Has an injury or medical condition left you unable to work? Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) may be the answer to help provide for you and your family. Funded over the years through a deduction from your paychecks, SSDI functions as a safety net for you and other workers.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) provides benefits to millions of people in the United States. Within that group are more than 1 million children who have severe disabilities and hail from low-income households – those with little or no income and resources.
Social Security benefits can provide crucial financial help to people with disabilities. Still, the benefits offered are not exactly huge sums of money. These payments are typically just enough to cover the costs of medical bills and everyday living expenses. To supplement your payments, perhaps you are thinking about getting a part-time job. The extra income may sound appealing, but you should think carefully about working while receiving disability benefits.
We see this happen so many times.
