Application Process for SSD Benefits

Applying for SSI & SSD in Dallas, Texas

In order to obtain Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) benefits, you must complete an application and disability report. Both documents are sent to the Social Security Administration, who will review the claim to determine if you meet the minimum criteria for financial assistance. If the basic qualifications are met, the application and supporting documentation will be sent to the state's Disability Determination Services office.

DDS will conduct a thorough review of the application and medical information regarding the extent of your disability, including how it affects your daily life. In some situations, additional data may be requested. You may also be asked to get an examination from a medical professional.

Who Makes the Final Decision?

The state DDS office will make the final decision regarding your application. If you are approved for benefits, you will receive a letter from the DDS stating how much money you will receive and when payments will begin. If your application has been denied, you will receive a letter with information on how to appeal the decision. If you have a disability, you should contact a Dallas Social Security Disability lawyer to explain the application process in more detail, and to discuss the medical documentation that will be needed for your claim.

You may qualify for SSD if you have previously been employed and contributed to the Social Security program, and your injury or illness is considered a disability under SSD guidelines. SSI benefits are awarded based on a person's needs, as opposed to their contributions to Social Security. Properly filling out an application and providing complete medical information is vital to the outcome of your claim. This includes documentation on the extent of your disability, how it affects your ability to work and other ways that your disability impacts your life.

Information that will need to be provided includes:

  • Social Security Number
  • Birth Certificate
  • List of Current Income Sources
  • Recent Tax Returns
  • Medical Records
  • Physician or Medical Care Provider Contact Information
  • Medical Evidence Pertaining to Your Disability
