In order to get the complete picture, it is often necessary for Georgia residents to take a step back and look at a situation from a broader view. This is particularly true with financial issues, as it can be misleading to only focus on one specific source of income or one expense when it comes to assessing one’s finances. Instead, it is helpful to look at the broad picture of all revenues and expenses the person has to get a better view.
Last week, this blog discussed how different kinds of benefits can impact a person’s Social Security disability benefits. For instance, workers’ compensation benefits and other public disability benefits typically reduce the amount of Social Security disability benefits a person is eligible for. Other kinds of benefits will not impact the disability benefits.
Accordingly, when a person is trying to determine what their financial situation will be like in the absence of a regular income from work, the individual needs to understand not only how much they will receive from Social Security disability benefits, but what other kinds of benefits they may have that will impact the SSD benefits.
