Disabilities can impact different individuals in different ways. While one person may suffer from a permanent physical ailment that limits their capacity to move, another may suffer from a mental illness that prevents them from successfully interacting with other individuals. California residents who suffer from disabilities may be able to secure disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.
The Social Security Administration does offer disabled individuals opportunities to find gainful employment that accommodates their physical, mental and emotional needs. The Ticket to Work program exists to help men and women who receive disability benefits with finding job training and placement services that may help them work toward self-sufficiency.
