So many Americans have suffered serious and debilitating injuries -- like traumatic brain injury -- that have left them permanently disabled and unable to work, but they were denied Social Security benefits when they first apply for them. This is a scary and difficult situation to be in, for sure, but disabled persons should not despair and they should not take "no" for an answer.
A lot of people do not know or do not believe that they can qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Generally speaking, though, federal law says that anyone who has an impairment that could result in death and/or prevent him or her from earning at least $1,000 per month for a year or more, might be eligible to receive government disability benefits. If you or your loved one fits this description, Midwest Disability, PA, may be able to help.
