Are You Ill, Unable to Work, And Worried About Social Security And a Will? What To Know

There are a lot of different fears that can come across your mind when you are diagnosed with a serious medical condition and you don't think you can work for much longer. It can be even more stressful if you think death is in the near future. If you are dealing with these current situations, you want to meet with a lawyer to make sure that you get all your benefits. Gather all the information you have about the different insurance policies and investments you have so you can move forward taking action. 

Estate Planning 

You want to meet with a lawyer so you can start planning your will. This way there isn't any confusion or room for errors when the lawyer has to distribute money or assets, or when it comes to managing the estate. Have all of your asset and financial information with you when you go to meet with a lawyer so you can complete your will accurately. 

Social Security Insurance

If you want to be sure that someone will get your social security benefits, or that you won't be denied it when you need benefits, find a social security lawyer to talk about social security insurance services. You can talk about what you think you should get when you are finally at retirement age, and what someone else should get if they take over your benefits. If the government is trying to deny you your benefits right now, this is another reason to consult with a lawyer. 

Employer Benefits 

If your employer has a stock sharing or profit sharing program, or you could get other types of compensation and benefits through them, you want to discuss this information with a lawyer to make sure that you get as much possible. You also want to talk with the lawyer about making sure this is included in your will. 

You don't want to end up broke while you are tying to live out the end of your life. You also don't want to miss out on any money that you qualify for or that is meant for you. Meet with a lawyer so that you can go over the different sources of money you could have coming in, or that you are able to leave behind if something happens to you. The sooner you are able to get this all managed, the easier it will be to rest easy.

My Real Life Crime Drama

I never even dreamed that I would be accused of a crime that I did not commit. I mean, stuff like that only happens on TV right? Well, at least that's what I thought until it actually happened to me. After being falsely identified by a witness, I found myself standing trial for a crime that I was truly innocent of. It was only with the help of my lawyer that I was able to prove my innocence and ultimately get back my good name. Watching my lawyer present my case to the jury, I must admit that I was impressed. It was in this moment that I knew just how special the legal system truly is. Today, I write this blog as a way of honoring the system that worked for me and to ensure that everyone has someplace to turn when dealing with legal issues of their own.
