Social Security Disability in Fort Worth, TX

Qualifying for Disability Benefits Insurance in Fort Worth

In This Section:


Social Security Disability Insurance in Fort Worth (SSDI) may be given to employees who are disabled, according to the Social Security Administration, with a physical or mental health condition which does not allow them to perform substantial gainful activity (SGA) and is so severe that it is expected to last for at least 12 continuous months or result in the worker's death.

Social Security Disability Insurance in Fort Worth is not available to all disabled workers; in fact, workers will only qualify for Fort Worth SSDI if they have paid employment taxes and have earned 20-40 work credits over the course of their employment working jobs that are "covered" by Social Security.

Most full-time workers in Fort Worth can earn 4 work credits per year, and the number needed varies based on the age of the worker at the time of their disability. Social Security Disability Insurance auxiliary benefits may be paid Widows, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents over 18 years old, who were disabled prior to the age of 22.

What if the claimant has worked but not paid taxes or not worked at all? Unfortunately, claimants with insufficient work credits will not qualify for Fort Worth SSDI. The Federal Government does, however, offer another wage assistance program for the disabled, blind or aged (age 65 and older). It is called Supplemental Security Income, and it is only offered to individuals with very limited resources and income.
