Is My Disability Preventing Me From Getting A Job?

The job market these days can be tough. This seems to especially be the case for people with disabilities, who according to a CBS MoneyWatch report, are having a lot of trouble landing jobs. So, if you have ever wondered if your disability could prevent you from getting a job, the answer may be a resounding yes.

Why Employers Aren’t Hiring People with Disabilities

Per the CBS MoneyWatch report, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) could be impacting employers’ decision to not hire people with disabilities. The reason for this is that the ADA requires employers to make their facility accessible for disabled employees, which can be very costly. In addition to facing this hurdle to getting hired, people with disabilities are often saddled with obstacles like transportation limitations and a lack of a higher education, which can limit their job prospects and cap their earnings.

How Can Social Security Help People with Disabilities Who Can’t Find Work?

As Tulsa disability benefits lawyer Steve Troutman talks about in the video below, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are designed to help people with disabilities who cannot work.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
