‘Tis the season for a lot of things during the month of December. Holiday cheer, bright, sparkly lights and the sense of wonder all surround the month of December. However, it may have a much more personal significance for you if you are disabled.
If you are disabled, you most likely cannot work and/or enjoy all that the holidays have to offer you. According to WebMD there are six main causes of long term disability.
- Arthritis and other musculoskeletal problems
- Back Pain and other muscle and joint problems
- Heart Disease which can be linked to diabetes
- Cancer – the fastest-growing cause for disability claims
- Depression or other mental health issues
- Diabetes along with obesity
Did you know that if you are disabled you are not only potentially eligible for long term disability insurance, but you also may be eligible for Social Security benefits as well?
