We have mentioned before on our Minneapolis, Minnesota, Social Security disability law blog that some disabled workers have had to wait months or years for their benefits to be approved. Sometimes applications are rejected by the Social Security Administration due to missing paperwork or other mistakes that only prolong the application and approval processes. Other times, Americans are forced to bring their cases to an administrative law judge when their benefits are wrongfully denied.
Many families in Minnesota are looking forward to spending the upcoming holidays with their loved ones and close friends. The holidays are supposed to be a time for celebration and joy, but for some folks, the holidays can be unbearable.
As we have mentioned before on our Minneapolis Social Security disability blog, workers who suffer from mentally or physically disabling or terminal illnesses, disorders and injuries may be entitled to obtain Social Security disability benefits.
Disability benefits are available to folks in Minnesota and other Americans who suffer from debilitating, life-threatening and chronic illnesses. Typically, many folks associate disabilities with older people. Workers who spend 40 years doing manual labor might become disabled as a result of a repetitive stress injury. And other workers who are nearing retirement might suddenly be diagnosed with cancer or fibromyalgia.
