Most individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere are under the impression that they will no longer work once they reach retirement age. While this is rather common throughout the U.S., some individuals stop working because they suffered an injury. No one can expect or plan for being a victim in an accident. However, the aftermath of a serious incident could leave a victim temporarily or permanently disabled.
Learning to live with a disability, whether it is for a few years or the rest of one’s life is challenging. What is also challenging is not being able to make an income to cover any living expenses. This is where Social Security disability benefits can really help. These benefits could help cover basic living expenses that were once covered by the disabled person’s income.
