Seeking SSD benefits for a mental illness

Living with a disabling illness can be very troubling. The symptoms alone can be challenging to live with; however, for those living with a mental illness, it may not look on the outside like they actually are suffering from a disabling condition. This can present added troubles, as it can be difficult to maintain a normal life. This is where Social Security disability benefits for illness could be of assistance, as it could help individuals in Georgia and elsewhere meet their basic financial needs while they are unable to work because of a mental health condition.

How can veterans get SSD benefits for mental illness?

The courageous veterans fighting for our country may come home to Georgia with serious physical injuries and mental illness, including PTSD, depression, schizophrenia, and anxiety. Fortunately, many veterans are eligible for disability compensation through Veterans' Affairs (VA) or the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Helping you secure SSDI benefits for a disabling injury

When one is so severely injured that they are unable to work, this can create many additional issues in the individual's life. Georgia residents living with a disabling injury likely have more than their work life impacted. A disabling injury could also impact a person's ability to care for him or herself, do the physical activities they could prior to the injury and even meet his or her basic financial needs.

Establishing your medical condition and symptoms for SSD benefits

The most challenging part of a Social Security Disability claim can be proving to the Social Security Administration that your illness or impairment prevents you from working. The SSA approves many applications for Social Security disability benefits, but the reality is that a majority of claims are initially denied. These denials often stem from the claimant's inability to prove that their medical condition exists and is severe enough to negatively affect their ability to work.

SSD benefits available for minors who have lost a parent

Losing a parent can be one of the most difficult things you have to go through, particularly if you are a child. When a parent passes away, the child not only loses emotional support, but also financial support. Fortunately, Social Security disability benefits may be available to children in Georgia who lose an income-earning parent.

Is Compassionate Allowance SSD available for pancreatic cancer?

In many cases in which a Georgia resident is seeking Social Security disability benefits, the wait time is unavoidable as the Social Security Administration assesses the case and decides whether to approve or deny the claim. For some, their situation is so dire that they need to get the decision and the benefits in a more expedited way. Knowing when and how this can be done is critical to a case.

How does the national economy factor in with SSD benefits?

There are basic requirements for those who are seeking Social Security disability benefits. Georgia residents who claim their issues result in an inability to work must meet the criteria for Residual Functional Capacity and not being able to perform Substantial Gainful Activity. A key aspect of whether a person can work goes beyond their physical capabilities. The national economy and work that exists in it is an important part of a claim for SSD benefits and the assessment.
