In an ideal world, people that are really disabled should be able to get quick access to medical care and disability benefits. Unfortunately, the Social Security Disability benefits system can be a long and convoluted process.

I love the tip to maintain a good relationship with the people working on your case. I actually feel like that’s a great tip for any situation, not just disability.

Even though I’m no to the age where I would need this, if I was, I would for sure get proper legal help. If I submitted a claim and was denied, I’d take legal action. There are probably people out there who do that but don’t do anything about it.
