How Social Security Disability benefits can help you

On Behalf of | Jul 6, 2017 | Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

For over 80 years, the Social Security program has helped millions of Americans through many stages of life. Today, among the many benefits that the Social Security Administration offers are multiple programs designed to help Americans in need. Their Social Security Disability benefits programs are designed to help Americans who are disabled and unable to work.

A disability can take many forms. It could be a serious illness such as cancer or lung disease, it could be a mental condition like depression or panic attacks or it could be a serious injury such as a back, brain or neck injury. Regardless of the type, if the injury is serious enough that you are unable to maintain gainful employment, and the condition is serious enough that it is expected to last at least a year or end in death, you may qualify.

The process is not necessarily easy however. In fact, as many as two thirds who initially apply are initially denied. This may be true even if your condition is serious enough that you are unable to work.
