Did you know that while Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are federal programs it is ultimately up to the state agency to decide if an applicant is eligible?
The Difference between SSD and SSI:
Social Security Disability depends on how many work credits you have earned. So you have had to work for a certain numbers of years in a job that you paid into social security taxes. You can earn up to four credits a year in some instances. It will depend on how old you are at the time of your disability as well.
Supplemental Security Income is if you have not worked long enough when you became disabled but also have a low income and assets.
In Georgia, 70% of initial applicants are denied. It takes Georgia an average of 365 days from the time you request an appeal hearing for the administrative law judge to make a decision.
The process can be just that and attorney John Foy would like to make it as easy and smooth a process as possible for you.
