Assets Under Management:
Social Security is the government orginazition responsible for the managemnt and administration of disability benefits. The web address is: https://www.ssa.gov/benefits/disability/
In addition to the government be sure to check with your employer regarding any insurance coverage they may also have had on your behalf. Both Short and Long Term benefits
may be available from some of there coverage. Personal insurance policies are something else to review there may be coverage as part of an older existing policy that's been overlooked.
Another thing to consider is if your disability is the result of a work related accident, an automobile accident or a situation where a third party may be held liable you may want to seek legal
counsel. Most legal professionals will offer a free consultation to help you determine if there's any course of action that may be available to you.
I would reccommend one of the many insured short term money market funds available at most financial institutions. By going with the insured money market fund you need not worry about the solvency of the financial institution holding the account. The funds are liquid and you'll avoid the stock market volitility risk.
As a general rule keeping three months of your monthly expenses
Should be kept in you checking account. The remainder could be deployed elsewhere depending on your specific situation.
