Work: Preparing For Disability -- Short Term

Whether And When To Go On Disability Is A Question Of Your Mental And Physical Health And Your Finances -- Not Of Morality Or Other Issues

Next » « Previous


Whether and when to go on disability is a question of your mental and physical health and your finances. In fact, going on disability is a positive track because you are freeing up energy to help your body battle the disease.

Whether and when to go on disability is not about:

  • Morality
  • Work ethics
  • Giving up or giving in to the illness
  • Losing control
  • Surrendering
  • Giving up hope
  • The beginning of the end
  • Becoming a leach on society

You paid for the benefits you will receive on disability -- by working, and by paying taxes for Social Security Disability and Medicare. You are entitled to them.

Even if you apply for government benefits which have requirements of limited income and resources, you've paid for those programs through your taxes.
