Description

NAIDW is a nationally recognized 501 (c) (3) nonprofit charitable foundation where injured and disabled workers and their families find the resources and support they need to reclaim their lives. We use grant-based funding and charitable donations to improve the lives of injured & disabled workers and their families.

NAIDW’s purpose is to provide unlimited resources, support, guidance and short-term financial assistance to injured & disabled workers and their families as a result of injury, illness, pain or disability. Best of all, an NAIDW membership is absolutely free for all injured & disabled workers and their families. 100% of all donation funds are put directly to work for those who need it most.

The Reality’s of Injury, Illness, Pain and Disability

Did you know that, every second, a worker is injured in the United States--a country where most families live paycheck to paycheck? In fact, 50% of all home foreclosures occur as a result of income loss after disability. Yet, Workmens’ Compensation benefits only pay 66% of your lost income, which might not be so bad if you are one of the lucky ones who’s claim is not being disputed and denied! And if that wasen’t bad enough, social security disability benefits only pay about 33% of your lost income. And as if that weren’t hard enough, these vital benefits are denied to injured & disabled workers over 60% of the time.

What’s more is that injury, illness, pain and disability doesn’t just affect income; it damages relationships within families and drains the joy from our lives. The physical and emotional effects of this stress and isolation lead to depression and mental illness. With no way to earn a living, and no support for our cause, how are we expected to survive?

The world looks down on people who have been injured or disabled, assuming that we are lazy, or taking advantage of the system. Insurance companies have shaped this stigma through decades of similar claims. As a result, injured or disabled people feel completely alone.

Join NAIDW and start the process of recovery. We know what you’re going through and what you need to pull through, because we are injured & disabled workers ourselves. Get the help and information you need to put the pieces of your life back together. Through the community of vital support and resources, you can take a step toward change.
