If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a disabling medical or mental condition, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
Applying for SSD benefits by yourself can be challenging, especially when coping with your medical condition.
Why should you apply for SSD? If you do decide to apply, should you hire an attorney?
If you are interested in applying for SSD benefits, you will need an experienced disability lawyer. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Bemis, Roach & Reed help Texas residents applying for benefits.
Why Should I Apply for Texas Disability Benefits?
There are many reasons to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. The single most common reason for most is to supplement their financial resources. The basic criterion for receiving disability benefits is that you are no longer able to work like you once did. That is, you may once have worked an active, full-time job but are no longer able to work in that position (or a similar position) because of your medical or mental condition. Often, because of the severity of your condition, treatment can be quite costly. Hospital bills, doctor visits, surgeries, medications, therapy, the list goes on for medical expenses you may encounter due to your disability. SSD benefits are intended to supplement the income you are no longer able to earn. If your application for SSD is approved, you will receive cash benefits each month.
Another reason to apply for disability benefits is because of the duration of your disability.
In order to qualify for benefits, your disabling condition must be long term. Though the length of time may differ depending on the illness, typically your illness must be anticipated to last at least one year. Because of your long-term condition, you could need the financial supplement provided by SSD benefits for an extended time.
Some conditions that may qualify for disability benefits include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Congestive heart failure
- Bipolar Disorder
These are just a few disabling conditions that may qualify you to receive benefits. In all cases where you are entitled to disability benefits you must complete the application process before you can receive any.
