To qualify for SSDI, you must have paid enough in Social Security taxes and earned enough credits to be covered by the program. In general, that usually means having worked 5 years full-time out of the last 10 years. SSI does not depend on your work history and is needs-based, so you must have limited income and financial resources, including assets. Please contact us for further information or assistance.

Important Changes to Unemployment Benefits
The state of Georgia is one of 21 states planning to opt out of the federally-funded unemployment programs. Last week, Governor Brian Kemp and State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler announced that effective June 26, 2021, Georgia will no longer participate in federal pandemic unemployment programs. As a result, the following unemployment benefits will no longer be available:

1) Federal Pandemic Unemployment compensation, which provides for an additional $300 weekly payment to recipients of unemployment compensation;
2) Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, which provides benefits for those who would not usually qualify, such as the self-employed, gig workers, and part-time workers;
3) Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, which provides for an extension of benefits once regular benefits have been exhausted;
4) Mixed Earner Unemployment Compensation, which provides an additional $100 benefit to certain people with mixed earnings.

Once the federal benefits are no longer available, the Department of Labor will continue offering regular state unemployment insurance benefits to eligible Georgians. The maximum weekly benefit is $365. For more information on unemployment benefits, please visit www.dol.georgia.gov.

Burgess & Christensen Honors Women's History Month~
Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28, which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.
