You may be able to work while receiving disability benefits

If a Georgian has an injury or illness keeping them out of work, they may receive Social Security Disability benefits for financial support. Many people worry that once they start receiving benefits, they must stay out of the workforce forever. However, applying for these benefits does not mean that one must stop working long-term. In fact, the disability benefits program is designed to help recipients get back to work, once medically able.

My claim for disability benefits was denied. What should I do?

Hundreds of Georgia residents file for disability benefits each year, but unfortunately, many of these claims are denied. Claimants who have been denied often give up on the idea of receiving Social Security Disability benefits and accept the Social Security Administration's decision. However, this is a huge mistake, as many claimants who appeal their denials end up receiving the disability benefits they deserve.

What evidence does my examiner need to review my claim?

Many Georgia residents suffer from injuries or illnesses that interfere with their ability to work. Fortunately, many people receive Social Security Disability benefits by qualifying under the criteria in the Social Security Administration's "Listing of Impairments" or based on the medical-vocational guidelines.

New updates for Georgia veterans

Veterans in Georgia and throughout the United States saw a lot of changes occur at the Department of Veterans Affairs and in Congress over the past couple of weeks. While their ultimate effect on veterans benefits and services remains to be seen, the changes represent movement in a bureaucracy often known for its glacial swiftness. The hope is that more veterans will ultimately receive the services and benefits they need more quickly and efficiently.
