What is anxiety and how can it be disabling?

Anxiety is the common term used to describe a host of mental conditions that may affect how a person lives their life. The symptoms associated with anxiety disorders are wide ranging and can include nervousness, fear, trembling, exhaustion, sleep disturbances, worrying, and having trouble concentrating. When these symptoms become unmanageable, an Oklahoma resident may find that they are unable to focus on the important aspects of their life, including their job.

Liver diseases and disorders are serious medical conditions

The human body is an amazing collection of cells that group together into systems that perform the many necessary functions that must occur in order for it to stay alive. Any Oklahoma resident who has ever suffered a serious illness may be aware of how damaged one's health may become when their body must fight off an infection or disorder. Disorders that affect the liver can be especially damaging and may lead to significant disabilities and harm in those who experience them.

How does a disability freeze help disability benefits recipients?

Individuals who receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration generally must have worked for a certain number of years prior to their disability prior to qualifying for access to such support. During the period in which they work credits are earned toward receiving benefits from the Social Security Administration and may be applied toward their disability benefits when they are unable to work. In most cases, a person's work history is used to assess just how much they may receive in support in the form of disability benefits.

Get help when mental illness prevents employment

Living with mental illness can mean living with a disease that no one else in the world can see. It can mean facing misunderstandings about one's condition by those who are close to them and discrimination from those who do not understand the true nature of struggling with depression, anxiety, or another mental disorder. Oklahoma residents who struggle with mental illness may feel the isolation of fighting a war that few others are aware are raging on inside of them.

What can I do if I think discrimination affected by SSD benefits?

Social Security disability benefits are often an important part of maintaining an individual's financial lifeline. Without them, Oklahoma residents who are unable to work may be left without the resources they need to secure housing, pay their utilities, and put food on their tables. While not every application for disability benefits will fulfill the requirements set forth by the Social Security Administration, individuals should not have their request for disability benefits denied due to discrimination.
