McKinney, Texas, the governmental seat of Collin County, is a growing community, consistently ranking among the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. In 2010, McKinney had a population of 131,117 and credited local and county government; manufacturing, distribution and retail facilities; and educational institutions, including the local school district and community college, as the primary employers in the city’s economy.
McKinney is 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 provided to people who have no employment income as a result of total or complete disability which last for twelve or more months. To qualify for SSDI, you must not only meet the SSA’s disability requirements, you must also have accumulated sufficient work credits throughout the course of your employment, specifically during the previous decade before you submit a disability claim. If you do not meet the work credit requirements, you may still be eligible to receive SSI payments.
Apply for McKinney Social Security Disability Benefits
The application process for McKinney Social Security Disability benefits is long and complicated. The SSA only approves 31.6 percent of initial claims reviewed in Dallas, leaving all other applicants to additional reviews and many to eventually request an appeal. With only 11.2 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 benefits must proceed through the appeals process, sending their cases in front of an administrative law judge for a final decision.
Most initial McKinney Social Security Disability benefits claims are denied because they lack sufficient medical documentation or because disabled individuals have not received the specific tests or treatments the SSA required with their particular disabilities. It is in your best interest to hire a McKinney Social Security Disability attorney to assist you in compiling and filing your application.
As an experienced attorney, familiar with the SSDI and SSI process, a McKinney disability attorney can ensure all appropriate medical documents and other details are in your file prior to submission of your claim. This increases your chances of being found eligible for SSD benefits during the initial review process and reduces the likelihood that you’ll need to go through a second review and an appeal hearing.
