It is amazing how things have changed over the last few decades. Individuals have experienced great change in their personal and professional lives, including changes to their family and advancements in their personal careers. Society as a whole has also changed over the past few decades, including changes in the law that have impacted the lives of Georgia residents.
For example, as discussed recently in this blog, our country recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Many individuals have benefited from the ADA and continue to rely on its protections for those with a disability.
And yet, there are still significant challenges remaining for individuals with disabilities. One of the primary challenges disabled individuals face is the ability to earn an income to support themselves and their families. The disability, whether it be physical or mental in nature, can leave a person with an inability to work and earn the income that is needed to pay the bills.
Fortunately, these individuals may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits for injuries. In order to receive the disability benefits, however, individuals must be willing to pursue their claim for benefits, even in the face of adversity.
For instance, a benefits application is often denied by the Social Security Administration during its initial review. This can be discouraging for the disabled person, but it is far from the end of the road. The individual has the ability to appeal an adverse decision, which means the initial denial can be reversed and the individual may be awarded benefits after all.
