Highly experienced Texas Social Security Disability Lawyers

When you think of “disability benefits,” you may not realize there are actually different kinds of benefits.

Generally speaking, all forms of disability benefits are intended to supplement the income of someone suffering from a disabling medical or mental condition that prevents them from working. Because your disability prevents you from working, either partially or completely, your condition can affect your income causing financial burden.

On top of losing income, you may be struggling to pay for the medical costs associated with your disabling condition.

If you can no longer work because of a medical or mental condition, you may qualify to receive a form of disability benefits known as Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.To ensure the best possible results for your benefits application, contact disability lawyers at Bemis, Roach & Reed today.

What is Social Security Disability Insurance?

Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, is a type of benefit that is linked to how long you worked prior to being disabled. While working, you pay money for Social Security taxes, thus “insuring” yourself in the event you develop a disability. This type of insurance benefits workers who have paid into the system in previous years. SSDI does not depend on your level of income, which means that your income level will not prevent you from qualifying for SSDI. However, to qualify you must be considered disabled by the Social Security Administration.

Who is Considered “Disabled”?

The Social Security Administration is the federal agency that collects taxes for SSDI and also pays these benefits out to qualified recipients. This agency is responsible for determining who is considered disabled, and who receives disability benefits. The Social Security Administration defines a disability as a medical or mental condition that is expected to last at least one year (or result in death) that prevents someone from working. Your condition must prevent you from working in your current (or most recent) job, or at a similar job. On top of that basic definition, some benefit applicants must prove with medical evidence that their condition causes certain symptoms or complications. These criteria are found in the Social Security Administration disability listings. These disability listings explain what symptoms you must have in order to qualify for benefits due to your condition.

Should I Hire an Attorney?

Applying for SSDI benefits is notoriously difficult to do alone. Various forms have to be completed, a lot of paperwork is involved, and the process can be quite lengthy. Consider that while applying for SSDI benefits, you are also trying to cope with your disabling condition. Trying to manage a disability while going through the difficult application process can be overwhelming if you do it alone. If you are interested in applying for SSDI, you should contact the Austin, Texas disability lawyers at Bemis, Roach & Reed.
