Disability Preparation Is Half the Battle
June 27th, 2014|
Accidents and illnesses can strike at any time. That’s why being prepared for a disability is so important. We hope to help make you more aware of how you can be ready for an injury or disease by telling you about a fantastic resource.
The Council for Disability Awareness aims to educate the public about the stark realities disabilities can pose to American workers and citizens. They have a tool available on their website that allows you to plug in your personal information to evaluate your risk of suffering a disability.
While this may catch the attention of some, others may be more focused on a tool that can show just how much a disability may cost you. Furthermore, information is available through the organization that can help you determine if you could pay your bills while disabled.
So what can you do to be more prepared for the chances of suffering a disability? Making sure you are paying enough into your Social Security Disability benefits is crucial, but this money may not be enough if you are left unable to work. That’s why many experts say having a long-term disability insurance policy can also be beneficial.
At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, our team of disability attorneys understands how overwhelming the information available about disability benefits can be. That’s why we urge you to contact us with questions if you are suffering from a medical condition that has left you unable to work.
