Work is how we sustain our way of life, earn money to care and provide for our loved ones, and enjoy the pleasures of life. Yet, when we are no longer able to work due to a medical condition, the shortage of income can greatly affect and even devastate not only our lifestyle, but our ability to make a living. If you are unable to work due to a medical condition, filing for disability benefits may help recoup and replace lost income. However, the process in applying for disability benefits can be lengthy, burdensome, and too often ends in denial.
