Carrollton Social Security Disability

Carrollton, Texas is a mid-sized city with a population of about 119,000 as of the 2010 census. Located in the metropolitan area of Dallas though, the city is growing and its expanding city limits which cross three county lines are a testament to its prosperity. The energy, healthcare and manufacturing industries make up the base of the city’s economy though a range of large and small businesses call the region home.

Carrollton is serviced by the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Region 6 district office in Dallas. The Dallas regional office distributes Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income to individuals.

SSDI is awarded to disabled workers who have been out of work for 12 or more months because of their disability. In order to receive SSDI, you must prove you’re disabled and have sufficient work history to satisfy work credit requirements from the SSA. If you do not meet the work credit requirements, you may still be eligible to receive SSI if you can substantiate your inability to work resulting from a disability.

Apply for Carrollton Social Security Disability Benefits

The application process for Carrollton Social Security Disability benefits is a long and complicated one. The Social Security Administration only approves about 32 percent of initial claims which are reviewed in the Dallas regional office. This essentially means the other 78 percent of applicants must request a second review and many also need to file an appeal after they are denied a second time.

With only about 11 percent of those who receive a second review of their SSD claim being found eligible for benefits, the majority of people who are initially denied must proceed through the appeals process. An appeal will put the case before an Administrative Law Judge for a final decision on your eligibility.

Most initial Carrollton Social Security Disability benefits claims are denied as a result of insufficient medical documentation or the lack of specific and required medical test results. It is in your best interest to hire a Carrollton Social Security Disability attorney to assist you in putting together your application. He or she can ensure you have the right medical documentation in your claim to increase your chances of receiving benefits. A Carrollton disability lawyer can also argue your appeal with the judge and help you get prepared for testifying.
