On disability? Watch what you post online

As an Alabama resident who currently receives disability benefits from the U.S. Social Security Administration, you may already know that your ability to continue to receive benefits depends on whether your disability is likely to ever improve, among other factors. At the Law Offices of Clark, James, Hanlin & Hunt, LLC, we understand that the government is considering granting the SSA access to the social media accounts of those receiving disability benefits in an effort to help reduce the number of Americans making fraudulent disability claims.

Why so many disability applicants do not get benefits

An injury or illness can bring your life to a temporary halt while you recover. For many, a few days in bed or under medical supervision is enough to get them back on their feet. However, some illnesses or injuries can sideline you for a much longer time, indefinitely placing your plans on hold and your finances in jeopardy.

Financial abuse in nursing homes

On our blog, we recently explored sexual abuse that occurs within nursing homes. In this post, we will look into financial abuse, another problem in many nursing homes. Financial abuse is especially concerning for a variety of reasons and it is important to draw attention to this problem so that victims can understand their legal options and address wrongdoing. Unfortunately, many people have endured financial abuse without realizing it, while others have stayed silent because they were worried that trying to hold someone accountable for their mistreatment would be pointless.
