Social Security Disability in Atlanta

Receiving Disability Insurance in Atlanta

In This Section:


Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in Atlanta will pay monthly cash payments to disabled individuals who are unable to work for at least 12 continuous months due to a severe mental or physical impairment. Additionally, they must have worked and paid enough payroll taxes to accrue enough "work credits" to qualify for SSDI in Atlanta.

The Social Security Disability Insurance benefits can continue as long as the individual is considered disabled or until their full retirement aged, when their SSDI Atlanta benefits are converted to retirement benefits.

Atlanta Social Security Disability Insurance can also be paid to the dependents of a SSDI claimant including widows, children, widowers, and disabled adults, if they were disabled before they turned 22. SSDI claimants may also receive Medicare coverage 24 months after the onset date of disability.

What if a claimant does not have sufficient work credits to qualify for SSDI in Atlanta, but they are unable to work? Supplemental Security Income (SSI) was created by the Social Security Administration to provide basic material needs for low income and disabled individuals. Individuals may have up to $2000 in resources and income and couples $3000. SSI in Atlanta is for the aged, (65 years or older), the blind or the disabled. Atlanta SSI may also provide claimants with Medicaid at the time of their approval.
