Work: Preparing For Disability -- Short Term

Do Not Speak Of "Disability" As If It Is A Choice

Next » « Previous


Even though we encourage you to set your own date for leaving work on disability, when you speak with your employer, insurance company or government agency, do not discuss disability as if it were a choice. In their world, "disability" does not involved a choice. You are either "disabled" or you are not.

If you are still working and speaking with your employer about the subject, let him or her know that “I’m disabled, but struggling to stay on the job to make the transition easier for you (the employer.)”
