We meet a lot of clients who feel ashamed for filing for disability benefits when they have worked every day of their lives and provided for their families without government assistance.
The first thing I say to such an individual is…SSDI is not welfare or a “handout”. You have been working most of your life and paying Social Security taxes to help you stay afloat in case you ever become disabled and unable to work.
To put it plainly, you’ve paid into the Social Security program and it is YOUR money to get back when you are unable to maintain employment due to a physical and/or mental impairment.
If you have questions about benefits you may qualify for, call us today, we would love to be of assistance to you.
