What is the Ticket to Work program?

Many people assume that if you are approved for Social Security Disability benefits, you can no longer work unless you give up your benefits. However, this is not always the case. The SSA has implemented a free, voluntary "Ticket to Work" program to encourage people receiving Social Security benefits to try re-entering the workforce and pursue their career goals, while continuing to receive benefits.

Receiving SSD benefits for chronic migraines

Thousands of people in the United States suffer from debilitating migraines, making it impossible for them to get through a full day of work. As a result, many people with chronic migraines apply for Social Security Disability benefits. While migraines can qualify a person for disability benefits under Section 11 of the SSA's Blue Book of Impairments, many people with migraines have their applications for benefits denied.

Will my other public benefits affect my SSD benefits?

Every year, thousands of working Americans suffer serious personal injuries as a result of an unexpected workplace accident. Workers are also at risk for an occupational disease, that occur after years of exposure to workplace hazards, including radiation, mold, pesticides, gases, and chemicals. Workplace-related injuries and illnesses may prevent workers from working. Without a source of income, many sick and injured workers end up struggling financially, as well as physically and emotionally.

Can you work and receive SSD benefits?

Living with a serious medical condition can present certain challenges. Whether a person is suffering from a disability due to a condition that person was born with, an illness acquired later in life or an injury that occurred at some point in life, the reality is that living with a disability can impact a person's life in many ways. One area is work. The inability to work or make a livable income can present financial hardships, which is why many people seek Social Security Disability benefits.

How many work credits do I need to qualify for SSD benefits?

Generally, you must have a medical condition or injury that prevents you from working in order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits. However, not all Georgia residents with a serious disability will qualify for benefits under the SSD insurance program. Before you apply for disability benefits, you will need to make sure you have the correct number of work credits needed.

The reasons Social Security Disability benefits come to an end

A disability can occur very unexpectedly. Whether it is due to a medical condition or injury, adjusting to life with a disabling condition can be challenging. Even when individuals in Georgia and elsewhere are able to obtain accommodations to make living with a disability easier, the reality is that many Americans face financial hardship because they are no longer able to work or make a decent living due to the disability.

What factors could lead to the end of your SSD benefits?

Once your application for Social Security Disability benefits has been approved, you should start receiving benefits on a monthly basis. However, SSD recipients shouldn't get too comfortable once their benefits start coming in. There are many factors that can cause SSD benefits to end, including retirement benefits, returning to work, or no longer being classified as disabled.

What is the appeal process after an SSD denial?

Living with a disability can be challenging for those in Georgia and elsewhere. Whether one was born with a medical condition or suffered a disabling injury or illness later in life, the reality is that a disability can impact one's life in ways that are out of one's control. Take working for example. A condition could be severe enough that it makes it impossible to work. This then causes much economic hardship for the individual. In order to help offset the financial harm caused by this, Social Security disability benefits are available. Unfortunately, applying for these benefits does not mean an automatic approval. In fact, many initial applicants are denied.

Maximizing Social Security disability benefits

If you are one of the 61 million adults in the United States that suffer from a disability, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. The SSA will essentially enter your past work earnings and Social Security earnings into a formula to calculate the amount of SSDI benefits you will receive.
