File an SSDI claim

Are you interested in applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits? If so, it is important for you to understand the application process, and learn how to actually file your disability benefits claim.

The general process can be quite complicated and time-consuming.

This is why it is prudent to hire an experienced disability lawyer who understands the application process. At the Law Offices of Bemis, Roach & Reed, our Texas disability lawyers have the experience and knowledge to help you. We understand that your disabling condition may put a financial strain on you and your family.


What You Will Need to File a Claim

Generally, if your disabling medical or mental condition prevents you from working and functioning normally, and your condition is expected to last at least 12 months, you will qualify for SSD benefits. For certain disabling conditions, the Social Security Administration lists particular criteria that the applicant must prove to be considered disabled. This means that if you have a listed condition, like cancer, and can prove you suffer from specific symptoms and complications, you will become automatically eligible to receive benefits.


The primary way to prove your disabling condition and your symptoms is through medical evidence.

Diagnoses, doctor evaluations, hospital records, and the like will be required when filing your claim. These pieces of medical evidence will prove to the Social Security Administration that your condition is actually severe enough to be considered a disability. You may also have to meet with your doctor again to complete certain evaluation forms necessary to file your claim. When filing the claim, it is important to be as inclusive as possible. This typically results in a lot of paperwork, which can be time-consuming if you are going through the process alone.
