Applying for disability benefits as a new parent

People lose their ability to work for various reasons, whether they are physical or mental in nature. Unfortunately, being disabled can make life incredibly hard from a financial point of view and from an emotional standpoint as well. For some people, such as those who have recently become a parent, these disabilities and the problems they create can be especially troubling. If you or your partner recently gave birth, it is very important to understand any resources that may be on the table if you are unable to work due to a disability.

As a parent, it is imperative to provide for your child and do what you can to ensure that you have the resources you need to raise them properly. Regrettably, disabilities can make this very challenging, if not impossible, and it is essential to examine any options that may be able to assist you through this difficult time. For example, if your partner is pregnant or recently gave birth and you were injured in a car crash or a workplace accident, you may want to explore disability benefits if you will not be able to return to your job (or work in any other capacity).

Life can be very stressful for new parents for a number of reasons, and a disability can lead to even more stress and uncertainty during this time. Some new parents have been able to work through these challenges and protect their financial future by applying for Social Security Disability and you may want to examine this option closer.
