Are you unable to work due to an injury or other medical condition? Have you considered Social Security Disability benefits to help you through this difficult time? Social Security benefits are designed for those who are expecting an injury to keep them out of work for a year or more.
If you have a child that is also facing a disability they may be eligible for SSD benefits. According to the Social Security Administration, a child must have a physical or mental condition that seriously constrains his or her activities, and is expected to last one year or more.
