Social Security Disability

If at first you don’t succeed in qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits, try, try again – that is what we at Tillman & Associates tell our clients. There is really no reason not to keep trying: We don’t collect a fee from you until you succeed in obtaining benefits.

Some people are embarrassed to apply for SSD (also called SSDI), but they shouldn’t be. Social Security Disability is an insurance program just like car or home insurance. You have been paying into SSD many years, every time you draw a paycheck. Most people never need the program, but seriously injured workers do. That’s how all insurance works.

And like other insurance plans, the insurer is often reluctant to pay out. The path to qualifying for benefits requires a knowledgeable SSD lawyer from a firm like Tillman & Associates and the patience to keep asking.

Attorney Burt Tillman assists injured Georgians to qualify for SSD and also for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). His experience is your best guard against a bureaucratic dead end. When you win final approval, these benefits will be yours:

  • Disability payments are almost always tax-free.
  • Annual cost of living increases often occur.
  • Two years after receiving SSD benefits, you will be eligible for Medicare as well.
  • You won’t be penalized in your retirement and disability benefits for lost earnings.
  • Members of your family may also be entitled to benefits.

Qualifying for SSD does not happen overnight, but it does happen. If you are disabled, we urge you to stay with the process and not give up. Your patience will probably be rewarded.
