Recommended Resources: Disability and Social Security

by

Social Security Administration's Disability section of their blog

Here in the U.S., many of us receive benefits like medical insurance from our jobs. However, these can sometimes be insufficient or have gaps when it comes to disabilities. Social Security’s disability benefits can provide or supplement for students and/or employees with disabilities.

SSA Disability Blog

The disability section of the Social Security Administration (SSA) blog publishes information pertaining to Social Security benefits and policies regarding disabilities. Article topics range from benefits for specific disabilities, diseases, and conditions, to common questions, to program updates and changes. The blog also includes subjects about disabilities more broadly, including information and resources on rights, accommodations, financial literacy, and additional programs outside of Social Security that can help people with disabilities. Readers can subscribe to the SSA newsletter; connect with the SSA via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and LinkedIn; access the SSA’s online services; and easily navigate to other SSA resources beyond disability.
