If you receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, then your doctor has likely determined that you have impairments that prevent you from becoming gainfully employed. If you're unable to support yourself with what you receive, then you may wonder if you're allowed to get a job. You may be able to under the Social Security Administration's (SSA) "work incentives" program.
You don't have any kids yourself, but you go on a ride with a friend who has children. The whole time, you're shocked and slightly scared. They seem like they're barely looking at the road.
It happens all the time. A disgruntled relative was left out of a deceased individual's will or receives far less than they expected to get from the decedent's estate. They decide to try to right the perceived wrong and contest the will.
Throughout history, many people have taken special care to protect those with disabilities from harm. For that reason, it is a particular shock when a disabled person is injured or killed in an accident. That happened recently in North Carolina when a man in a wheelchair was hit and killed by a car.
If you're injured on the job, it's natural to have some concerns about the future. From the impact on your finances to your ability to make a full recovery, there will be a lot going through your head.
