Disabled workers and Social Security

Workers in Missouri who become disabled may no longer be able to financially support themselves. Workers in the United States have an almost 20 percent chance of being disabled for a minimum of three months throughout their working life. Many workers have no disability insurance coverage and no means to replace their income while disabled, which could result in severe financial troubles.

ADHD increases crash risk for young drivers

A study published by JAMA Pediatrics shows that young drivers with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are 36 percent more likely to be involved in an accident than other young motorists. Missouri residents should know that, according to experts, the risks around drivers with ADHD are manageable.

Distinguishing SSDI from SSI

Missouri residents should be aware that the Social Security Administration provides two kinds of benefits. Even though Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) and supplement security income (SSI) can both be used to supplement the income of people who are prevented from working because of a medical disability, there are some key differences in the two programs.

Invisible disabilities: not all in your head

As one of the countless Americans suffering from conditions that are not immediately apparent to others, you are fighting a constant battle – not only the battle to have your illness recognized as a disability, but a fight to be heard and understood by those who may not take you seriously because they cannot see you suffering. This is the heartbreaking reality for you and many other Missouri residents.

Understanding how large truck accidents occur

Missouri drivers may be more likely to get into an accident if they are driving trucks with defects or if they have been driving long hours. According to IIHS research, an accident is four times as likely to occur when a truck has a serious defect. A defect may include faulty brakes, poor quality tires or lights that don't work properly. If a truck had faulty brakes, it was 50 percent more likely to be involved in an accident compared to a truck that did not have such an issue.
