4 Financial Resources Available to Disabled Workers

Each day, thousands of Americans suffer injuries or are diagnosed with health conditions that prevent them from returning to work. This can cause financial struggles, and the Social Security Disability lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin would like to tell you about a few options that may be available to help with the mounting costs of disabilities:

  1. Longer-Term Disability- Many health insurance policies provided by employers allow for a long-term disability plan. These benefits can provide as much as 70 percent of an employee’s typical pay for a period of up to several months.
  2. Social Security Disability (SSD)- If you are unable to work for longer than one year, benefits provided through the Social Security Administration (SSA) may be your best option. SSD benefits are provided to disabled workers who meet the requirements of the program until they are able to return to their jobs.
  3. Supplemental Security Income- Another resource for income is available through the SSA. Supplemental Security Income is often provided to Americans who are blind, elderly, or disabled.
  4. Temporary Assistance For Needy Families– This grant program is provided through The Office of Family Assistance and can provide cash payments to help with daily expenses, such as food, clothing, and transportation.

The processes to receive funds from these programs can be complex. If you have any questions about how to get the benefits you deserve, feel free to call us at (800) 477-7315 and we’ll be happy to help.
