We all like to plan and prepare for the future, but the reality is that we cannot always prepare for everything life throws at us. We cannot predict whether or not we will suffer a serious injury or illness. And we certainly cannot expect that these injuries or illnesses could be debilitating. Nonetheless, many individuals in Georgia and other states across the nation face this unfortunate reality. Additionally, the injury or illness they are currently suffering has become so disabling that he or she is unable to work. This can take a huge toll on the individual financially as well as physically, mentally and emotionally.
The Social Security Administration designed the Social Security disability program as a means to help individuals in these situations. While it can be a challenging matter to experience, applying for these benefits could be just what one needs to overcome the financial burdens caused by a disability.
