Henderson Social Security Disability Resources

If you’re applying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income in Henderson, you must be able to prove to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you are unable to work for at least 12 months due to a debilitating medical condition (or conditions.) To apply for disability in Henderson, complete an application at your local Nevada Social Security office, or by calling the SSA at 1-800-772-1213. Unfortunately, over 70% of Henderson disability applications are denied. If this happens, you can file a Request for Reconsideration – but only around 10% of denials are reversed upon reconsideration. Your greatest chance of being approved for benefits comes with your disability hearing - on average, around 60% of Henderson disability applicants are awarded benefits following their Social Security hearings. However, this hearing could take place two years or more from the date of your initial application.

Henderson Health Resources

The best way to show your inability to sustain full-time employment is by obtaining the necessary medical documentation through regular medical treatment. A representative at the Nevada Disability Determination Services (DDS) will review the medical records that you have on file and determine whether or not you have the ability to do any type of work on a regular basis. If you are denied disability benefits due to a lack of medical documentation, you can still submit any missing medical information at the later stages in the appeals process.

If you can’t afford medical treatment, it can be next to impossible to prove that you are disabled. Luckily, the city of Henderson has healthcare resources where you can obtain the necessary treatment. Some Henderson free or reduced-cost medical care resources are listed below.
