Arthritis is a debilitating and painful condition that can have an impact on various areas of your life, including your ability to work. Many people diagnosed with this disease live and work with relative ease thanks to medication and other forms of treatment, but the most severe cases can be crippling, overwhelming a person's ability to enjoy a certain quality of life.
When an individual suffers from a long-term disability, develops a mental impairment later in life, is seriously injured in an accident or has any other disability that leaves them unable to work, Social Security Disability benefits are a place that they can turn.
Every day, countless Americans with unique mental conditions find that they face hardships that others simply do not share. And, while these mental conditions are often difficult enough to deal with by themselves, they can be especially challenging when they make it virtually impossible for the individual to work and earn income on a daily basis.
For many of those with disabilities, proficient and competent medical care is an absolute necessity. Thankfully, medical care is often provided to disabled individuals who qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) through Medicare and Medicaid.
