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.

Get My Payment | Internal Revenue Service

You can now find out when your next stimulus payment is expected to hit your bank account or be mailed.
The IRS updated the "Get My Payment" tool on its website with information on the third round of stimulus checks Saturday, agency spokesperson Karen Connelly confirmed to USA TODAY. Check for your status at www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment.
The third round of Economic Impact Payments will be based on a taxpayer’s latest processed tax return from either 2020 or 2019. That includes anyone who used the IRS non-filers tool last year, or submitted a special simplified tax return.

Use Get My Payment to get information about your payment status and payment type.

Educators and staff (Pre-K, K-12, DECAL licensed or exempt childcare programs).
Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their caregivers.
Intellectual Disability is a disability characterized by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior, which covers many everyday social and practical skills. This disability originates before the age of 22.
A developmental disability is a physical or mental impairment that happens before the age of 22, is expected to last a lifetime, and impacts at least three activities of daily living. Activities of daily living include self-care; receptive and expressive language; learning; mobility; self-direction; capacity for independent living; and economic self-sufficiency.
Parents of children with complex medical conditions who are at high risk for COVID complications:
Malignancies requiring active treatment
Immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) including organ transplant (bone marrow or solid organ) within 2 years
Critical congenital heart disease
Asthma (moderate to severe)
Sickle cell disease
Diabetes
Obesity (BMI >95%)
Cystic fibrosis
Significant neurologic injury or condition (e.g. hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, traumatic brain injury, congenital anomaly, acute flaccid myelitis) with functional/developmental impairment (e.g. cerebral palsy, developmental disability, prematurity, mitochondrial disease)
Technology dependence (e.g. BiPAP, trach).
