What does the SSA mean by medical equivalence?

Social Security Disability Income can sometimes be a confusing prospect for Staten Islanders who are unsure if they meet the criteria. One of the keys to getting SSDI benefits is to have an impairment that is on the Listing of Impairments. However, if the injury, illness or condition does not specifically appear on the listing, people might not realize that they can still get benefits if it is medically equivalent to one that is listed.

Injured construction worker might need workers' compensation

Construction projects are seemingly everywhere in New York. Between building new housing developments and commercial structures, performing maintenance and repairs and more, there is plenty of work for construction workers. While these workers are generally professional and make sure to adhere to proper safety procedures, the construction industry has many accidents that cause injuries and fatalities.

Dangers to contractors could spark workers' compensation claims

Contractors are a vital part of the New York City workforce. Just like any other worker, they can be injured and lose their lives in a workplace accident. For contractors, understanding when they can get workers' compensation benefits and how to go about it can be confusing. Since a recent study indicates the rising danger to contractors, those who have been injured when working in this capacity and families who have lost a loved one should be cognizant of how to be approved for workers' compensation benefits or death benefits after an accident.
