Social Worker Disability Claims
Talk with the Long-Term Disability Lawyers
A social worker has the responsibility to provide much needed moral support to children and families who are struggling with day-to-day problems and stress. They are also called upon to be there for children in potential danger of domestic violence or neglect. In order to be an effective and trusted social worker, a great deal of insight, focus, and compassion are needed – and they must be unwavering, as families rely on them to do the right thing at all times. When all the career responsibilities of a social worker are considered together, each day can be emotionally taxing to the point of triggering severe anxieties.

Potential Health Problems Suffered by Social Workers
On a quiet day, a social worker may spend long hours at a computer in an office setting. There are a large number of health problems that can occur due to extended time spent sitting at and using a computer. On a busy day, a social worker can encounter an entirely different set of stressors and issues, as they may be called out to the field to work with, console, or protect a family. All of these situations can contribute to injuries or illnesses that make regular work impossible to complete without unreasonable discomfort.
Some medical conditions and health problems associated with social work are:
- Back pain
- Chronic pain, soreness, and exhaustion
- Vision loss and eyestrain
- Mental health complications and concerns
You can be eligible for long-term disability benefits whether or not your injury or illness was caused directly through your employment. As long as you are debilitated to the point that you cannot complete expected work duties, you may have the right to collect disability benefits to some degree. The same is even true if you are a self-employed social worker who is independently contracted through various agencies or groups when your services are needed.
