Individuals in Colorado and elsewhere do a lot the plan for the future. Because the unexpected can happen, it is often best to be prepared for it. However, no matter how much a person prepares for the future and the unexpected, this does not prepare a person to deal with a shocking incident, like a serious accident or severe illness. Living with a disabling injury or illness can turn a person’s life upside down. It can cause a once working person to be unemployed, as it is impossible to work. The financial hardships can set it, causing disabled individuals to seek out assistance.
The Social Security disability program was designed to help those living with disabilities. The SSA understands how challenging it can be for those living with a debilitating injury or illness; therefore, they began initiated programs to help these individuals. While this is a very beneficial for the disabled, the application process can be overwhelming. Knowing that many applicants are initially denied can deter some, but this should not stop a person from seeking these often-necessary benefits.
