Some of the hard-working people who are suffering from disabilities become disabled on the job due to an accident or other unfortunate event. This may qualify them for workers' compensation benefits.

The question is, if the disability that occurred due to the work-related injury is expected to last a year or more, can these individuals also qualify for Social Security Disability benefits?

Social Security disability benefits were created to help disabled Americans and their families by providing consistent income, vocational rehabilitation, and other services. If you can get approved, disability benefits give you and your family the ability to face everyday financial challenges when you’re unable to work.

Benefits may be available to you in two forms: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Each program has its own eligibility rules and you may be denied for one program, even if you are approved for the other.

Disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA) are intended to provide essential financial support for disabled Americans of all ages. Unfortunately, getting benefits can be a long and cumbersome process for some applicants.

If you can get approved though, disability offers consistent income, taking the place of your decreased or lost income from employment.
