Receiving SSI State of Georgia Disability benefits under federal disability laws
The federal government has created two programs that provide money to those unable to work due to injury or disability—the Social Security Disability Income Program (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income Program (SSI). Although the goals are similar for both programs, there are significant differences in their requirements and processes.
More importantly, the process for obtaining benefits is incredibly complex. Almost all cases require the submission of a large amount of paperwork. These include medical records, work histories, income and asset reports, and other important information. And there are critical judgments to be made with respect to what will help and hurt a claimant's chance of success.

There are also a number of government employees involved in the benefit determination, including a Claims Examiner, Medical Consultant and Administrative Law Judge. Knowing how to work with these important members of the process is often the difference between benefits earned and denied. It can also affect how fast the money is deposited into a recipient's bank account.
