Don’t Let Anybody Say You Don’t Deserve Help

Listen, nobody wants to rely on the government to make ends meet.

It doesn’t feel good to need government benefits, like Social Security Disability if you get seriously sick and can’t work.

What people don’t realize is this: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is an insurance program for health-related job loss. Social Security Disability is not a handout.

You paid for it with the Social Security taxes deducted from your paychecks. Like with premiums you pay for car insurance, you should be covered in the event you need it. Absolutely no shame in that.

And when medical conditions have turned everything upside down, disability benefits help you keep your life on sturdy ground.

You worked for it. You earned it. Don’t hesitate to claim the benefits you deserve.

Putting his hand on her shoulder, a man talks to a woman as they sit in their living room. Social Security Disability benefits are a crucial source of stability when you can't work due to bad health, but they are modest.

Another Social Security Disability Myth: The Neighbor Who Doesn’t Deserve Benefits

Maybe you know someone, or heard about someone, who seems like they could work, but they receive disability benefits. 

Privately, they probably have more health problems going on than you can see, such as diseases that don’t change the way they look, or mental health disorders that make it hard for them to function in a workplace.

Another thing to know is that disability benefits aren’t like winning a jackpot.

It’s a modest monthly amount to help you pay for truly basic needs. Nobody’s buying a boat with their disability checks.

Don’t get us wrong, when a medical crisis has ripped up your life, the monthly checks are a crucial source of stability and peace.


If you worked a fair amount, you’re insured. And you deserve decent living conditions.
