Given the publicity around the Social Security Disability (SSD), it's surprising when an office closes. One would think that to address the highly publicized backlog of applications, the Social Security Administration would need as many offices as possible. H0owever, the rented office in West Augusta had recurring maintenance problems that the landlord failed to address.
A common question from people thinking about applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is whether those benefits are taxed as income by the IRS. As with any question dealing with government programs, the answer is, "It depends."
An article on the respected website WebMD outlines the most common causes of disabilities that leave people unable to work. These impairments force workers to retire early, seek Social Security Disability (SSD) payments, or file for benefits from their employer-provided disability insurance. Although workers have different options available to them, they share the same problem: An injury or illness has made it impossible to continue working.
