HOUSTON, TX – Houston Social Security lawyer, Gerard Lynch, is often asked the question: How do I apply for social security disability benefits in the Houston area. One can contact either a Houston Social Security disability regional center representative or choose to hire a Houston social security disability attorney to help with the application.
To complete the application for Social Security Disability insurance you will need to provide information to the Houston Social Security Disability representative regarding your entire work and medical history, recent W-2 forms, a valid birth certificate, marital status. etc.
After your Social Security Disability application is complete, it will be sent to the Texas Division of Disability Determinations headquarters in Austin, TX. It could take up to 4 months for you to receive information about your Social Security Disability benefits.
Because of the bureaucratic red tape, it is possible to be denied benefits when in fact you may be eligible and should never have been denied. SSD benefits are paid by the FICA taxes which are deducted from your paycheck. Everyone who has paid into the system is eligible, and it does not matter if your spouse has a good income or if you have significant financial assets. SSI, however, is really a welfare program for disabled people, and is available to anyone even if they have never worked. But with SSI your income and assets can be looked at and you may lose your benefits if you exceed a certain level of income.
Because the formula can be complex, it may be wise to hire an experienced Houston social security disability lawyer who can help you file for SSI insurance benefits and get the proper assistance that you need. At The Law Office of Gerard Lynch, we charge NO FEE unless we win your case.
