You need to have disability evidence ready days before a hearing

One of the most difficult aspects of pursuing a successful disability claim with the Social Security Administration is the requirement that you submit adequate medical evidence to prove that your illness or injury prohibits you from gainful employment or fulfilling the basic duties of self-care on a daily basis.

Understanding the definition of "disability"

The federal government administers a program that provides financial benefits to persons who are deemed to be permanently and totally disabled. A person is eligible for benefits if he or she has earned sufficient work credits and is totally and permanently disabled. "Disability" can seem to be a vague term, but the regulations that govern the administration of Social Security Disability benefits have added a sufficient degree of specificity. In order to understand the complete meaning of disability, a section by section review of the relevant regulations is necessary.

Understanding the benefits of COBRA

One of the most beneficial federal statutes has an especially ominous nickname: COBRA. The name stands for Congressional Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. The statute was passed in 1985 to assist employees whose group health insurance was discontinued, either because the employee's job was terminated or because the employer decided to discontinue the coverage.
