Social Security Disability Benefits for Illnesses Archives

Georgia firm fighting for those with mental health conditions

A few weeks ago on the blog we discussed how individuals who suffer from mental illnesses can qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Although the Social Security Administration recognizes a number of mental illnesses, an individual must prove that he or she meets federal requirements before SSD benefits will be granted. Failing to do so will result in a denied claim, which could leave a disabled individual struggling financially, especially when their condition has left them unable to work. For this reason, those who suffer from some kind of mental condition need to consider how to present the best possible claim for initial inspection. And those who have had a claim denied need to know how to regroup and present stronger evidence for their appeal.

Mental health can qualify for SSDI benefits for illness

Mental health diagnoses and treatment has come a long way in the last several decades. There was once a time when mental health issues were not even considered a medical illness. Thankfully, today there are medical diagnoses and treatments that can aid those suffering from mental illness. Just like with any illness, the ability to work when suffering from illness can be compromised.

Making the important decisions with disability benefits

Georgia residents make many important decisions over the course of their lives. Often, these decisions involve financial matters, including career choices, investments and other issues.

What must be shown to obtain disability benefits for seizures?

In the legal system, the law applies equally to every Georgia resident. However, individuals are situated differently from one another, and this change in circumstances among different people can result in differing results from case to case.

Are benefits available for those with seizure disorder?

There are few things more valuable to Georgia residents than their personal health. This is why a serious illness or injury can be so life-changing, because it can strike at the core of the person's everyday life.

What happens to SSD benefits upon retirement?

When Georgia residents encounter something new in their lives, it is natural to have many questions. The legal system is a prime example of this. Individuals encountering the legal system for the first time may not understand what is required of them or how they go about getting the relief they need.

Have your disability benefits been incorrectly denied?

One of the things Georgia residents value most in their lives is their personal health. When an individual's health declines, it can pose serious challenges, not only because of the direct impacts of the illness, but because of the secondary effects as well like the person's loss of income due to their inability to continue working.

Do you qualify for multiple kinds of disability benefits?

When Georgia residents need financial assistance, the last thing they want to do is jump through obstacles and navigate through a confusing patchwork of legal regulations. And yet, it can often seem as though that is what is necessary when a person applies for Social Security disability benefits.

Are disability benefits affected by other types of benefits?

As discussed last week in this blog, individuals may have tough decisions to make when an illness or injury prevents them from continuing to work. While Georgia residents may qualify for Social Security disability benefits for illness, those benefits can be impacted by other financial sources like retirement benefits.

What kinds of medical evidence will the SSA consider?

One of the most fundamental concepts involved in many legal cases is the presentation of evidence. Evidence can contribute to a successful legal claim for Georgia residents, as it substantiates the claim and proves that the person is entitled to what he or she requests.
