Those who are struggling with a disability may face a wide variety of hardships, regardless of the nature of their limitations. For example, they may experience physical pain, emotional issues such as depression or anxiety over their circumstances, and financial problems brought on by missing work. For some of these people, Social Security Disability is an excellent way to help restore some sense of normalcy in daily life, which can be crucial for those who no longer have the ability to earn an income due to their disability.
