If you or a family member is currently having a difficult time working or attending to day-to-day personal activities due to a physical illness, mental illness or injury the issue of financial resources and support (in addition to the primary concern of getting well) is almost certainly a major concern. Faced with this unfortunate situation, you need to know your legal rights and to inform yourself about the Social Security Disability benefits that may be available.
