Many people in Georgia are facing hard times because an accident or illness has left them physically unable to work; in some cases for the rest of their lives. For these people, the financial burden can be overwhelming. Many turn to the Social Security Administration with the expectation that Social Security Disability will be there to help -- but such "security" may never come to fruition; a story that rings true all over the United States.
For one Massachusetts man, a claim for SSD benefits took nearly two years to happen (four times longer than the average claim) and the outcome was disheartening. The man had an accident at work, which left him unable to perform his duties as a truck driver any longer -- and soon thereafter his family stood to lose everything him and his wife of 26 years had worked for.
