Although going to work may not always be an Oklahoma resident's first choice of activity, most people enjoy the feeling of having a job and earning their own income. As children, individuals depend on their parents and other adults for support, and when a person is able to step out on their own and provide for their own needs they may feel a sense of accomplishment. Work is not always easy, but for many it is a necessary element of living the lives that they enjoy.
Because of this, losing the ability to work can be devastating, not just for the affected person but for their entire family. When a person supports their loved ones with their income, an entire household may be thrown into financial peril when a disabling condition curtails the capacity to work. Illnesses, injuries and other ailments may force hardworking individuals out of their jobs and cause them to look into benefits options to care for their needs.
