security Administration that their benefits will be reviewed. This is a normal part of receiving disability benefits and is not a matter of overt concern when it happens. However, it is important to understand the process, how it works, and what to do.

Living situations and evidence of disability with mental issues

Suffering from a mental condition is something that affects many people in Oklahoma. These issues can be so severe that the person cannot hold a regular job and needs to apply for Social Security disability benefits. When the Social Security Administration decides on the case and assesses whether the person's problems meet the criteria for qualifying mental conditions, numerous factors are considered. One is the applicant's living situation.

Don't make these mistakes with Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability is the insurance the federal government provides if you become disabled. No one wants to think about this possibility, but, unfortunately, the reality is that many people will have to face it as they age.

How to survive when waiting for the outcome of an SSDI case

Social security benefits are available to people who have been seriously injured and will most likely be unable to work ever again. While it helps people stay afloat, a recent article in The Washington Post shows how many disability recipients never lose the desire to get back into the workforce. 

Can a youth set for release from foster care apply early for SSI?

When a disabled youth is in foster care in Oklahoma and is approaching the time when they will be released from the foster care system, they may be concerned about receiving Supplemental Security Income when they reach legal adulthood. To prevent a gap between the release from foster care and the beginning of SSI benefits, it is important to apply for the benefits before the anticipated release from foster care. Understanding the details of how to handle this issue is key.

Understanding past work experience with SSD benefits

When seeking Social Security disability benefits in Oklahoma, the sequential process used by the Social Security Administration is imperative to the case. Step 4 is important as it assesses the past work experience of the applicant and determines if the past work is relevant to the current case. There are certain criteria that must be met to move forward with the case.
