The shock and stress associated with suffering from a disability is often quite debilitating. People often experience a loss of freedom if they are forced to rely on others for help with meeting their day-to-day needs and financial worries can arise due to difficulties with employment. If your disability is related to a mental condition, such as depression, anxiety or some other type of mental illness, your situation may be complicated by the general lack of understanding about mental illness and its effects. Although nothing can completely erase the strain of dealing with a disability, alleviating financial stress can go a long way toward freeing up your time and mental energy so that you can focus on your health. SSD benefits can help with this aspect of your disability.
