There are many misconceptions and fears that people have in regards to the Social Security Administration. Myself included. Many people are under the impression that they will be unable to locate, or maintain employment, the myth is that benefits would disappear completely, which is not the case. People who are interested in seeking employment can still work and receive supplemental income as well. I am a firm believer that knowledge is power. In order to thoroughly understand something, one may need to first understand the history. The fallowing link will lead you to a video which talks about the history of The Social Security Administration. The history of the Social Security Administration. Once someone understands the history, they might start to feel a little more at ease about how the system functions. There are other resources that can further assist you with navigating the bridge between employment and Social Security. For example, Disability Benefits 101 can act as your vessel. It is going to be a difficult road, but with persistence and determination anything is possible. Please remember, never give up on yourself, or your dreams.
