Georgia Social Security Disability Lawyer

If you live in Georgia

This page provides information useful to residents of the state of Georgia. Additionally, we include some information on Social Security offices in the capital, Atlanta, and some very useful information on free medical care throughout GA.

"Sweet as a peach" and loved by all, that's us Georgians. Corporate home for Coca Cola (Atlanta) and famous cities like Savannah and Macon keep us remembered by all. And if you've ever driven route 20 into Atlanta, you know we mean business. Our folks are hard workers and proud of it. We seek the American dream of a high quality life, a secure home environment and dreams of a better future. But when one of our numbers gets injured, either on the job, or in ways that prevent further employment, the dream can become a nightmare. The Social Security Administration was created to help citizens handle such difficulties. If you are injured and file successful claim, you will qualify for benefits that can change your life for the better. Learn as much as possible from this site, and contact your local SSA office (local Atlanta offices below).

Regardless of where in Georgia you reside, the consequences of a disability are much more than physical discomfort, medical care, loss of function. In addition to the stress of the disability itself, there is the financial strain when the cost of medical bills is added to everyday household expenses. Social Security disability benefits often provide the only way that many GA families are able to stay afloat. Learn your rights as a US citizen. The Social Security disability insurance benefits are available only to those who apply for them. Of course you must meet their standards and requirements, but everyone has the right to file a claim. If you are injured, one of the most important things to do is to file early. There are many claimants, and the wait can be significant. But be patient, keep good medical records, and learn as much as possible about the claims process. An attorney may be advisable if you are uncomfortable dealing with the bureaucracy, but is unnecessary. The important thing is to understand what claims are considered valid, and how to present the information in the best light. If you qualify, it is your right to claim the benefits that can help you weather this storm. Because of the large number of denials, it is very important to make a clearly documented claim that addresses every requirement filed in a timely manner. This last point is very important. Because of the large number of claims, there is a delay in processing new claims. Remember, you're dealing with the government here, so expect some bureaucratic hurdles in your way. So file early, and pay close attention to the requirements. Attention to details can make the difference between a denial and success claim.

In order to qualify, you need to prove to the government's satisfaction that you are truly disabled. But it is often a process that can be overwhelming and too much for the average person to handle on their own.

To start the social security disability (SSD) or supplemental security income (SSI) benefits application process, you have several options. You can apply in person at your local Georgia Social Security Administration office, you can call the national toll-free hotline or you can apply online at the SSA website. Your fourth option is to call a social security disability benefits advocate. While it isn't mandatory to have a disability benefits lawyer help you through every portion of the claims process, their knowledge of SSD and SSI regulations can assist you with avoiding much of the red tape involved in getting your case resolved successfully.
