Getting Your Finances Ready for a SSD Case
Financial security is what everybody wants in life; that and emotional and spiritual security. However, without the sense of being financially secure for the years to come, this has disastrous effects on a person’s general well being.
Now American working class citizens have come to believe that the Social Security is an institution to protect them when the need finally arises. What do we need then is to rest a weary body and soul from the long years of hard work. Or the need to settle down again as burdening illnesses and frustrating restrictions troubled your body. The vision held for everybody – the Social Security disability SSD benefits program and supplemental security insurance SSI is something for them all to built on dreams of a secured, life after their years of hard work.
Alas, when they first applied for the Social Security Disability Benefits, very few claimants were ever told how long the process of eventually securing their claims might take. .
A sad and commonplace scenario is what occurs to these persons, employed for many years, perhaps at just one job, suddenly find that their medical condition has worsened and they can no longer do their job, or any other job. Either by their initiative or advice taken from others, they contact the social security office and file a claim for benefits. However, instead of finally being able to reap the fruits of the many years of their labors, they realize that they have to wait.
Two months in the process, they check the status of their claim and are told that “evaluation will take 90 to 120 days”. Later on, after several months, they get a letter, unfortunately, denying their claims. They file an appeal and another long wait commence, only to receive another denial letter after several months upon their appeal. They would then be informed that another appeal may be processed which involves a hearing before an administrative law judge.
And of course another long wait for a hearing and even after a hearing has been held, it may take yet another innumerable weeks or even moths before a decision is made by a judge. And if ever the disability benefits are ever received at all, it had taken them 2 ½ years from the day their claiming process began. As 21/2 years had passed they may never realized that during all that time all their savings are exhausted, bills and loans are still waiting to be paid, valuables are lost in order to pay for other debts. They have been reduced to drastic living conditions and still, they still haven’t taken hold of their benefits.
Learning a lesson from the situations, it is extremely important to know how long the application and appeal process of the SSD system would really take before the eventuality of being awarded by the benefits.
By having advanced knowledge of how long a social security SSI/disability application might take, claimants could plan their assets and finances and avoid instantaneous financial downfall.
Also, practical rules may apply in planning financial aspects while still in the process of applying and/or appealing for your disability claims. On top of everything else, it would be wise not to take on additional debts or obligations. Get the cooperation of your family and list down other ways which would greatly minimize financial burdens and obligations. With regards to the bills and payments that have earlier compromised you, find out a way of restructuring them so that your budget would not suffer greatly as each day passed, still without the approval of your benefits. Who knows, sacrificing but a little more is what it probably takes.
In an age of terrorism, guerilla and total warfare the medieval doctrine of Just War needs to be re-defined. Moreover, issues of legitimacy, efficacy and morality should not be confused. Legitimacy is conferred by institutions. Not all morally justified wars are, therefore, automatically legitimate. Frequently the efficient execution of a battle plan involves immoral or even illegal acts.
Travel Insurance Might Be Just What You Need!
Travel insurance is something that many people haven’t considered. Sure, it’s possible that you may never have to access your travel insurance, but just having it can really give you peace of mind. As it so often happens, there are many different circumstances or situations that could cause you to cancel your trip, interrupt your plans and possibly return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling. To demonstrate the importance of purchasing travel insurance, and emergency travel services, here are a few common examples of what might go wrong:
Inexpensive Life Insurance To Protect What You’ve Earned
Adequate life insurance to cover your income producing ability is a product that is really needed today to give peace of mind. Life insurance was originally conceived to protect a mans family when his death left them without income. Over time is has developed into a variety of policy plans. In a "whole life" policy, fixed premiums are paid throughout the insureds lifetime; this accumulated amount, augmented by compound interest, is paid to a beneficiary in a lump sum upon the insured’s death; the benefit is paid even if the insured had terminated the policy. Under "universal life," the insured can vary the amount and timing of the premiums; the funds compound to create the death benefit.
How the Jury System Should be Reformed
Our current jury system is ailing. It is beginning to fail us. O.J. Simpson being found not guilty is just one example of that problem. People with loads of evidence against them are found not guilty, while others with far less evidence against them are found guilty. Mass murderers are often sentenced to life in prison, while many others who commit just one murder are sentenced to death. People tried separately for the same crime often get much different verdicts and/or much different sentences. I know the Constitution guarantees the accused a right to a jury of his or her peers, but times have changes over the last 200-plus years and we need to make adjustments accordingly. There are two changes I would suggest we make as soon as possible.
Government Overregulation of Broadcast Content Could Backfire
Rush is right! The governments stepped up bid to regulate broadcast television content is indeed frightening. Limbaugh made his comments during one of his regular radio broadcasts last year.

The legal fiction of common law marriage
During a radio-talk show appearance, a caller told me about his unfortunate brush with the legal fiction of common-law marriage.

He called the police, who mistakenly informed him that the woman was his common-law wife and so they couldn’t help him.
