The wait for Social Security disability benefits can be very frustrating and very long. So while you wait for your disability case to make its way through the system, you should review your spending habits right now. Make a budget and spend smarter.
Unfortunately we have seen too many people suffer financial disasters like losing their savings, having their cars repossessed and even had their homes foreclosed on while they were waiting for benefits. Also bear in mind, that even when you win disability benefits they will not likely replace your previous paycheck. The average Social Security monthly disability check is $1,197.
Work on making permanent lifestyle changes and consider exploring community resources that may be able to financially help you with basic expenses.
