SSD Beneficiaries: You Might Need to Act to Get A Stimulus Check

The coronavirus has turned life in Raleigh upside down, just as it has across the nation and around the world. Not long ago, the federal government decided that a stimulus program would help to offset the economic devastation of the virus on the U.S. economy. The stimulus includes $1,200 checks to Americans who earn $75,000 or less, which will include almost all Social Security Disability (SSD) recipients.

IRS: SSD recipients can expect stimulus payments soon

If you look at the streets of Raleigh, you can see that the novel coronavirus has upended nearly everything. Traffic is minimal, businesses are closed and people are mostly shuttered in their homes. The same is true across the U.S. and around the globe.

SSD: a valuable resource after disabling injury or illness

It’s one of the most difficult experiences a person can have: sustaining an injury so severe that it prevents you from working. It can be just as difficult for those who are dealing with a chronic illness, of course, when they are forced by medical conditions to stop going to their job.

New Social Security Disability rule hailed as modernization

According to the American Immigration Council, about 8 percent of North Carolina’s total population is foreign-born. Immigrants make up an even larger share of the state’s labor force. For instance, 44 percent of those working in farming, fishing and forestry industries are immigrants.

Conditions that can qualify you for SSD benefits

More than 60 years ago, the Social Security Disability Insurance program began its mission of helping workers who are disabled by illness or injury. It is difficult to apply for benefits and then obtain approval for SSD benefits because of the narrow definition of “disability” in the Social Security Act that was made into law in 1956.

Closer look at big proposed change to Social Security Disability

Everyone who reads or watches the news knows that the current political landscape is chaotic. While we don’t make political comments in our Raleigh legal blog, there are some issues that merit attention, even though they have political overtones.

Listen to a unique voice about applying for disability benefits

The combination of skills and experience in Julie Whitehead is unique. She’s not only a writer with a disabling condition, but she’s also a former Social Security Administration employee who decided whether or not claims for SSD benefits were valid or not.
