Mental Illness Disability For information, resources and related links go The National Council On Disability (NCD) If you already have a policy you can look at the terms and conditions section of the policy and see what causes of injury or illness are covered by the policy. Also, check the exc…lusions section to see if bipolar disorder is excluded from coverage. Review the options for disability coverage and if the information for the specific plan you want does not indicate whether there is coverage for bipolar disorder, then ask the insurance company and get their response in writing. Some insurance companies do not provide disability coverage for pre-existing conditions. do you have other illness seeking medical help for/is it DLA ? You are asking about depending on the severity of your health illness you may well be entitled to this. Approach your G.P. Take it from there More input from FAQ Farmers: . The Social Security website contains all the information necessary (including d application forms) to determine if a person is eligible for SSD and/or SSI. Social Security Online, http:/www.ssa.gov . The question depends on all kinds of different unknowns. Is the policy a Group or Individual Policy, What company is the contract with, are there any exclusions or riders in the policy discussing the matter, what state was the contract written? In the personal disability market many companies will provide a benefit for mental health nervousness disorders for a period of typically 2-5 years. To provide a direct response, the answer is yes. There are many mental illnesses that can prevent a person from being capable of working and therefore eligible for disability benefits. To determine whether a mental illness would qualify you for SSD benefits is almost impossible. It is said that in order to qualify for SSD benefits, there needs to be a strong indication that your inability to work will be ongoing for many years. As stated in the previous response, you can visit the SS website to learn more. Regarding group or individual disability insurance policies, yes you are able to receive benefits for mental illnesses. With group coverage and many of the individual policies available in today's market place, you will see that these benefits are limited to a 24-month, lifetime benefit period. There are few companies that still offer benefits on mental illness claims for the contract's full benefit period. Additionally, mental illness can be excluded from an individual contract if it is/was an already existing condition. If you are asking this because you have an existing policy, check your contract to see if an exclusion was added. If you are asking this because you are in the market for a policy, you should know that pre-existing conditions will warrant any insurance company to exclude these benefits from your coverage.

You present a good question. If you have a policy in place you need to check with your agent and your insurer to confirm in writing if the policy covers the Parkinson's. When you get your quotes request a reply from the insurer regarding coverage for Parkinson's. Sometimes pre-existing conditions ma…y not be covered for long term disability. It's best to get it in writing from the insurer prior to selecting your policy. It would really depend on the mental health nervous disorder wording in your contract and if Parkinson falls under this classification of disability??. Most companies only pay a 2-5 year benefit for these types of disorders with one paying for the entire benefit. It is doubtful a company would write a policy if this was a preexisting condition so I am assuming the contract was written before the onset of this disease.

i heard that you can receive disability if you are an addict. Is this true and how?
The disability has to be 'approved' by a panel of people, one or several of which could be medical doctors. Just because you or your employer have a 'plan' that includes disability payments doesn't mean that payments are automatically given for an injury. There is most likely a time limit imposed fo…r such payments. ( Full Answer )
In the elementary school setting a teacher turns in a form to the school called a student study team form. This form asks questions of the teacher why he/she thinks this child needs help and the teacher collects samples of work from the student as well as giving info from the child's records. The te…am meets. It is made up of an administrator, special ed teacher, teacher, and psychologist. If the team decides that there is a problem it goes to the next step. The parent is contacted asking for a meeting to explain that there could be a problem and asking for testing permission. If the parent gives their permission, then, testing and observation of the child will start. There is a time limit on this. The next step is a meeting with the parent on the results and an IEP is written. The IEP is an Individual lesson plan for the child to fit the needs of the child. It may include behavioral things, special accommodations for the child, and what the child should or needs to learn. The parent, the teacher, special ed teacher, psychologist, and administrator all sign the form. The parent is given a copy of their rights as a parent in this process. The IEP is in effect for the school year and will be reviewed to see if the needs of the child has been met and if the child still needs services. Through this entire process the parent can also choose to have an advocate with them to explain the process and make sure that the parent's rights are being met. ( Full Answer )
That depends upon the elimination period in your policy. The elimination period is the amount of time you need to be disabled before you are eligible for benefits. Check your policy for details.

I do not believe so, unless you're thinking of trying to use your inability to get, or hold, a job on your criminal record. That reasoning won't work.
You may receive Medicaid and Medicare disability at the same time if you meet eligibility factors, principally citizenship and limited income/assets.
If the Nystagmus condition this person has is severe enough, then yes they can qualify for Disability benefits. However it is not the simple fact of having Nystagmus that will enable them to receive Disability benefits. Disability insurance companies and Social Security disability do not look at th…e specific condition a claimant has, but more so the effect this condition has on the person's ability to work. Disability insurance will only pay benefits when a person is prevented from working due to an illness or injury. Therefore, if the Nystagmus prevents a person from being able to work, then depending on the Disability insurance policy they have, there is a good chance they can qualify for benefits. If the Nystagmus causes does not prevent the person from being able to work, then they will not be eligible for benefits. ( Full Answer )
OSteo arthritis can be a genuinely debilatating disease. the disability benefits that you can gain as a result of this would depend on where you live.
Private Insurance Yes, a person covered by a company or individual Disability policy can qualify for disability benefits if disabled due to alcoholism.

In most circumstances, one of the requirements in qualifying for Disability benefits is that you must be under the care of a physician. Therefore, you must be diagnosed with alcoholism by members of the medical profession, in order for it to be legitimate. Social Security Disability (SSDI) Drug addiction or alcoholism, alone, are not a qualifying conditions for disability according to SSA guidelines. ( Full Answer )

You will use your medicare to pay for the medical costs of pregnancy. The question is, " can you physically and emotionally care for the baby ?"
The simple answer is Yes. A person can certainly qualify to receive Long Term Disability benefits because of having cancer. However, it is not the fact that he/she has cancer that qualifies him/her for benefits. In order to qualify for Long Term Disability benefits, a person must satisfy the requ…irements set forth by their Group or individual policy - which can be found by reviewing the definition of total disability along with the guidelines for Residual disability. Without getting too far into detail, the requirement to receive Disability benefits from a group or individually owned policy will be worded something like: To be considered totally disabled you must be unable to perform the material and substantial duties of your occupation (or "any" occupation, depending on your contract). Thus explaining that it is not necessarily Cancer that enables a person to receive Long Term Disability benefits, but rather the inability to perform his/her occupational duties that can be caused by cancer. In order to qualify for Residual benefits (benefits for partial disability), the debilitating injury or illness must cause a loss of income greater than 15-25%, depending on the policy.

This would depend on the type of Injury payout the above question is about you could have some taxable amount and some nontaxable amounts involved in the payout amount. The items below would be added to all of your gross worldwide income and taxed as ordinary income at your marginal tax rate. . In…terest on any award . Compensation for lost wages or lost profits in most cases . Punitive damages. Don't include in your income compensatory damages for personal physical injury or physical sickness (whether received in a lump sum or installments). Damages for emotional distress are taxable unless they are due to a physical injury or sickness. Amounts you receive as workers' compensation for an occupational sickness or injury are fully exempt from tax if they are paid under a workers' compensation act or a statute in the nature of a workers' compensation act. The exemption also applies to your survivors. The exemption, however, does not apply to retirement plan benefits you receive based on your age, length of service, or prior contributions to the plan, even if you retired because of an occupational sickness or injury. If part of your workers' compensation reduces your social security or equivalent railroad retirement benefits received, that part is considered social security (or equivalent railroad retirement) benefits and may be taxable.

If you are totally disable can courts use VA disability and long shore workers comp to determine child support when SS-DI child support is already paid by noncustodial parent?
The Supreme Court has ruled against the use of VA Disability benefits, however most states are ignoring it. The SSD Child Benefit check general covers for anything that could be possibly paid when collecting just SSD, however you also have union benefits on top of this. That amount should be applica…ble in setting an order. The fact of you have a combination of three source incomes leaves it all open to interpretation by the court. In 21 years of working with fathers, I've not seen a case of this type, so you will need an opinion from a good attorney who specializes in child support matters. See the links below on how to hire one. ( Full Answer )
Privacy considerations would likely preclude determining this information, regardless of whether the disability payments were coming from Social Security, from a private insurer, or from the person's prior employer. Naturally, you could always ask the person whom you suspect is a recipient.
If you live in the United States, yes. One of the disability insurance programs run by the Social Security Administration (SSA) is the Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Under this program which is funded by federal taxes, any person who is aged or disabled with little to no income may be eligible …to receive such SSI benefits. To qualify, the individual must have a medically determinable physical or mental impairment that would result to inability to do any substantial gainful activity or which can result to death or last for 12 months. Children who are disabled may also receive SSI benefits so long as they have severe functional limitations which shall last for not less than 12 months or end in death. . ( Full Answer )
Yes. Marriage, by itself, has no impact on whether you can receive disability benefits. If the Social Security Administration determines you are disabled and you (or your spouse) have accumulated an adequate number of work credits, you can receive benefit payments under SSDI (Social Security Disab…ility Insurance) regardless of your marital status, assets or income. If you are found disabled, but you (or your spouse) do not have an adequate number of work credits, you may qualify for SSI (Supplemental Security Income), but only if your income and assets fall below certain thresholds. Some recipients may qualify for both SSDI and SSI, but you are less likely to receive SSI payments if your spouse is working. For more information, see Related Links and Sources, below.

The IRS doesn't pay disability benefits; they collect taxes. You may or may not be able to collect disability benefits from a private insurance policy and the Social Security Administration at the same time, but if you can, it's likely the income from one would be reduced to offset some or all of th…e income from the other. Check your insurance policy or consult with an insurance agent for more information. ( Full Answer )
The question has many variables. Among them are the source of the disability benefits and the nature of the disability that is claimed. For example, if the benefits are to be provided by a private disability policy, the insurer will have to ensure that the cause and nature of the disability comport…s with the policy terms. That is, not all disabilities will fit within the parameters of the policy definitions, nor will all causes. Therefore, the insurer will need to obtain all material medical records, earnings records to document the financial side of the claim, it may conduct surveillance of the claimant, and other activities pertinent to the processing of the claim. Normally, a reputable insurer will stay in regular touch with the claimant, but if it does not, the claimant should not hesitate to keep open the lines of communication on a reasonably timely basis.

A child who becomes disabled before age 22 can qualify for Social Security benefits under a parent's earnings record. Social Security continues to pay benefits until age 18 if he or she continues meeting childhood disability guidelines, and indefinitely as an adult-child as long as (s)he meets adult… disability guidelines. Once an adult-child is capable of working, (s)he may receive benefits under his/her own earnings record or continue under the parent's record, whichever benefit is higher. Children who receive benefits as dependents of a disabled parent are paid through the month prior to the month the child turns 18 or, if the child is still in high school or elementary school at that age, may continue receiving benefits beyond age 18 until the end of the school term or two months after his or her 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. SSA extensions are not automatic; the child's representative payee has to contact the Administration to request it. ( Full Answer )
Filing a ssa form 25 to claim deceased domestic partner's ss retirement benefits if already receiving disability benefit income monthly possible?

Well, not exactly. Like any other human, those affected by Aspergers can work, it is just more difficult.

Yes, it is very common for disability insurance plans to include a clause for social security disability, meaning the insurance company will pay a portion of the monthly benefit, expecting that you would apply for social security benefits to pay for the "Supplemental Social Security benefits". In th…e event you get declined by Social Security, then the insurance company would cover the additional supplemental benefits.
