When Georgia residents need financial assistance, the last thing they want to do is jump through obstacles and navigate through a confusing patchwork of legal regulations. And yet, it can often seem as though that is what is necessary when a person applies for Social Security disability benefits.
Take, for instance, the recent discussion on this blog regarding the interaction between different kinds of benefits. If a person receives disability benefits under certain state law programs, it can influence the person’s ability to receive Social Security disability benefits. This can come as a surprise to some when they receive notice of a denied claim or when they receive notice that their benefits are not as high as they anticipated.
Fortunately, this is not the case with all benefits. For example, a person can qualify for veterans disability benefits at the same time they receive Social Security benefits. However, each program has different eligibility requirements that must be satisfied in order to qualify for the different kinds of benefits. Accordingly, it is essential that individuals applying for benefits understand how disability benefits work under the federal regulations.
