Will I be able to return to work?

Many amputees can return to their current jobs without any problems. Others may need to alter their duties within their profession or change jobs completely. It is important to talk with your employer about your desires and capabilities. If job alterations or changes are required, your local Vocational Rehabilitation representative can assist you in returning to the work force.

If your amputation and related health problems have disabled you to an extent that future employment is not possible, you may be eligible for disability-related benefits from the Social Security Administration.
