Disability is something most people don’t like to think
about. But, the chances that you’ll become disabled probably
are greater than you realize. If you have become unable to work due to injury, or illness, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits.

Detailed instructions can be found on their website.
Social Security disability benefits are paid through two programs: the
Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) program and
the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. For specific information about your situation, you should speak with a Social Security representative. To do so, please contact Social Security at (800) 772-1213, or visit their website online at http://www.socialsecurity.gov for further information.
Who can get Social Security disability benefits?
Social Security pays benefits to people who can’t work
because they have a medical condition that’s expected
to last at least one year or result in death. Federal law
requires this very strict definition of disability. While some
programs give money to people with partial disability or
short-term disability, Social Security does not.
