The holidays are a happy and fun time of year for many Oklahoma residents. With time off of work, individuals may choose to travel or host loved ones and friends in their homes so that they can share in meals, gifts and love. However, not everyone who is not working over the holidays does so by choice. Men and women throughout the country who live with disabilities may be unable to secure or hold down the jobs they need to get by.
Disabilities can range from the visible to the invisible, with some clearly apparent, manifesting as physical ailments and others that are hidden, taking control over their victims’ mental health. Disabilities afflict individuals of all ages and backgrounds and can last for years if not for the duration of their victims’ lives. Some individuals who struggle with disabilities may be able to work part-time or in a limited capacity. Others may be unable to function without the support of others.
A disability can keep a person from earning the income that they need, but those who suffer from disabilities should know that they may have options for getting financial help. Disability benefits offered through the Social Security Administration may be available to them if they qualify for the various programs offered through the government.
To understand how and where to apply for such help, individuals can turn to legal professionals like those of the Law Center for Social Security Disability. Through consultation and guidance, clients of the firm successfully prepare and submit applications that demonstrate their disabilities and their needs so that they may be considered for needed disability support. This year, disabled Americans are encouraged to take the legal steps they are entitled to make toward securing support from the Social Security Administration.
