Whether you have been seriously injured at work or in a car accident, or have been diagnosed with a serious illness, doing simple everyday tasks can prove to be painful or impossible. You may also be dealing with long term diseases and disabilities. Any of these could be reasons to apply for Social Security disability benefits, but you might be hesitant to admit you need to. Before diving into the process of applying, there are some people you should talk to for advice and information:
If you’re applying for disability benefits because of an injury or illness, try to get an approximate recovery time and an approximate date for when you can return to work. If the answer is “indefinitely,” have your doctor speak to your employer. They can work together to help you figure out if you can work during recovery, and if so, how much.
