Living with a disability is tough whether a person was born with a disabling condition or acquired one later in life. It can be a growing struggle to go through medical treatments and attempt to accommodate one's life so they can live a normal life. In some cases, it is extremely challenging to live a normal life, as they cannot care for him or herself and even hold down a job. This is not only mentally and emotionally difficult but also creates financial struggles because they do not have the income to pay for their basic needs. This is where Social Security disability benefits can be extremely valuable.
