What is a Social Security disability 'compassionate allowance'?

Applying for Social Security disability benefits can be a complex and time-consuming process, particularly if an individual's initial application is denied and the person must appeal the Social Security Administration's decision. Unfortunately, these delays can cost disabled individuals in Philadelphia more than just money -- they could cost their health or even their lives.

Understanding the disability onset date for SSD benefits

Living with a disability presents a whole host of physical, mental and financial challenges. For some individuals in Pennsylvania, obtaining Social Security disability benefits is the financial lifeline they need to make ends meet if they cannot work. However, the SSD application process can be daunting. It is important to understand all the factors that will be considered when it comes to awarding benefits.

Understanding SSD benefits for mental health conditions

Disabled individuals may be able to receive Social Security disability benefits for medical conditions resulting from injuries but also other types of medical conditions, including mental health medical conditions. The Social Security disability (SSD) process can always be a complex process which is why it is important to understand it and have a high level of familiarity with how to apply for and qualify for benefits.
