Texas Social Security Disability Lawyer

If you live in Texas

This page provides information useful to residents of the state of Texas. Additionally, we include some information on Social Security offices in the capital, Austin, and some very useful information on free medical care throughout TX.

Texas is the home of the cowboy, the oil industry, and modern cities like Houston, Austin, Dallas, and Fort Worth. With a population rank of 2, we've got a lot of Texans here, folks. And from the ranches, to the cities, to the oil rigs, we've got the gung ho workers that America is proud of. Texans work for what they have - a good life, solid jobs, and a prosperous future. Except when a worker gets injured. When someone can no longer earn a wage, all the good stuff flies out the window along with the job and the healthy body. The disability insurance program offered by the Social Security Administration is an attempt to deal with the difficulties encountered by the disabled. We urge any injured party who can no longer work to learn about this program from this website, to contact their local SSA office (Austin local offices listed on this page), and learn about the specific requirements put to applicants. It is in your interests to learn as much as possible before you apply.

Regardless of where in Texas you reside, the consequences of a disability are much more than physical discomfort, medical care, loss of function. In addition to the stress of the disability itself, there is the financial strain when the cost of medical bills is added to everyday household expenses. Social Security disability benefits often provide the only way that many TX families are able to stay afloat. Unfortunate events occur daily, everywhere, and can lead to circumstances where even your best efforts cannot overcome the obstacles. If you or a loved one is injured and disabled so as to be unemployable, you owe it to yourself and your family to find out if you qualify for these important benefits. Social Security disability insurance covers all US citizens, and if you qualify for benefits this program can be a lifeline in an otherwise torrent of bad luck. Preserve your medical records, and all related documentation so that the applications process will not become a burden. If you feel you need help, you can seek legal assistance here. You should know that you don't need an attorney, but of course having an advocate who knows the ropes will always be an advantage.

In order to qualify, you need to prove to the government's satisfaction that you are truly disabled. But it is often a process that can be overwhelming and too much for the average person to handle on their own.

To start the social security disability (SSD) or supplemental security income (SSI) benefits application process, you have several options. You can apply in person at your local Texas Social Security Administration office, you can call the national toll-free hotline or you can apply online at the SSA website. Your fourth option is to call a social security disability benefits advocate. While it isn't mandatory to have a disability benefits lawyer help you through every portion of the claims process, their knowledge of SSD and SSI regulations can assist you with avoiding much of the red tape involved in getting your case resolved successfully.

Texas Geographical Factoid:

Did You Know This Piece of Texas Trivia?:

Texas is home to the Aransas Wildlife Refuge, which is the winter home of North America's only remaining flock of whooping cranes. Proving the adage that everything is bigger in Texas, the state's capitol building in Austin stands seven feet higher than that of the nation's Capitol in Washington, D.C.
