How does an administrative hearing work?

Even if they have a good argument that they are legally disabled and thus entitled to Social Security benefits, many residents of Killeen, Texas, or the Fort Hood area will still wind up having their applications denied at the initial stages.

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.
