Texas Social Security Disability Lawyer
There are two programs offered by the United States government that provide assistance to disabled workers. Â Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These programs assist workers who are no longer able to work due to a permanent physical or mental condition that prevents the person from working.
The safety net provided by these programs can be a godsend to people who have no other source of income, but it is complicated to obtain. Statistics show that persons who are represented have a better chance at getting approved than persons who are not represented.

When you submit an application for Social Security Disability benefits, there is a five step process in evaluating whether you are disabled. There are many factors that go into this five step review process. Some of the factors include:
- Do you have a serious medical condition that is demonstrated by medical evidence?
- Are you working now? If so, is the work you are doing considered Substantial Gainful Activity?
- Do you have the ability to do other, less strenuous work?
- If you have the ability to do less strenuous work, do you have skills that transfer based upon your education or work history?
- If you can do less strenuous work, are there jobs that exist that will accommodate your limitations
