Seeking SSDI benefits for loved one can be role of caretaker

With loved ones like parents and grandparents, the cycle of life can turn the roles from caretakers to the cared-for. It is only natural that children look after aging parents and grandparents and look out for their best interests. In some Tennessee families, children are the primary caretakers for their aging elders. One aspect of care taking can be handling their loved one's finances.

Taking care of finances is just one part of a caretaker's role in their loved one's life. However, it can be crucial in ensuring that their loved one has money with which to live. One source of potential income can be Social Security Disability income that can help to off-set the burden of a person's injury or illness. Oftentimes, injury or illness can render a loved one unable to work and thus, there is an inability to secure the income they need to survive.

Illnesses can lead to long-term medical conditions that can render a person disabled. Blindness, for example, is a common condition that can qualify a person for SSDI benefits. These benefits must be sought out -- they are not automatically granted to the person in need. That's where a caretaker may need to step in on behalf of their disabled loved one.

Caretakers can step in to aid their loved one in seeking SSDI benefits. Many Chattanooga residents serve as caretakers in some way, shape or form for their loved ones. Helping with the financial aspects and the paperwork can be worthwhile as a loved one's injury or illness may make it difficult for them to begin or complete the process.
