What is a trial work period?

Previous posts here have discussed a wide variety of topics related to disability benefits and the process of securing them from the Social Security Administration. A disabling illness or injury can be a major hurdle for Oklahoma residents to overcome in their efforts to live independently and make their own way. For some, finding work despite their disabilities may be a goal that they wish to achieve.

What happens if it is possible for a disability to get better?

Previous posts here have discussed how individual disability claims may be reviewed after they have been approved. Reviews are done to ensure that individuals are getting the support that they need, but also to ensure that individuals who are capable of working are seeking other means of financial support besides their SSDI payments. When a person is approved for disability benefits their ailment may be identified as one that will possibly improve, and that identification may influence when the person's case review is performed.

Not all disabilities are readily apparent

Some illnesses and injuries ravage the bodies of their victims and leave them with obvious, visible scars. Oklahoma residents who have lived through surgeries and accidents, cancers and other physical illnesses, may show the signs of their traumas on their bodies. Their suffering may be inferred by those who do not know them, because of the signs they outwardly carry.

Factors considered during disability determination

Living with a disability can be a challenge for Oklahoma residents, particularly if they are unable to work because of their condition. Because individuals who suffer from disabling illnesses, injuries and impairments may not be able to support themselves by working, the Social Security Administration offers disability benefits to those who qualify. However, due to the many factors that are considered during a disability determination, disabled individuals may find that their claim for disability benefits has been rejected.
