Managing Traumatic Stress: Tips for Recovering From Disasters and Other Traumatic Events from the American Psychological Association

Perhaps you experienced a flood, hurricane or earthquake. Or maybe you have been in a serious accident or the victim of crime. Traumatic experiences such as these tend to be sudden and overwhelming. In some cases, there are no outwardly visible signs of physical injury, but there is nonetheless a serious emotional toll. It is common for people who have experienced traumatic situations to have very strong emotional reactions. Understanding normal responses to these abnormal events can aid you in coping effectively with your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, and help you along the path to recovery.

Social Security Administration Disability and Survivor Benefits Planners

It's hard to think about disability or the loss of a loved one, but if a tragedy befell your family, it would be very helpful to know whether Social Security can help ease the burden. The Social Security Administration has provided these online calculators with explanations of how you and your family may qualify for benefits in case someone becomes disabled. You can also learn about Survivors Benefits from two sides: first, how your family is protected when a family member dies, and second, how you yourself may qualify as a survivor on someone else's Social Security record (especially important for young families with children).
