Amazing Resources For People on Social Security Disability and Their Caretakers: Part 1
Since its founding during the Great Depression, the Social Security Disability Insurance program has made life more bearable for millions of Americans, who would otherwise face crippling poverty or a complete lack of independence.
Unfortunately, if you’re injured or disabled, the difficulties don’t stop upon approval of your SSDI claim. Whether you receive benefits or care for a loved one on SSDI, you can use continual help and support, which you’ll find with these valuable resources:
- Ticket to Work Program
Interested in returning to work, but worried about losing your benefits? Join the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work Program, a free and voluntary opportunity for SSDI and SSI beneficiaries. You can safely explore a variety of work options while enjoying protection from medical continuing disability reviews. Visit the program overview at the SSA’s website to learn more.
- NAIDW’s Social Security Disability Support
Sometimes, when your disability gets you down, all you need is a little encouragement from somebody who has been in your position. That’s exactly what you’ll find at the Social Security Disability Support forum maintained by the National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers (NAIDW). Stop by the chat room or check out the numerous links posted by the site’s administrator.
- Telling Our Disability Stories: The ATC Podcast
If you ever feel alone due to your disability, listen to the ATC Podcast for an instant sense of belonging. The program features heartening stories from individuals with disabilities.
- Can I Get Paid…As a Caregiver?
This AARP guide provides extensive insight into the role of caregivers and the potential for receiving compensation. It offers a valuable reminder of the importance of taking care of your own financial and emotional health as you also care for loved ones with disabilities.
