Does fibromyalgia qualify you for disability benefits?

It is difficult when a medical condition begins to affect multiple areas of your life, but it is extremely difficult when it begins to impact your ability to work. Some people find that they are unable to hold regular employment or earn a living due to various types of medical conditions, including issues ranging from car accident-related injuries to internal illnesses.

Claiming workers' compensation for mold-related illnesses

Toxic mold can go unnoticed for a long period of time, but it can also cause a great deal of damage to a person's body. It can also be difficult to blame for certain conditions since some people are more sensitive to toxic mold than others. For example, people who suffer from ailments such as asthma or general allergies have a much higher propensity to suffer the effects of toxic mold.

Will my Social Security benefits change when I turn 65?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) determines what can be deemed as the retirement age for different people. The retirement age that is assigned to you depends on the year that you were born: people who are born in 1937 or earlier are considered of a retirement age once they turn 65. However, for those born in 1938 or later, things get a little more complicated. There is a staggered definition of retirement age: being born in 1938 is 65 and 2 months, 1939 is 65 and 4 months, and so on. Therefore, you should be aware of when you will become of retirement age.

The steps to take if you’ve been refused benefits

It is extremely common for a Social Security application to be denied for the first time -- this occurs in over 50 percent of cases. However, if you seek to appeal the decision, you are reasonably likely to be successful. You must make sure that you are well-prepared, however, to make a good case, and know what the acceptance criteria is.

Can I receive stress-related workers' compensation?

Stress and work often go hand in hand. But when the stress levels that are caused at work negatively impact your quality of life, this should not be acceptable. Too much stress can become a health issue, and should be taken seriously if it is affecting your ability to live your life.
