At one time or another, nearly all of us have been struck by an unexpected injury or illness. For some of us, recovering from these conditions is relatively easy given their minor nature. For others, a medical condition can befall them that is so severe that it leaves them disabled. While these conditions may be painful, affect a person's ability to carry out daily tasks and even decrease a person's life expectancy, they can also wreak havoc on an individual's financial well-being. This is because a disabling medical condition often leaves an individual unable to work during a time when medical expenses quickly mount. Fortunately, individuals who find themselves in this situation may be able to find relief through the Social Security Disability system. However, before benefits can be obtained, specific requirements about the medical condition must be met.
Whether it is due to a serious injury in an accident or a diagnosis of a medical condition, living with a debilitating condition can be challenging. This is especially true for those in Wisconsin and elsewhere who are suddenly unable to work because of their disability caused by an injury or illness. Nonetheless, most individuals are aware that Social Security Disability benefits are designed to provide financial assistance in this and other similar situations. However, some people are deterred from even applying for these benefits because many initial applications are denied.
When Wisconsin residents are hit with a sudden and unexpected medical condition, their finances should be the least of their concerns. Yet, at a time when they should be focused on their health, quality of life and spending time with loved ones, these individuals are often forced to consider how they are going to make ends meet. After all, a disabling condition can quickly lead to enormous medical expenses and prevent an individual from working and earning a wage.
Social Security disability is an important resource for disabled individuals to be familiar with because the benefits they can apply for may be able to help with their daily needs. Because most applications for Social Security disability benefits are initially denied, it is also important to be familiar with the Social Security disability appeals process.

Not every Northeast Wisconsin resident who seeks or is already getting Social Security Disability benefits needs them permanently. Some will want to try and get back to work.

Fortunately, there are work incentives offered so a person can try to work and receive benefits if they cannot. This post will discuss the trial work period.
