The shock of being injured in an auto accident raises many questions. For example, what happens nows? How long with I receive benefits from my Auto Insurance PIP (Personal Injury Protection) Policy? How long will my Employment Sick Leave last? Will I qualify for Short or Long-Term Disability from my Employer's Benefit Package? All these and more questions are quite common. Join me, ESTRA in discussing the Early Stages of Disability today.

Dating in general is difficult; but, dating with a disability is daunting at times to say the least. In 2011, I found myself back on the dating circuit after being married for 14 years. Not only was the entire dating scene different but I was different--this time I was dating after being diagnoised with Chronic Inflammatory Demylinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP).
I was dating without the ability to define who I was by the work I did because my illness had taken that away from me. I mean, think about it, the first or second question that we usually ask after meeting someone is “what type of work do you do?”
So I found myself emotionally naked. I was once told by a potential girlfriend that my limited mobility on some days was simply "too much work and took too much preplanning". Yes, you do have to think a little more about the accessibility of venues when you date someone with a disability.
Alanna Higginson, in her Aug 06, 2013 Op-Ed piece in The Advocate wrote “Remember, ability isn't permanent or a right. It can be taken away in an instance. Your life as you know it can be altered dramatically by a terrible accident, mental breakdown, or the even onset of diabetes."
In this episode we talk with Caitlin McAndrews, Esq. of McAndrews Law Offices about the assistance a law firm can provide in securing appropriate special education for a child with disability. Also joining us will be Mark Friese, Vice President, Merrill Lynch Special Needs Group to talk about the financial aspects of ensuring funds are available for all the special needs of children with disabilities.
Social Security Disability benefits are not easy to obtain. No matter what anyone tells you and regardless of the claim, the government does not make it easy to become a disability recipient. There is a hefty standard along with eligibility standards and the medical criteria needed for approval is strict. But just who is making that decision on your claim? Join disability lawyers Brian Mittman and Scott Daniels as they discuss who the decision makers are upon an initial application for benefits and at the hearing level.
