    Could You Use a Financial Lifeline?

    You can find a path back to stability when health problems derail your work life and leave your personal budget a mess.

    Social Security Disability benefits are a way to stop the financial bleeding.

    In addition to monthly income support, benefits help you get the medical care you need. Benefits last until you recover enough to return to work—or all the way to retirement age if needed.

    But there aren’t any guarantees you’ll be approved. Social Security denies the vast majority of people who apply.

    You can get highly successful disability attorneys to reinforce your claim. With the Georgia Social Security lawyers at Silver & Archibald, you get:

    • The largest Georgia-based disability law firm by amount of benefits secured for people.
    • The advantage of a local, Georgia law firm that knows local medical providers, Social Security offices and disability judges.
    • The knowledge that highly experienced and capable people are making sure your needs are getting heard.

    You never pay a disability attorney fee until you win benefits.

    What Are the Two Major Types of Social Security Disability Benefits?

    Social Security runs two disability benefits programs. They cover people with different work backgrounds and financial situations. What they have in common is that you must be unable to work, because of health problems, to qualify.

    Most often, you’ll only receive one or the other of the two types of benefits:

    • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). This is an insurance plan you paid into with Social Security taxes from every paycheck. It’s economic protection for people who worked but can’t work anymore. It doesn’t matter how much you have in savings, property, or other household income. SSDI pays monthly benefits calculated in part using your past income. You also get access to Medicare health coverage, after a waiting period, even when you’re not the usual age to qualify for Medicare.
    • Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This is economic aid for people who haven’t been able to work much or for a long time—so you may not have paid enough in Social Security taxes for SSDI. To get SSI, you also can’t have too much in savings or other financial resources. Social Security sets the monthly amounts the same for everyone. When you qualify for SSI, you also automatically qualify for health care through Medicaid.

    At any step in the process, and for any kind of Social Security Disability benefits, let Silver & Archibald help you restore a sense of peace in your life.
