The complicated picture of disability

Suffering from an injury or illness can be devastating in ways that people don't always realize right away. Of course there is the initial pain, but that can also lead to anxiety, frustration and depression which can further complicate health problems and make it all but impossible to recover.

Funding for disability benefits at the center of political battle

Any worker who is unable to work due to disability or age should understand that there are options to pursue benefits that can provide crucial financial support. Without the ability to work, a person can struggle enormously to cover daily living expenses, medical care and other basic needs.
