Disability benefits battle ends in $206,000 of benefits for sick man

A man that struggled with heart failure and needed to battle the Social Security Administration for years to receive his due benefits watched as his comfortable life slowly slid into desperation and poverty as his health only steadily worsened.

In both instances, an afflicted individual with the disease can be rendered unable to work.
