Can I apply for Social Security benefits or any other progams while I am out of work? Has anyone else gone thru this same situation? If so, please give me any advice. Thanks :)

i assume your work does not offer short term disability? that is the route we have gone when we had surgeries that kept us out of work.

I have no idea about social security or disability benefits. However, if you are benefits-eligible at your job, they may have some sort of short-term disability policy or FMLA....something like that. I know our company provides a short-term disability policy for each employee for cases like that. I'm not much help. Good luck to you!

I 2nd the short-term disability.  I would check with your HR dept. and see what they can do for you.  Even if they don't offer it, they would likely be able to point you in the right direction for other services.

If you live in California, you get short term diability.
