How does the SSA define 'disability'?

With so many physical and mental disabilities affecting Georgia residents, it can be difficult to discern which ones qualify a person for Social Security disability benefits. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration has clear criteria to determine whether someone's injury or illness meets their definition of 'disability.'

What are the differences between SSI and SSD benefits?

People in Fayetteville who are considering applying for disability benefits may have come across two programs: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). They should know that these programs are both overseen by the Social Security Administration, but each have their own set of requirements to qualify for benefits.

Our attorneys are available to assist with your disability claim

In an ideal world, all of us would be physically and mentally able to work until we decided it was time to retire. In the real world however, many people's careers are cut short due to unexpected injuries. Some of these injuries are so severe that the employees are never able to return to the jobs they used to have.

Am I entitled to my deceased spouse's Social Security benefits?

Losing your spouse can be one of the most difficult things you ever have to go through. In additional to the emotional devastation, many people in Georgia whose spouses have passed away find themselves struggling to support themselves and their families financially. According to the Social Security Administration, you may be entitled to survivor's benefits based on your deceased spouse's Social Security record, which may ease some of your financial burdens as you go through the grieving process.

Applying for SSD benefits as a veteran

When one thinks of a veteran, the word "hero" comes to mind. Veterans have made great efforts to protect our country and some suffered devastating injuries in the process. Veterans may receive benefits for their service, but in many cases, these benefits are not nearly enough . Fortunately, Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits may be available to those who have suffered war-related injuries. The Social Security program is separate from the VA disability compensation program, so any VA compensation does not affect SSD benefits.
