If you receive SSI benefits, when do you need to report changes?

The ability to receive Social Security benefits can be important for some Tennessee residents. In fact, some residents rely on these funds to meet their basic needs each and every month. Therefore, it is imperative for them to ensure that they continue to meet eligibility requirements and continually update their information. With regard to Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, a recipient is required to inform the Social Security Administration of any changes to his or her situation.

Proposed legislation may affect SSDI benefits

Disabled Tennessee residents may be interested to learn of recent bills introduced in Congress. The bills, one introduced by a Congressman and called the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Return to Work Act, as well as a mirror bill introduced by two Senators, may affect Social Security disability benefits.

Can victims of traumatic brain injuries receive SSDI benefits?

When a Tennessean suffers an injury, the best case scenario is that he or she will recover fully and quickly, and with as little medical intervention as possible. Unfortunately, however, that is not always the case, and some Tennesseans suffer injuries that leave them permanently disabled. One particularly damaging form of injury that can forever alter a person's life is a traumatic brain injury.

Attorneys aid veterans pursuing SSD claims

After serving in the Armed Forces, Tennessee veterans may emerge into unfamiliar territory. They may be used to serving overseas or being in a war zone and then return to their hometowns. They may be figuring out how to tackle a career change. They may be seriously injured and unable to work, or facing challenges in terms of their capabilities to work at the level at which they want to work, as this blog reported in a previous post.

SSA assesses income in determining SSI eligibility for children

A Tennessee family with a disabled child faces daily challenges. The child may require extensive medical care, as well as other potential accommodations due to the nature of his or her disability. Fortunately, for children who are disabled, there is help available in the form of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

Compassionate Allowances provide fast benefits for Tennesseans

Tennessee residents who go through the process of applying for Social Security Disability benefits undoubtedly have serious disabilities and need the help that Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits can provide. Of course, some Tennesseans' disabilities and illnesses are more severe than others. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has a process through which those who are suffering from the most severe disabilities or physical impairments can more quickly obtain benefits.
