While Colorado residents are working, they enjoy a certain amount of independence and the freedom their income allows them to have, regardless of the amount of money one is actually earning. It is the independence that is appealing. This is why, when an injury prevents someone from working, they often find it difficult to ask others for help. Asking a family member is difficult enough, asking the Social Security Administration for Social Security Disability benefits, a system that one has contributed to, can be even more difficult because the process can seem much more complex and daunting.
The requirements that must be met to obtain benefits can change subtly but significantly each year. The year 2018 saw changes take place in many aspects of SSD benefits. Keeping abreast with them can be difficult, especially if someone is already suffering from a disabling condition. The conditions that may qualify for SSD benefits can range from those that affect one physically to cognitively, and all of them can make gathering papers and going from office to office a challenge.
