Chronic Illness and SSDI

Chronic illnesses, like pulmonary hypertension, can be devastating to the body and the psyche. This can mean having to endure symptoms such as migraines, shortness of breath, chest pains, muscle soreness, muscle weakness, and other adverse symptoms, in addition to anxiety, severe depression, and feelings of hopelessness.

For some people, pain management and adequate care can be heavily dependent on access to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. SSDI is a critical resource for former workers who have paid FICA taxes and cannot continue working for 12 months or more.
