Private insurance not viable fix for SSDI

The highly-publicized struggles of the Social Security Administration - due largely to budget woes - have drawn the attention of Congress, but not entirely in the way the agency might have hoped. Expanding retirement rolls and burgeoning claims for Social Security Disability Insurance have strained the agency's resources to such an extent that it is no longer keeping up. In fact, thousands of people have died while waiting to hear whether they qualified for SSD benefits.

SSA needs more funding to help Georgia SSDI claimants

The resources of the Social Security Administration have been under considerable strain in recent years. Such pressures have had a deleterious effect on the SSA's ability to deliver the services that fall under its purview to claimants and retirees - in Georgia and beyond. The SSA's struggles have been noted not only by the press but also by government watchdog agencies such as the Government Accounting Office, as well as Congress.

Is SSDI different from Georgia workers' compensation?

In Georgia, when a employee is injured at their place of work, while they are performing the duties of their job, the worker usually must rely on the state's workers' compensation system for medical and financial assistance. However, if the injuries prevent the worker from returning for a long period of time or impair one's ability to work at all, they may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

Veterans Affairs in turmoil in wake of Shulkin departure

The Department of Veterans' Affairs is the second largest agency in the United States government. The VA administers the programs that deliver veterans' benefits, like health care, companion benefits and financial assistance to those who offered their service to the nation. Unfortunately, the VA has experienced a considerable amount of controversy as of late, some of which was attributable to now-former VA Secretary David Shulkin.
