Individuals who are unable to work because of an injury can sometimes be overwhelmed with a number of questions. How will families be taken care of? How will the usual bills be paid not to mention any medical expenses from the injury? For many who have been disabled from a work injury, assistance for themselves and their families can come in the form of social security disability benefits. Navigating this system can be difficult, however.
There are several different steps that must be taken in order to successfully obtain benefits. You must be able to prove you are not working or are making less than a particular dollar amount. The disability must also be of a certain severity and will limit your employment for more than one year. These points, along with several others, can sometimes be difficult to properly document and gather if one is doing the legwork alone.
