Social Security Disability and Your Balch Springs SSA Office
Many people rely on resources and support from their local SSA office in Balch Springs to apply for Social Security Disability benefits, including SSDI or SSI. They may have questions about the benefits they qualify for, which program is best for them, or the application process.
What Is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)?
SSDI is a program for workers who suffer an injury or have a diagnosis that prevents them from working for a year or more, will likely prevent them from working, or will lead to their death. There are no income limits for this program, but you will have to show you cannot work and earn a living through your medical records or a residual functional capacity assessment.
What Is Supplemental Security Income?
SSI provides additional income for households that meet strict income and asset eligibility requirements. This program helps the most at-need households meet their most basic needs, including rent, utilities, food, and clothing. There is no need to prove work history, but the application process does consider most types of income for everyone living in the household.
What If the SSA Denied My Claim?
Your best bet if you receive a denial of your initial application for SSDI or SSI is not to contact the Social Security Administration. Instead, you may want to connect with a disability lawyer serving Balch Springs and greater Dallas County to help you understand why. An attorney can assess your claim, explain the appeals process, and help you navigate that process, fighting for the compensation you need.
These lawyers are only allowed to charge a limited portion of the backpay they recover for you in your case. You will not need to pay them anything upfront to secure their representation.
