Social Security Disability Appeals Lawyers
The number of Tarrant County residents who are living with disabilities continues to rise. Many individuals who live with disabilities are no longer able to work to provide for themselves and their families. The federal Social Security Administration (SSA) offers a benefits program that provides monthly payments to individuals who are disabled and unable to work. Unfortunately, applying for these benefits can be challenging. Even residents who submit an accurate and timely application for benefits face denial.
At the Law Office of Carey Thompson, PC, our attorneys have helped many Tarrant County residents successfully appeal a denial of their Social Security claims. Our law firm focuses on assisting disabled residents of Blue Mount, Azle, Fort Worth, Haslet, Keller, Lake Worth, Newark, and Saginaw in obtaining the monthly benefits to which they are entitled. The SSA offers two types of disability benefits: Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Insurance.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Attorneys in Tarrant County, Texas
An applicant must be disabled and unable to support himself or herself financially due to his or her disability to qualify to receive SSDI benefits. The Social Security Administration does not consider a person’s current financial situation when determining whether or not to award benefits. Only citizens who have paid into the Social Security Administration via income tax deductions are entitled to SSDI payments.
Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) Attorneys in Tarrant County, Texas
The Social Security Administration now awards SSI payments to individuals who are over the age of 65, disabled, or blind. An applicant’s resources and income need to fall below a certain threshold to qualify for SSI benefits. In other words, an individual’s income must fall below the standard threshold for the individual to be eligible for SSI benefits. Recipients of SSI payments do not need to have paid into the Social Security system to qualify for benefits.
We Help Residents Appeal Social Security Benefits Denials
The Social Security system can be incredibly confusing. In many instances, the Social Security Administration wrongly denies claims filed by Tarrant County residents. Claimants must file an appeal within 60 days of receiving the notice of the denial.
