What are income and resource limits for SSI benefits?

Tennessee residents who fall under a certain level for income and resources and are blind or disabled might be able to obtain Supplemental Security Income. This is part of the Social Security disability program provided by the government. The Social Security Administration oversees it, and there are certain criteria that must be met before an applicant can be approved for SSI. Knowing the rules for income and resources is thus key before applying for SSI.

What if I need a special exam to keep my SSD benefits?

Tennesseans who are seeking benefits through the Social Security disability program are often unaware of certain requirements that must be met. One is that there might be a need for a special examination for a final decision to be made. This applies for both Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Income. When there is a disability application, the Disability Determination Services will review it. But, if it is necessary to garner more information before making a decision, a special examination might be required.

Understanding when there might be an SSD benefits review

Tennessee residents who receive Social Security disability might feel a certain amount of relief when they are approved. It is easy to come to the conclusion that there are no more worries about receiving SSD benefits. However, the reality is that those who are receiving Supplemental Security Income or Social Security disability will have their situation reviewed so the Social Security Administration can make sure the benefits are still necessary.

Can Social Security disability benefits for veterans be sped up?

When a resident of Tennessee is suffering from war-related injuries and is unable to work, it might be a concern not just whether or not they will be awarded Social Security disability benefits, but how long they will have to wait to receive them. Some might not be aware that there is a program for the awarding of benefits to be sped up - otherwise referred to as expedited processing - provided they have a rating of 100 percent Permanent and Total disability. Understanding how this can be done is key for those who warrant it.
