I have heard so many horror stories of women unable to work and losing their jobs because of the Vaginal Mesh Injuries they have indured that I decided to look at SSD, social security disability and the chance for women getting benefits. I want to share what I have found with my readers.
This is An Overview of Social Security and SSD benefits
Social Security is based on the concept that while you were working , you paid taxes into the Social Security system, and now that you have become disabled , from the mesh, you can receive monthly benefits that are based on your reported earnings. The question will be, as we are finding out, will a doctor back you up and say you are disabled from the mesh?
This is a very unfortunate way to have the money you put into the Social Security system be reimbursed to you. The money you contributed is put into a huge trust for everyone and from this trust Social Security will hopefully pay you your benefits from your inability to work as a result of this mesh implant.
You may have to appeal the Social Security Disability Claim
Appealing a Social Security disability claim is a not an easy process. But, with the help of a good social security disability lawyer you may just be able to collect benefits and perhaps be able to get the medical intervention you so badly need at this time. It is worth trying..You would need an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer. You may have as battle on your hands. Social Security Disability lawyers do not charge for their services. They fall under the category of contingency lawyers.
Social Security Disability Insurance
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), the primary kind of Social Security Disability benefit, pays benefits to individuals who become disabled and are unable to work for a year or more. Here is where you may be able to get some help. This may be an even easier route. Social Security helps disabled persons return to work, and will continue to pay disability benefits until he or she is able to work again on a regular basis. This may be after the mesh is removed. Here may be a way to help you achieve that and locate a doctor that can help you.
I would think it is worth a try. Good luck…The Vaginal Mesh Helpline.
