Sometimes, the Social Security Disability Administration will try to cut your benefits under a "Continuing Disability Review," or "CDR." If this happens, all is far from lost. You can elect to fight a decision to cut your benefits. You can also elect to keep getting benefits while the administration conducts its review-but act fast, because you only have a few days to file for continuing benefits after your notice of termination. You will have to decide whether to collect benefits during the review, because if you lose your appeal, you will owe back all benefits you received during the process of review.
Si está totalmente incapacitado por una condición médica grave - por una cirugía como la fusión espinal o otra cirugía, reemplazo de hombro o rodilla, diabetes o cáncer, o cualquier otra condición incapacitante grave - una de las partes más importantes de su caso es su "EOD," O su "established onset date" - la fecha que elige Seguro Social come el día que empezó su incapacidad.
If you are totally disabled for a serious medical condition--from spinal fusion or other surgery, to shoulder or knee replacement, to diabetes or cancer, or any other serious disabling condition--one of the most significant parts of your case is your EOD, or established onset date.

Every year the Social Security Administration makes changes to Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI) and to the rules that govern how you can get those benefits. For instance, the threshold in 2017 was raised for Substantial Gainful Activity to $1,170.00 per month. In order to collect Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI), you cannot be employed and earning more than the $1,170.00 threshold. The benefit to you as an injured and disabled worker is that you can work and still be eligible for benefits.
Businesses and their paid lobbyists, lawyers, and politicians are waging all-out war against workers' compensation SCHEDULE LOSS (also known as FINAL ADJUSTMENT) permanency awards for working men and women.
An issue frequently arises when a working person injured in a construction or demolition accident, or by a defective scaffold, has both a Workers' Compensation and a Negligence, or Personal Injury case--how should the lawyers handle settlements on each of the cases, and are the lawyers acting together and coordinating their efforts for the benefit of the injured worker whose life has changed forever by his injury and disability?
Compared to many cities, New York is relatively pedestrian friendly, so for thousands of residents, walking is the preferred mode of travel. Following traffic laws such as crossing streets only at crosswalks should be enough to keep people on foot safe. However, distracted, drunk, negligent or reckless drivers pose serious hazards to pedestrians, and being hit by a vehicle, even at low speeds, causes significant potential for injury or death.
