Preparing for a disability hearing

Social Security Disability benefits can serve as a lifeline for those who are no longer able to work because of a physical or mental disability. For some people who have given up hope, these benefits can allow them to continue functioning and taking care of key responsibilities, such as providing for their loved ones. However, the process of securing these benefits can be stressful, especially when it comes to disability hearings. If you have a hearing over your eligibility for Social Security Disability, it is pivotal to do everything you can to secure an optimal outcome.

Receiving SSI and SSDI together

If you have developed a medical condition or experienced some type of injury that prevents you from working to your full capacity, you might be able to qualify to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. Many people in Mississippi find these benefits essential when they are unable to work. There is also another type of benefit program for disabled persons who are not capable of working and that is called Supplemental Security Income.

The emotional perks of Social Security Disability

It goes without saying that Social Security Disability benefits can be very advantageous from a financial point of view. However, it is also important to keep in kind that these benefits can be very helpful from an emotional perspective also. Those who cannot work because of a disability they are struggling with may suffer in many ways, not only struggling with financial hardships but stress, depression and even problems in their personal relationships. Some people push off applying for these benefits for various reasons, which can be detrimental, and it is essential to realize the impact that these benefits can have on someone's life (and the lives of their loved ones also).

Is it possible to work after qualifying for SSDI benefits?

Even if you have qualified for Social Security disability benefits, you may not want to quit working entirely. If you want to find a way to return to work in Mississippi, the Ticket to Work program could give you the support you need to find a job. The Social Security Administration created this program to give beneficiaries of Social Security disability payments additional resources to help them return to work.
