The face of progeria and the quest for a cure

We have previously spoken about how disability benefits are not just for adults. Supplemental Security Income benefits can help both adults who are unable to work and children with severe disabilities. There are people throughout Georgia who are otherwise ineligible for disability benefits through Social Security disability insurance because they have never been able to pay into Social Security, so they turn to Supplemental Security Income. These benefits are based purely on disability, not on an individual's work history, which is also the reason why children are eligible.

Television program gets the disability benefits program all wrong

Many people in Atlanta look to news programming as a source of credible information. There are, of course, some programs that command a little less respect than they should, but "60 Minutes" is generally regarded as honest and informative. For disability service providers, however, a recent episode on disability benefits has been criticized as misleading.

Television characters with disabilities double this year

It may seem an odd way to measure tolerance, but who appears on television shows is an important reflection of American society. Television has suffered for years from portraying very few types of characters; most characters were white, able-bodied and heterosexual. As any avid television watcher in Atlanta can tell you, however, those characters are slowly being replaced by a much more diverse group.

Veteran's disability pay and pensions for November on the line

In our previous posts we wrote about the impact the government shutdown is having on individuals who receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. Though those individuals should continue to receive those benefits as usual, the same may not be said of our nation’s veterans.

Will disability payments be coming during the shutdown?

Anyone receiving disability beneits in Peachtree City may have questions about their disability payments in light of the government shutdown. The most important thing to know, however, is that Social Security disability benefits will continue to be given out and given out on time. This is important, as for most Georgians on disability benefits, these government funds are the only source of income they have.
