What Benefits Are Available?
In Texas, a disabled person can receive SSDI or SSI benefits from the state. However, to apply for their program you must be disabled for at least 12 months prior to filing. To qualify for SSDI you must have been employed for the majority of your life. To qualify for SSI, however, you do not need to be currently employed or employed in the past. But you cannot have more than $2,000 of income.
If you qualify for SSDI, you will be enrolled in Medicare after a 24-month period. An SSI applicant does not qualify for Medicare, but you may be able to receive Medicaid because it is run by the state.
Texas Disability Appeals
If your application to receive these benefits is denied for any reason, you may be able to appeal this decision. Ourattorneys can help you request a hearing and provide skilled legal representation throughout this process.
