Corpus Christi Social Security Disability Resources

In order to be found eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income in Corpus Christi, TX, you’ll need to show you’ve been disabled – and unable to earn an income as a result – for a year or more before applying for benefits with the Social Security Administration (SSA). The application process takes a long time and it’s important to understand that only about 34% of applicants are approved during the first review stage. If you’re denied initially, you can request a second review. If denied again, you may file an appeal and have your case reviewed by an Administrative Law Judge, though you should realize the entire process could take as long as 16 months.

There are three primary ways to apply for Corpus Christi disability benefits: contact the main SSA phone line at (800) 772-1213; visit your nearest SSA office; or apply online. If you need assistance finding your local SSA office, you can call the number above or visit the SSA’s office locator website.

Corpus Christi Health Resources

You’ll submit your application for Corpus Christi disability benefits to your local SSA office where it will be reviewed for completeness before being sent on to the Disability Determination Services (DDS) office. The DDS reviews all medical documentation in your claim. To be found eligible for SSD, you’ll need to document that you’ve received continuous and ongoing medical care for the disabling conditions that have resulted in your disability. Accomplishing this with limited financial resources can be difficult. Here are some Corpus Christi disability resources for low cost and no cost medical services to help out.

Your Corpus Christi Social Security Disability Claim

There’s never a guarantee of disability benefits even with a well-documented case file; however, a Corpus Christi Social Security attorney can increase your odds. No upfront fees are charged by a Corpus Christi Social Security lawyer, which means you need not be concerned about how you’ll pay for legal services. Payment is only processed if you receive benefits. If you’re approved for SSD, you’ll be paid retroactive benefits and 25% of those retroactive payments (up to a max of $6,000) will go to the attorney.
