Hematological conditions that qualify for Social Security

One of the most confusing aspects about Social Security disability is understanding which conditions will qualify.

One of those includes disorders affecting the body’s hematological functions.

Different types of financial benefits

When someone is in need of financial assistance from the government, it can be confusing to understand which type of help should be sought.

While many people think that Social Security Disability benefits are only available to adults, some children in Rhode Island may qualify.
