You can get a sense of peace and stability back in your life—once you have answers about the financial support that is available in a stressful time.

Just about any health problem can give you Social Security Disability eligibility if it is severe enough that you cannot work.
That includes physical and mental conditions—and conditions that do not always stop people from working when they have a milder case.

The kind of disability benefits you receive also depends on your work and financial situation.
