Helping Iowans Who Are Injured And Disabled Obtain The Benefit They Deserve

August 2018 Archives

Breast cancer and Social Security disability benefits

Cancer is one of those words that we all hate to hear. Yet, it's prevalent enough that this disease has affected just about everyone in Iowa in one way or another, either directly or indirectly. For those afflicted with some variation of this disease, life can take a dramatic turn, and the things that were once easy and enjoyable suddenly become impossible. This includes the ability to work. Those cancer sufferers who are unable to work may not only feel like they've lost their sense of purpose, but also their income. As a result, it can become difficult for them to make ends meet and pay for the medical treatment they need.

How children qualify for Supplemental Security Income

Many of the discussions that focus on the Social Security disability system revolve around adults who have been rendered unable to work by a serious illness or injury. While these adults in Iowa and across the U.S. certainly make up the vast majority of disability claimants, they are not, by any means, the only individuals who may qualify for disability benefits.

What benefits can you pursue through workers' compensation?

If you are injured in a workplace accident, then you'll likely face some financial hardship. Although you may have some paid time off built up, it may not be enough to cover the amount of time you'll be away from work. This means that you might end up losing wages during a time when you have to absorb unexpected medical expenses. This hardship can be difficult to overcome, particularly if you don't have significant savings.
