Improving access to disability benefits among homeless persons with mental illness: an agency-specific approach to services integration. (1/132)

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated a joint initiative of the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to improve access to Social Security disability benefits among homeless veterans with mental illness. METHODS: Social Security personnel were colocated with VA clinical staff at 4 of the VA's Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) programs. Intake assessment data were merged with SSA administrative data to determine the proportion of veterans who filed applications and who received disability awards at the 4 SSA-VA Joint Outreach Initiative sites (n = 6709) and at 34 comparison HCHV sites (n = 27 722) during the 2 years before and after implementation of the program. RESULTS: During the 2 years after the initiative began, higher proportions of veterans applied for disability (18.9% vs 11.1%; P < .001) and were awarded benefits (11.4% vs 7.2%, P < .001) at SSA-VA Joint Initiative sites. CONCLUSION: A colocation approach to service system integration can improve access to disability entitlements among homeless persons with mental illness. Almost twice as many veterans were eligible for this entitlement as received it through a standard outreach program.  (+info)

Trends in sickness benefits in Great Britain and the contribution of mental disorders. (2/132)

BACKGROUND: Government benefits paid to those unfit for work or the work market as a result of ill health have been rising dramatically in Great Britain, in parallel with increases throughout Europe and North America. Psychological conditions are known to be an important cause of sickness absence. This study set out to examine trends in government sickness and invalidity benefits in Britain between April 1984 and April 1995. The importance of mental disorders as a cause of 'incapacity' (the condition for which benefits are paid) was examined. METHODS: Data from the Department of Social Security were used to chart trends in incapacity according to gender, age group, employment category and cause. An exploratory ecological analysis of associations between regional rates of incapacity and socio-economic and health indices was also undertaken using correlation analysis and multiple regression. RESULTS: Steadily increasing rates of incapacity were observed, primarily reflecting increases in the longer-term 'invalidity' benefit. The non-employed made up a rising proportion of recipients. Regional incapacity rate was most strongly associated with socio-economic factors, particularly social class. Mental disorders were the second most numerous causal category and consisted mainly of milder conditions, namely depressive and neurotic disorders. CONCLUSION: The dramatic increase in incapacity benefits is unlikely to be attributable to changes in population size or structure. It contrasts with improvements in the objective health status of the population. Mental disorders, and particularly milder conditions, account for a substantial and increasing amount of incapacity. The data are consistent with the hypothesis that sickness benefits increasingly represent disguised unemployment.  (+info)

Disability management, employee health and fringe benefits, and long-term-disability claims for mental disorders: an empirical exploration. (3/132)

Mental disorders account for a large share of claims and benefit costs in both private and public long-term-disability (LTD) insurance programs. This is the first empirical study to explore factors that may explain variations in private-sector LTD claims incidence and cost across groups of employees. Employee fringe-benefit arrangements, including patterns of coverage for mental health treatment, are found to be important predictors of incidence rates. Award rates for public disability insurance coverage (SSDI) are also strongly related to claims incidence, suggesting that private LTD is an important pathway to SSDI benefits. Some employee disability-management strategies, such as front-line manager involvement and provision of alternative jobs for employees returning from disability leave, are predictive of lower claims rates and/or costs.  (+info)

Client with epilepsy in a work Brazilian rehabilitation center. (4/132)

INTRODUCTION: People with epilepsy (PWE) may have problems in obtaining or maintaining regular employment because of restrictions related to their handicap, social prejudices and also high rates of unemployment of the population. The main aim of this pilot study was to know the vocational rehabilitation problems involving PWE sent to a vocational rehabilitation center (VRC) in Rio de Janeiro. METHOD: Fifteen PWE were selected unbiased from those seen at the VCR. It was reviewed their records in the search of sociodemographic, health care, employment suitability and work rehabilitation data. RESULTS: Only one person was eligible for the training program, four were ineligible, six were temporarily ineligible, and the other four do not necessitate the rehabilitation, but as the majority, the better seizures control. CONCLUSIONS: The studied sample of selected PWE, but representative of the studied population, do not show any important successful in the vocational rehabilitation carried out at the VRC.  (+info)

Determining disability and blindness; substantial gainful activity guides. Social Security Administration. Final rules. (5/132)

We are revising our rules to reflect amendments to the Social Security Act (the Act) concerning the trial work period and the disability insurance reentitlement period. We are also clarifying certain standards we use to determine whether work is substantial gainful activity and whether an individual is entitled to a trial work period, thereby further explaining how we determine disability under titles II and XVI of the Act.  (+info)

Trapped in the neutral zone: another symptom of whiplash-associated disorder? (6/132)

Instability of the cervical spine following whiplash trauma has been demonstrated in a number of studies. We hypothesized that, in patients with whiplash-associated disorder, rotation of the head would be accompanied by an earlier onset of neck muscle activity to compensate for intrinsic instability. The aim of the study was to examine the range of motion (RoM) of the cervical spine and the onset and activity of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscles during axial rotation, in healthy control subjects and in patients with chronic whiplash-associated disorder. Forty-eight control subjects (42% male) and 46 patients (33% male) with chronic whiplash-associated disorder (symptoms lasting longer than 3 months) were examined. Cervical axial RoM differed significantly (P = 0.0001) between the groups, with the whiplash patients showing lower values (83 degrees +/- 30 degrees) than the healthy controls (137 degrees +/- 19 degrees). The whiplash patient group showed no evidence of the predicted earlier activation of SCM muscles. Many patients never reached the point in the RoM where SCM muscle activity rises steeply, as it does in the healthy controls (the 'elastic zone'), and their movements remained mostly within the region of low muscle activity (the 'neutral zone'). The whiplash patients appeared either unable or unwilling to drive the cervical spine into this region of high muscle activity, possibly because they were restricted by existing pain or fear of pain.  (+info)

Extension of expiration date for the respiratory body system listings. Social Security Administration (SSA). Final rule. (7/132)

We adjudicate claims at the third step of our sequential evaluation process for evaluating disability using the Listing of Impairments (the Listings) under the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. This final rule extends until July 2, 2002, the date on which the respiratory body system listings will no longer be effective. We have made no revisions to the medical criteria in these listings; they remain the same as they now appear in the Code of Federal Regulations. This extension will ensure that we continue to have medical evaluation criteria in the listings to adjudicate claims for disability based on impairments in the respiratory body system at step three of our sequential evaluation process.  (+info)

Old-age, survivors, and disability insurance and Supplemental Security Income for the aged, blind, and disabled; substantial gainful activity amounts; "services" for trial work period purposes--monthly amounts; student child earned income exclusion. Social Security Administration. Final rules. (8/132)

We are revising the rules to automatically adjust each year, based on any increases in the national average wage index, the average monthly earnings guideline we use to determine whether work done by persons with impairments other than blindness is substantial gainful activity; provide that we will ordinarily find that an employee whose average monthly earnings are not greater than the "primary substantial gainful activity amount," has not engaged in substantial gainful activity without considering other information beyond the employee's earnings; increase the minimum amount of monthly earnings and the minimum number of self-employed work hours in month that we consider shows that a person receiving title II Social Security benefits based on disability is performing or has performed "services" during a trial work period, and automatically adjust the earnings amount each year thereafter; increase the maximum monthly and yearly Student Earned Income Exclusion amounts we use in determining Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Program eligibility and payment amounts for student children, and automatically adjust the monthly and yearly exclusion amounts each year thereafter. We are revising these rules as part of our efforts to encourage individuals with disabilities to test their ability to work and keep working. We expect that these changes will provide greater incentives for many beneficiaries to attempt to work or, if already working, to continue to work or increase their work effort.  (+info)

Studies exploring functional impairments in health anxiety are almost exclusively cross-sectional, and mainly carried out in clinical settings. As most cases never find their way into psychiatric treatment, our knowledge on the long-term prognosis of health anxiety as it occurs in the general population is limited. We aimed to study the long term prognosis of health anxiety by employing subsequent disability pension award as a measure of global functioning. Methods: Using a historical cohort design, we utilized a unique link between a large epidemiological cohort study and a comprehensive national database. Information on disability benefit recipiency was obtained from Norwegian registry data, and merged with health information, including health anxiety and a range of potential confounders, from the Hordaland Health Study (HUSK) in Western Norway, 1997-99. Participants (N = 6819) were aged 40-46 at baseline, and the mean time of follow-up after participation was 3.6 years. Results: Health ...
Section 2. Disability Insurance Program The disability insurance (DI) program provides monthly cash benefits for disabled workers under age 65 and their dependents. Benefits were provided to disabled workers age 50 or older by the 1956 Social Security Amendments; benefits for their dependents were provided by the 1958 Social Security Amendments; and benefits to disabled workers under age 50 were provided by the 1960 amendments. GENERAL Many provisions of the DI program are identical to those of the OASI program. For example, all workers who are covered by OASI are also covered by DI. Contributions are made under the same provision of the Internal Revenue Code and are made on the same wage base. The DI portion of the OASDI tax is allocated to the Disability Insurance Trust Fund, which is the source of payment for monthly benefits to disabled workers and their dependents and for administrative expenses of the program. In addition, the revenue derived from the taxation of disability benefits is ...

The questions surrounding the administrative state and its law are really big. They are institutional and constitutional, and they demand rigorous thought and engagement outside the Chevron box.. If thats your view, do I have a reading recommendation for you: the first volume of the 2017 George Mason Law Review, capably edited by Katie Smithgall and Mackenzi Siebert (former students and now proud graduates of the Antonin Scalia Law School).

We are extending, until December 28, 2018, the expiration date of our disability examiner authority (DEA) rule, which authorizes State agency disability examiners to make fully favorable determinations without the approval of a State agency medical or psychological consultant in claims that we consider under our quick disability determination (QDD) and compassionate allowance (CAL) processes.

The administrative law judge issued his Findings of Fact and Interlocutory Order in this case on January 20, 1994, following a hearing on November 22, 1993. The applicant submitted a petition for commission review of the administrative law judges Findings and Order. Thereafter, both the employer and the insurer (collectively, the respondent) and the applicant submitted briefs. Prior to the hearing, the respondent conceded jurisdictional facts, an average weekly wage of $711.13, and a March 28, 1992 compensable injury. The respondent conceded and paid temporary total disability benefits from April 10, 1992 to February 10, 1993, and medical expenses incurred before February 11, 1993. The issues include the nature and extent of disability beyond that conceded, as well as liability for additional medical expenses. Also at issue was whether the respondent overpaid compensation by mistake of fact. The commission has carefully reviewed the entire record in this case, including the briefs submitted by ...
5.46 Pamela I. Anderson, Chairman. Richard T. Kreul, Commissioner. James R. Meier, Commissioner. MEMORANDUM OPINION The commission conferred about witness credibility and demeanor with the administrative law judge who presided at the hearing. Transamerica Ins. Co. v. ILHR Department, 54 Wis. 2d 272, 283-84 (1972). The administrative law judge found the applicant to be a credible witness. The commission does not dispute this. Rather, it modified the judges decision to provide what it believes is a more appropriate award given the applicants credible testimony and the opinions of her doctors.. In its petition for commission review, the respondent contends it should not have to pay continuing chiropractic treatment to the date of the judges order, noting that chiropractor Kumbalek himself fixed a healing plateau in 1992. However, chiropractic care is a reimbursable treatment expense, and the fact that an injured worker has reached the end of healing does not mean that no expenses for treatment ...

Downloadable! We estimate consumers%u2019 valuation of disability insurance using a stochastic lifecycle framework in which disability is modeled as permanent, involuntary retirement. We base our probabilities of worklimiting disability on 25 years of data from the Current Population Survey and examine the changes in the disability gradient for different demographic groups over their lifecycle. Our estimates show that a typical consumer would be willing to pay about 5 percent of expected consumption to eliminate the average disability risk faced by current workers. Only about 2 percentage points reflect the impact of disability on expected lifetime earnings; the larger part is attributable to the uncertainty associated with the threat of disablement. We estimate that no more than 20 percent of mean assets accumulated before voluntary retirement are attributable to disability risks measured for any demographic group in our data. Compared to other reductions in expected utility of comparable amounts, such

Own-occupation disability insurance covers individuals who cannot perform the specific duties that they have been trained to perform at their jobs.
To assure that a drug meets standards of identity, strength, quality, and purity before use, the US Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (Title 21, Part 211.137) sets forth the conditions under which an expiration date must be listed on drug product labels. With few exceptions, companies must list an expiration date on the immediate container and any outer packaging if the date is not legible through the outer packaging. When single-dose containers are packed in individual cartons, the expiration date may appear on the carton instead of the immediate container. Unfortunately, the CFR does not specify how expiration dates must be expressed. Thus, confusion sometimes occurs. For example, one pharmaceutical company listed JN05as the expiration date on a suppository package label; but does JNmean Januaryor June? Another company used an atypical abbreviation for April, AL,and produced a code which read AL 05,meaning April 2005.Yet another companys poliovirus vaccine (inactivated) listed ...

Statement from Stacy Cervenka, Director of Public Policy, American Foundation for the Blind. WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 30, 2020)-The American Foundation for the Blind vehemently opposes the Trump Administrations proposal to make life-sustaining Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) more difficult to obtain for people with disabilities.. Although people who are blind and low vision are succeeding in almost every career field, they still face numerous barriers to finding employment. From a young age, many blind students are held to low academic expectations and often dont have the same access to classroom materials and textbooks as their sighted peers, leaving them under-prepared for the workforce. Vocational rehabilitation agencies that provide people with disabilities the technology and skills they need in order to be gainfully employed are often insufficiently funded and staffed. Because of inadequate public transportation and paratransit services ...
What might be more startling is the fact that the rates have also been permutated for children: in the same two decade span, the amount of children who are considered mentally disabled has risen thirty five times. Mental illness is now the leading cause of disability in children.. There has been considerable debate on these numbers ever since they have come out. Many individuals are now alleging that many perfectly normal people are now considered to have a mental disorder due to the reach and power of big pharma, who benefits more when there are people needing drugs to combat psychiatric conditions. There is a Social Security Disability Insurance bent to this as well: the more people who are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance, the fewer that will get it if there are an overwhelming number of applications from those who are mentally disabled. Its a difficult subject, and many experts are waiting with interest to see how the numbers will stack up over the next few years.. ...

While receiving workers compensation benefits, plaintiff commenced a personal injury action. While the personal injury action was pending, the workers compensation carrier for plaintiffs employer moved the Workers Compensation Board to discontinue plaintiffs benefits on the grounds that he was no longer disabled as a result of the accident. The administrative law judge ruled in favor of the employers carrier, thus terminating plaintiffs benefits in 2006.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Author(s): Kreider, Brent. 1999 Abstract: This article provides new evidence about the impact of Social Security Disability Insurance on male labor force participation decisions based on estimates from a structural model of applications, awards, and state-contingent lifetime income flows. The lifetime framework makes it possible to consider long-term opportunity costs associated with early labor force withdrawal and the disincentive to applications resulting from the statutory waiting period before benefits may be received. Estimation techniques account for the self-selected nature of the pool of applicants when predicting the individual-specific probability of acceptance and the opportunity costs of applying.

After examining the briefs and appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously to grant the parties request for a decision on the briefs without oral argument. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(f); 10th Cir. R. 34.1(G). The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument. Claimant Annie L. Gore appeals from the district courts affirmance of the Social Security Administrations denial of benefits. Claimant applied for supplemental security income benefits in 1995; that application was denied both initially and upon reconsideration. After a hearing, an administrative law judge (ALJ) issued a decision concluding that claimant was not disabled under the Social Security Act and denying benefits. The Appeals Council denied review. Claimant brought suit in federal court. The magistrate judge recommended that the agencys denial of benefits be affirmed. After considering claimants objections, the district court adopted the magistrate judges recommendation. This appeal followed. On appeal, ...

Introduction. Long term music therapy for people with intellectual disabilities and the NDIS. As the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) fully rolls out across Australia, participants will be able to choose the providers of all their services. Upon entering the scheme, participants may use a NDIS planner who can provide advice regarding the range of services which may be accessed. Music therapy has a long history of working with people with intellectual disabilities (Alvin, 1965; Nordoff & Robbins, 1971) and is provided for under the support category of Capacity Building for Improved Daily Living in the NDIS Price Guide (Australian Department of Human Services (DHS), 2016).. To date the inclusion of music therapy in a participants NDIS plan has been ad hoc with some participants gaining approval for music therapy services and others not. To address these issues a White Paper was recently prepared for the Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA) discussing the inclusion of music ...

But in 2013, Lady Gaga announced she had torn the labrum in her hip that would require surgery. The 27 year-old needed several months of recovery and to cancel 22 dates on her Born This Way tour. This detour meant $25 million in ticket refunds - OUCH! Bret Michaels has banged his head quite a bit as lead singer of Poison. During a live performance at the 2009

Over the last few years, our federal courts have demonstrated more willingness to recognize the limitations associated with this disease and in 1998, the Ninth Circuit joined the Seventh and Tenth Circuits in recognizing chronic fatigue syndrome. The court in Reddick specifically referred to the diagnostic criteria issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as the Social Security Administrations Program Operations Manual Systems (POMS) guidelines for evaluating this impairment. The court held that it was an error for the administrative law judge to assess the claimant using a traditional pain approach without considering the factors recognized by the CDC and the POMS, and that the Residual Functional Capacity analysis must include the claimants fatigue. The court also noted that the claimants ability to pursue simple and minimal daily activities, by itself, was not a proper basis for questioning her credibility. Finally, the Reddick court held that a medical report cannot be ...

Trenton, NJ -On March 28, 2016, two parties filed challenges to the nomination petition of Senator Ted Cruz for the June 7, 2016 New Jersey Republican presidential primary election: Victor Williams and a group calling itself the South Jersey Concerned Citizens Committee. Both challenges were transmitted to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) as contested cases on April 4, 2016, to be heard on Monday, April 11, 2016 at the OALs office in Hamilton, New Jersey. Because both challenges argued that Senator Cruz failed to satisfy Article 2, Section 1 of the US Constitution, which requires one to be a natural born Citizen to serve as President, Administrative Law Judge Jeff S. Masin (ALJ) consolidated the challenges. At the consolidated hearing, Senator Cruzs counsel argued that the objectors lacked standing and that this is a non-justiciable question, thereby preventing the Secretary of State from considering or determining the validity of the objections. The objectors argued that Senator ...
The alternative means of proving a claim for Social Security Disability benefits is to provide medical proof of symptoms from the impairment that are so severe that the person could not function at any type of work. The focus is upon the medical proof as it relates to the ability to perform work activities. The difficulty, however, is in proving the both the symptoms and their severity.. For SLE it is fatigue that most often persuades Social Security Administrative Law Judges to award this assistance. It is critical that patients fully describe this problem, if it exists, every time they visit the doctors office. Social Security will obtain and review all of the medical records and search for consistent complaints of severe fatigue. One of the most common problems is the failure of the patient to fully discuss symptoms with the physician creating a lack of evidence relating to severe fatigue in the doctors notes.. This article has not attempted to review the application process or any of the ...
