Veteran's disability rates increase in 2019

Many people in Indiana served the nation in one of the branches of the armed forces. Unfortunately, many of these people were hurt or developed illnesses during their service. Some of these injuries or illnesses were evident immediately but others took time to manifest. People in these situations may qualify for special disability benefits due to their veteran status.

What happens to your benefits during the claims process?

If you are receiving social security benefits in Indiana, you will have had to have gone through a thorough process to begin receiving those benefits in the first place. If administrators recognize that you may not need to be receiving benefits anymore or there is a discrepancy in your case, they may issue you a letter notifying you of their decision to rescind your benefits. 

Studying the SSA classification of anxiety

Social Security Disability benefits are meant to allow those who suffer from some sort of debilitating condition to be able to still meet their basic financial expenses. Yet there may be some in Marion who believe that many of those receiving such benefits are abusing this privilege. They may see the fact that the Social Security Administration reports that as of 2017, nearly 8.7 million Americans were receiving SSD benefits supports their concerns, particularly knowing that one can qualify for assistance based on conditions as such as anxiety. Many may think that anxiety is something that everyone deals with, therefore disqualifying it as a condition that can be disabling.
