One of the things Georgia residents value most in their lives is their personal health. When an individual's health declines, it can pose serious challenges, not only because of the direct impacts of the illness, but because of the secondary effects as well like the person's loss of income due to their inability to continue working.
By the same token, an improvement in health is generally seen of as a positive thing. But this may not always be the case, at least when a slight improvement in health threatens a person's ability to continue receiving Social Security disability benefits.
As discussed last week in this blog, a person receiving disability benefits is subject to periodic reviews in order to determine whether the individual is still eligible to receive those benefits. There are different factors impacting the person's continued eligibility, including one factor that looks at whether the person's medication condition has improved to the point where they are no longer considered to have a disability. As a result, the person's SSD benefits may be terminated by the agency.
Our firm understands how important disability benefits are to our clients. We help individuals not only when they are first applying for disability benefits, but also those individuals who have had their benefits terminated after a review by the agency. In both cases, we work closely with our clients to determine whether they are eligible for benefits, and whether the agency has acted improperly by denying them benefits.
