Veterans who have suffered disabling conditions in service to the country may have options in terms of seeking disability benefits. People in San Diego may realize that the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs provides resources for many of our disabled vets. However, the Social Security Administration also is a possible resource for veterans who are disabled and cannot work due to a disabling condition.
Some commentators claim that workers across the country have been leaning on the Social Security disability insurance benefits program as some kind of proxy for unemployment when those benefits have been exhausted. Researchers at the Columbia Business School decided to look into that issue. Professors from the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of California, Berkeley participated in the recent research project.
