SSA death errors wreak financial, emotional havoc on living

A 52-year-old woman who received Social Security disability benefits for severe depression stopped receiving her checks because the agency declared that she was dead. Correcting the error cost her two months of benefits, closed her bank account and made her vulnerable to identity theft.

Terminally ill woman fears SSA decision will come too late

Here's a story that will tug at the heartstrings of readers in Douglasville: a 56-year-old mother and grandmother, whose $910 per month Social Security disability benefits cover half of her family's income, is fighting to keep her eligibility status. Social Security cancelled the woman's disability benefits, claiming a court judgment pushed the woman over the benefits' income limit.

Living with fibromyalgia

Imagine going to bed at night. You get in bed but can't fall asleep, or you fall asleep, but wake up throughout the night. When your alarm clock goes off the next morning, you're exhausted and your body aches. The aches do not go away. All day you're in pain. On top of that, you are extremely fatigued. You may have headaches, depression or irritable bowel syndrome. A simple change in weather or even high levels of stress worsens your body aches. Unfortunately, this is a daily experience for many Georgians who live with fibromyalgia.

Deficit-reduction plan to allocate more money for SSD reviews

The number of people receiving Social Security disability benefits has exploded in the recent years. Because of this and a lack of funding, the Social Security Administration has had a difficult time keeping up with annual reviews that ensure that everyone in Georgia and the rest of the country who is receiving benefits is eligible and should continue receiving benefits. Now, however, thanks to the recent deficit-reduction deal, the SSA could find itself with the resources needed to revive the review process.
