Orthopedic Injury Disability Benefits in Dallas
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are paid to disabled
individuals who have worked at least 5 of the past 10 years and paid their
Social Security taxes (FICA). Requirements are different for people under
the age of 31. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are not based
