Social Security Disability in Dallas, TX

Qualify for Disability Benefits Insurance in Dallas
Social Security Disability Insurance in Dallas (SSDI) is awarded to individuals who are determined disabled by the Social Security Administration with a physical or mental disabling health condition which is so severe that it does not allow them to perform substantial gainful activity (SGA) for at least 12 continuous months or is expected to result in death.

Social Security Disability Insurance in Dallas is only awarded to disabled claimants if they have paid employment taxes and have earned 20-40 work credits over the course of their employment working jobs that are “covered” by Social Security. The amount of work credits needed to be insured will vary by age at the time of disability. Most full-time workers in Dallas can earn 4 work credits per year. Social Security Disability Insurance auxiliary benefits may be paid Widows, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents over 18 years old, who were disabled prior to the age of 22.

Dallas disability claimants who have not worked or have worked but have not paid taxes will not qualify for SSDI in Dallas, but the Federal Government offers another wage assistance program for the disabled, blind or aged (age 65 and older) called Supplemental Security Income or SSI. To qualify for Dallas SSI, claimants must also have very limited income and resources.
