Report: The financial and physical risks of dangerous jobs

Most people do not expect that they will suffer an injury or illness that will affect their ability to work. Of course there are some chronic or predictable conditions that people may struggle with on a regular basis, but a significant amount of workers may not believe that there will be a time when a mental or physical disability will make it impossible to work.

SSA announces some disabled veterans will get benefits faster

Being unable to work because of a physical or mental disability can be a very upsetting experience for people all across Atlanta. Not only can it be very difficult to cope with a serious illness or injury, but disabled workers can also be frustrated by the fact that they cannot earn a living. For many people in this situation, there is relief available through Social Security benefits. 

Social Security disability benefits and the waiting game

It is no secret that the Social Security disability benefits system in the U.S. is far from perfect. People all across Atlanta who have gone the through the application, denial and appeals processes know this first-hand. The fact is that people may not understand if they are eligible to receive these disability benefits for an illness or injury. And if they are eligible, it may not be clear how to file a claim. Even more frustrating is the fact that many claims are initially denied, which means that people then need to navigate the appeals process.

Do disability benefits help or hurt chances of returning to work?

Suffering from a mental disability is not always as easy to define as physical disabilities and conditions. Unlike a physical limitation, mental conditions can be difficult to test for, diagnose and treat. But just like physical disabilities, mental disabilities can similarly prevent a person from working and earning a living. Therefore, people who are struggling with these conditions may be eligible to receive assistance in the form of Social Security Disability benefits.
