Mesquite Social Security Disability Resources

In order to be found eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in Mesquite, TX, you’ll need to show you’ve been disabled – and unable to earn a living wage as a result – for an extended period of time before applying for benefits with the Social Security Administration (SSA). The application process takes several months and it’s important to understand that only about 33 percent of applicants are approved during the first review.

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 to complete.

Mesquite Health Resources

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

Your Mesquite Social Security Disability Claim

There’s never a guarantee of disability benefits even with a well-documented case file; however, a Mesquite Social Security attorney can increase your odds of being found eligible for SSD. No upfront fees are charged by a Mesquite Social Security lawyer, which means you don’t have to worry 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.
