What causes a disability?

A disability is caused by an accident or illness. The illness can be acute or chronic. Whether or not you're eligible to receive any benefits due to your disability depends on what kind of insurance coverage you have. If your disability is work-related, you may be entitled to workers comp benefits that your employer may have purchased. In most states, this is required. You may also be eligible for government benefits that you've paid for with income taxes. If your disability is not work-related, you still may be eligible for government benefits or you may purchased a personal disability insurance policy to pay you benefits. Whether you receive disability benefits from your own insurance policy or a government plan, the definition of disability contained in the policy will tell you what constitutes a disability. Did you mean to ask, what is the definition of disability? That can vary from policy to policy and, since that kind of insurance can be very complex, I would check for your particular policy.
