Why multiple assessments are needed to determine disability

The amount of Social Security Disability benefits a person is eligible to receive depends in part on how much their ability to function has been impacted by their injury or illness There are a number of tests that can be used to assess people's work-related functions (both physical and mental).

Can you get disability benefits if you don't even have a doctor?

One of the frequent dilemmas faced by people who have little-to-no income is that they also lack the resources to obtain appropriate medical care for their treatment. Even if they can afford a doctor's visit or manage to see a doctor through a community-funded clinic, they may not be able to afford the therapy or medication that the doctor prescribes.

Study: Contingent workers less likely to seek disability benefits

Contingent workers make up an ever-increasing portion of the American workforce. These include independent contractors with advanced degrees who work for a variety of clients over their career rather than as an employee with one company. They also include people who make their living in the "gig" economy -- driving for Uber and Lyft, delivering for GrubHub and DoorDash or doing odd jobs through TaskRabbit and Takl.
