Is your injury or illness holding you back in the workplace? If so, there are several benefits for people with disabilities that you should be aware of. These are benefits that you’re entitled to. That’s why it’s so important to be informed.
If you suffer from any form of disability or illness that prevents you from working or hinders your performance, you most likely qualify to receive some form of benefits. Here is a list of the most common benefits for people with disabilities:
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD). This program provides benefits to you or even certain family members if you have worked for a long enough duration of time and have paid enough in Social Security taxes.
Social Security Income (SSI). One of the more unique benefits for people with disabilities, SSI is needs-based and offers benefits to those with a very limited income.
Workers’ Compensation. If you’ve been injured or become ill on the job, you may be entitled to lost wages and certain benefits.
Personal Injury. If you have been injured in any way due to an accident, animal bite, fire, medical malpractice or more, you may be entitled to certain benefits.
