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.

Changes coming to SSD benefits next year

Many Bremen residents rely on federal assistance due to a disability that prevents them from working. Those who do meet the requirements to collect Social Security Disability, or SSD benefits, will want to understand how a number of changes to the program in 2018 may impact them.

Social Security appeals are taking longer than usual

The trauma and stress that comes with disability is a difficult, life-altering and scary experience, especially considering the financial consequences of disability. This is why the government created social security disability benefits. Unfortunately, a person experiencing disability may have a claim denied. When a claim is denied, the aggrieved may file an appeal to challenge the denial. Recent news indicates that the appeal process may be more difficult than ever.

Are you eligible for Social Security Disability benefits?

Illness, injury, sickness and trauma can occur at almost any time, and when they do, the sick or injured often lose the ability to work and provide for their families. The inability to work can be devastating and disheartening. Thankfully, we have Social Security Disability to assist the injured and the sick in some circumstances.
