Georgia firm fighting for those with mental health conditions

A few weeks ago on the blog we discussed how individuals who suffer from mental illnesses can qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Although the Social Security Administration recognizes a number of mental illnesses, an individual must prove that he or she meets federal requirements before SSD benefits will be granted. Failing to do so will result in a denied claim, which could leave a disabled individual struggling financially, especially when their condition has left them unable to work. For this reason, those who suffer from some kind of mental condition need to consider how to present the best possible claim for initial inspection. And those who have had a claim denied need to know how to regroup and present stronger evidence for their appeal.

Compensation for service-related disabilities GA veterans suffer

This country's veterans have made some of the greatest sacrifices in service to our country. With this service and sacrifice can come lifelong medical issues like physical and mental disabilities that can leave veterans struggling to find or maintain a job. For veterans, there are a multitude of benefits available to them if they so need.

New Social Security commissioner to be named?

Millions of Americans depend on Social Security benefits in order to make ends meet. Many have very little, to no other source of income. So it is even more important that the Social Security administration has a strong and decisive leader. For the last four years or so, the Social Security Administration has been without a permanent commissioner due to a variety of factors.

The relationship between age, work injury and social security

Most Georgia residents will work full-time jobs the majority of their lives. A popular age to retire is often age 65. If an adult works full time from the age of adulthood, 18-years-old, until age of retirement, which is often 65, they will have worked 47 years. In those 47 years, it is very possible to assume that one may become injured, ill or otherwise unable to work. Some workers suffer injury or illness due to an incident or exposure at work and it can impact the rest of their lives.
