When a person experiences serious health issues, this can cause a great deal of difficulty in their lives, especially if their ability to work is limited. Fortunately, Social Security benefits are available to those who are disabled, and they can provide essential financial assistance for a person and their family. When applying for these benefits, the proper medical evidence will need to be provided, and a person will be required to demonstrate that their condition is severe enough to prevent them from earning sufficient income to support themselves.

During the Social Security disability application process, an applicant will need to make sure they are following the correct procedures and providing the right information. To avoid any issues that could affect their ability to receive benefits, they will want to receive legal help from a lawyer who understands the policies and procedures followed in these cases. The attorneys of the Law Offices of Coats & Todd have over 60 years of combined experience in cases involving Social Security disability. We have helped numerous clients successfully receive benefits, and we are prepared to help disabled individuals address any issues that may affect their ability to secure financial assistance that will allow them to meet their needs.

SSDI and SSI Benefits for Disabled Individuals in Frisco

Different types of disability benefits may be available depending on a person's age and history of employment. Those who have spent multiple years working may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), as long as they have paid Social Security taxes and earned sufficient work credits. Those who have not been able to earn work credits or who have limited financial resources may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

A person may be considered disabled if they suffer from serious physical or mental health issues that have caused them to be unable to maintain what is known as substantial gainful activity (SGA). If health issues have resulted in an inability to earn a monthly income below the level that is considered SGA, a person may be considered disabled. However, they will need to demonstrate that they cannot maintain employment because of their condition, and a condition will only be considered a disability if it affects them for at least 12 months.

Certain types of health conditions will automatically qualify as disabilities if they meet the requirements specified in the listing of impairments used by Social Security. However, even if a condition is not included in this listing, a person may still qualify for disability if they can prove that their health issues have made it impossible for them to perform work they had done in the past or find employment in other available positions.

Health conditions that may qualify as disabilities include:
