An estimated nine million Americans rely on receiving monthly Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits to be able to support themselves after they suffer disabling injuries that make it impossible for them to work. Qualifying to receive these benefits is not an easy task.
Can you get Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits if you have diabetes?
Diabetes awareness has risen in the U.S. due to the increase in the diagnosis of the disease. According to the CDC, one out of every 10 Americans suffers from diabetes, and a quarter of these people do not even know they have it. Only 5 percent of cases are Type 1, with the rest being Type 2.
When you hear post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) being discussed, you likely hear about abuse victims, soldiers who've gone to war and others who've lived to tell about the particularly adverse set of circumstances they've been exposed to in their lives.
People who are blind or have low vision can qualify for disability benefits in many cases. For these individuals, it might be difficult to find a job that is able to provide the accommodations necessary to allow the person to have gainful employment.
