Georgia residents have vastly different family circumstances from one another. The different family dynamics not only make each family unique, it can have a large impact when it comes to legal issues involving a person's family.
When Georgia residents are approaching an important decision, it is vital to have all of the information available to help make that decision. This is the case when it comes to Social Security disability benefits, both for the individual applying for benefits and the Social Security Administration in examining the individual's application.
Many Georgia residents work very hard to provide for themselves and their family members. Indeed, many Georgia families depend on each other for all kinds of support, including financial support.
Many Georgia residents likely know a family that's been affected by autism. According to the non-profit organization Autism Speaks, an estimated two million men, women and children in the U.S. have been diagnosed as having some form of autism. However, despite the prevalence of the mental disorder, scientists have yet to definitively determine its cause, although both genetic and environmental factors are believed to play a role.
An adult or child may be rendered disabled for a number of reasons. Some children are born with genetic conditions that may affect them physically or mentally. Others may become disabled later in life as the result of a work or car accident in which an individual suffer a traumatic brain injury or spinal injury. In other cases, a serious illness or medical condition such as cancer, an autoimmune disease or mental illness may also result in an individual becoming disabled.
