Social Security Disability supports those with brain trauma

After you suffer a head injury, you may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. A serious brain injury has the potential to change your life in many ways, and in some ways, it may make it hard to return to work. While there's no way to know if you'll have to go without a job forever, if you're unable to work for the foreseeable future, SSD payments may be right for you.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes brain injuries as a disability in many cases. The administration understands that people who struggle with these kinds of injuries may need financial support to help them as they recover and well into the future.

To obtain this compensation, you need to have the SSA review your case and determine if you are disabled. You can be qualified as disabled if you prove that you can't do the work you used to do before you got hurt, if the injury stops you from learning to do new work or if the injury is expected to cause you a disability for at least a year or to result in your eventual death.

Through the SSA, you may be able to receive one or both of the benefits offered. These include SSD and Supplement Security Income (SSI). While SSD provides a payment to you to help support you, SSI provides additional income to boost the money you have to work with each month. Your attorney can help you find out if you could qualify for one or both of these benefits.
