When someone is forced to miss work long term, it can do a lot of damage financially and emotionally. While the paychecks have stopped coming, the bills do not, and in this event, puts the individual in a tough position. They face losing their homes due to unpaid mortgages, having vehicles repossessed and in some cases, may have to file for bankruptcy. However, in many cases, these financially devastating events can be avoided if these people are able to receive the proper funding to stay afloat during their time of need.
Many times, individuals who file for long term disability are forced to go through lengthy appeal processes, while there are still payments and medical bills needing to be handled, and no income to do so. This results in individuals with a long term disability losing control of their financial lives all together. This is an unfortunate occurrence that could be avoided entirely if the proper steps are taken in the process of receiving your Social Security Disability benefits.
