Social Security Disability

While many of us dream of a time when we won't have to work, few of us have considered the possibility of an illness or an injury keeping us from our jobs. A surprising number of people suffer from disabilities that affect their ability to work, and many become disabled before they reach retirement age. Because most people don't plan for such a disability, programs like Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) exist to help disabled workers and families manage their lives should an untimely injury or illness occur. FindLaw's Social Security Disability section has articles covering a wide variety of topics concerning disability filing and benefits.
