"Fact: Every second, a worker in the U.S. becomes disabled. Then what?"

That is the question that Jon Arbay, Executive Director and founder of the National Association for Injured and Disabled Workers (NAIDW), found himself faced with after he suffered a disability that halted his career indefinitely.

It’s a situation that millions of disabled Americans suddenly find themselves in. Without the ability to go back to work, one of the only lights at the end of the financial tunnel might be the hope of Social Security benefits. But what can you do to help yourself if you experience a delay, or even a denial, of your benefits?

If you’re a member of the NAIDW, a national nonprofit that provides resources and support for disabled workers and their families, there’s a lot you can do. You can stay alert on news and issues that are critical to your condition, find support groups for yourself and youth programs for your children, apply for financial assistance, receive discounts on products and services from a community of professionals and specialists, connect with an entire online community of other disabled workers, and more.

At The Advocator Group, we support the work of the NAIDW. Since we work with claimants every day who are looking for additional support beyond Social Security Disability Insurance advocacy, we asked Jon to tell us more about the organization and his personal story that started it all.

Take a look at part one of our interview, where Jon introduces himself and the NAIDW.

Find out how you can get involved during part two of the interview.

Thanks again to Jon for taking the time to speak with us!
