Beaumont, Texas, the seat of Jefferson County, had a population of 118,296 in 2010. It is a growing city in the Beaumont-Port Arthur metro area which sits in the “Golden Triangle”, a major industrial center on the Gulf Coast. The Port of Beaumont is central to commerce in the area, and the education, healthcare, engineering and technology industries also play a major part in the local economy.
The residents of Beaumont are serviced by the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Region 6 district office in Dallas. That office sees around 64,000 new claims each year and distributes Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to more than 630,000 beneficiaries annually.
SSDI is paid to individuals with no employment income because of total or complete disability lasting twelve or more months. To qualify for SSDI, you must meet the SSA’s disability requirements and have accumulated sufficient work credits throughout the course of your employment. If you do not meet the work credit requirements, you may still be eligible to receive SSI payments.
Apply for Beaumont Social Security Disability Benefits
The application process for Beaumont Social Security Disability benefits is long and complicated. The SSA only approves 31.6 percent of initial claims reviewed in Dallas. This leaves all other applicants in the review process, meaning they must request a reconsideration of their application and potentially an appeal as well.
Only 11.2 percent of those who receive a second review of their SSD claim are found eligible for benefits. Most who are initially denied benefits must proceed through the appeals process, sending their cases in front of an administrative law judge for a final decision.
Appeal hearings result in approval ratings of about 45 percent. The majority of claims which are denied benefits in all the various stages of reviews by the SSA are lacking sufficient medical documentation. Having the assistance of a Beaumont disability attorney can make it more likely you’ll see a favorable determination on your claim for SSD benefits.
