As we age, we may notice that shoveling snow after another Minnesota winter storm may be harder on our backs than it used to be, and we may realize that it doesn't take much activity for us to lose our breath and become tired more easily. Aging is a part of life, and we simply must accept that some tasks will become a little more challenging, but as long as we are in good health our bodies should still be able to do a lot.
Minnesota residents who are disabled and have limited financial resources may be eligible to obtain Supplemental Security Income benefits. However, just because an individual is eligible to obtain benefits does not mean that he or she will receive disability benefits. This is because the Social Security Administration requires folks to prove that they have a disability, and proving that one is indeed disabled can be a challenging task.
Minnesota workers who become disabled and can longer do their jobs may be entitled to obtain Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Unfortunately, obtaining benefits can be just as challenging as living with a disability or a life-threatening illness.
