Can I get SSD if I am also getting workers' compensation?

Like the other states in the country, Texas has a workers' compensation program. This program allows most Killeen or Fort Hood workers to collect benefits for lost wages should they suffer a work-related injury that leaves them debilitated and unable to return to their jobs.

Report: attorneys have positive impact on SSD applications

Many residents of the Kileen and Fort Hood area unfortunately are struggling with illnesses or injuries that keep them out of work. Many of these Texans want to work but cannot, and they have to eventually look for other means of financial support. Oftentimes, they may turn to the disability programs of the Social Security Administration in hopes of qualifying for monthly SSD benefits.

What is substantial gainful activity for SSD purposes?


As mentioned previously on this blog, there are certain requirements that must be met in order to receive Social Security disability benefits. The medical requirements have been mentioned in previous posts on this blog. Today's post will focus on the requirement of "substantial gainful activity," and how it applies to Social Security disability benefits.

Though an SSD appeal may be delayed, success is possible


Texas residents whose Social Security disability benefits claim has been denied and are awaiting an appeal should take heart from the fact that they are not alone in this boat -- there are more than one million people currently awaiting an administrative hearing in front of a judge to appeal their denied Social Security disability benefits. When the Social Security Administration does not approve a person's application for benefits, it is no surprise that the applicant would want to appeal the SSA's decision. And according to data released by the SSA, many appeals are accepted.

Understand the medical requirements to receive SSD benefits


When you spend your day working hard at your job so you can remain independent and provide for your family's financial needs, it comes as a shock when an injury or illness renders you unable to work anymore. This is especially true if you then have to rely on others for assistance. In order to lessen the financial blow of losing a job due to a disability, the Social Security Administration administers federal programs that provide financial benefits to qualifying disabled individuals in Texas and nationwide.
