Health Benefits

If you are determined to be eligible for SSD, you are also automatically approved for Medicare federal health benefits, after a 29 month waiting period beginning on the date SSA deems you disabled.  Likewise, Georgia residents who qualify for SSI because of low income, will automatically qualify for Georgia Medicaid (most other states have similar programs).  This makes it even more important to hire an attorney to win approval for SSD/ SSI.

If you have been denied benefits, you have the right to appeal the decision.  Claimants seeking Social Security Disability benefits or Social Security Disability appeals should seek legal guidance to prepare for the administrative hearings and to maneuver through the bureaucratic maze of paperwork. We represent the claimant at all levels of administrative appeals:

•Initial Application

•Reconsideration,

•Administrative Hearing at the – Office of Disability Adjudication and Review, (ODAR)

•The Appeals Council

•Federal Court
