Why Pursue Social Security Disability Benefits After a Brain Injury?

Previously, we’ve written about how to pursue Social Security Disability benefits after a brain injury accident. Today, we are not going to discuss how to file for Social Security disability, but rather why you should consider filing if you’ve suffered a serious traumatic brain injury in a Bellevue accident that leaves you unable to work.

Why You Should File a Social Security Disability Claim If You’re Eligible

While you consider your options it is important to remember that:

  • This is a benefit for which you’ve paid. Prior to your brain injury, you worked and contributed to the Social Security fund. While you may never have expected to file for Social Security disability, it is a protection for which you paid during your working years.
     
  • You may need the money. It can be difficult, if not impossible, to pay your rent or mortgage and to put food on the table without assistance if you are unable to work.
     
  • There is no shame in Social Security disability. You are not asking for a handout. You have earned the right to collect Social Security disability insurance and you should not hesitate to do so if you qualify.
