Illness can make it difficult to work, SSDI benefits possible

For most Chattanooga residents, illness or injury never seriously affects their life to the point where they cannot work and cannot pay their bills. However, a serious injury or illness can result in that very outcome.

Despite a person's best efforts, they may be unable to work due to a disabling illness or condition. There are other options available to those who suffer an illness that makes it difficult or impossible to work.

One option is to seek Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. These benefits can help to supplement one's income, if one has been unable to work for a period of at least a year due to your illness. This injury or illness could have been sustained in many different ways. Regardless, it is meant to help those that can no longer perform work due to the debilitating nature of their condition.

These benefits can supplement income for ill and injured people who may be otherwise unable to meet their financial obligations due to their inability to work. At Dale Buchanan & Associates, we have helped our fair share of disabled and ill workers receive the benefits they are entitled. There is a range of illnesses that could be considered compensable by SSDI benefits standards.

In addition to the injured or ill person, the loss of a person's ability to work can be very hard on family members as well. There may be children, depending on a parent's ability to bring home a paycheck. In addition, it can be difficult to watch a loved suffer with both an illness and a newfound disability. There are ways to balance out one's inabilities to bring home a paycheck.
