Helping apply for and secure SSD benefits

Unfortunate events can befall anyone at any moment. While it is possible to overcome these downfalls, others can result in more permanent challenges. A sudden injury or onset of an illness could limit individuals in Georgia and elsewhere. In some cases, these limitations could make it impossible to obtain or maintain a job. The inability to work can present many challenges for individuals. It can be nearly impossible to meet basic living needs without a steady income. This is where it could be extremely beneficial to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD).

How do you prove the inability to work for SSD benefits?

No matter one's age, living with a disability is challenging. While some individuals in Georgia and elsewhere are able to utilize accommodations and resources to help them live a normal life, others are unable to do so because of the severity of the disability and how the disability specifically impacts his or her life. Being unable to work can significantly impact the life of individuals, causing it to be necessary to seek Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.

Can you receive SSD benefits when you work abroad?

Nowadays, it is common for workers in Georgia and elsewhere to take on work outside of their state, even outside of the country. While this opens a person up to a work of opportunities, working abroad for a multi-national corporation could have its setbacks. What if you are injured while you are working in a different country? What is this injury causes you to suffer a disability?

Can I receive SSD benefits for a mental health disorder? (Part 2)

We'll follow up our recent discussion on benefits for mental health impairments with a look at how these disorders are assessed. The information is intended to be general in nature only and not specific legal advice for anyone seeking support.

Can I receive SSD benefits for a mental health disorder? (Part 1)

A disabling mental condition, as many Bremen residents can attest, can be as much a barrier to employment as a physical one. Indeed, sometimes it may prove even more of a barrier, as workplaces are often able (and even required) to offer accommodations for physical disabilities to a greater extent than they are for mental health issues.

Backlog for SSD benefits devastating for applicants

Social Security Disability Insurance is a federal program that offers financial assistance to workers in Georgia - and across the country - who have sustained an injury or illness that has led to an inability to work. The funding for SSDI benefits comes from the withholding that workers have been paying throughout their careers. But, a backlogged system has prevented thousands of applicants from getting the assistance they need and have paid for.

Denied Social Security: the basics of filing an appeal (Part 3)

We'll continue our discussion of the disability claims process with a look at what can happen after an initial appeal, or reconsideration, is denied. The information is intended to be general in nature only, and not as specific legal advice for any Bremen resident's individual situation.

Guiding you through the SSD application process

We all like to plan and prepare for the future, but the reality is that we cannot always prepare for everything life throws at us. We cannot predict whether or not we will suffer a serious injury or illness. And we certainly cannot expect that these injuries or illnesses could be debilitating. Nonetheless, many individuals in Georgia and other states across the nation face this unfortunate reality. Additionally, the injury or illness they are currently suffering has become so disabling that he or she is unable to work. This can take a huge toll on the individual financially as well as physically, mentally and emotionally.

Denied Social Security: the basics of filing an appeal (Part 2)

When the Social Security Administration denies a claim for benefits -- something most applicants will experience at least once -- an appeal is the next step. Once a Bremen resident has gathered medical documentation to support the contention that Social Security Disability benefits were denied incorrectly, it's time to submit the appeal.

Denied Social Security: the basics of filing an appeal (Part 1)

Recently we spent some time on our blog discussing disabled individuals' eligibility for federal assistance. The criteria generally have to do with one's inability to work. However, when an initial application for Social Security Disability has been submitted, there is a strong chance it will be denied. Most applications are denied at least once. We'll take some time over the next few blog posts to help our Bremen readers understand why claims get denied, and what they can do about it. This is intended as general information only, and not specific legal advice.
