Social Security Disability in Garland, TX

Qualify for SSDI and SSI benefits in Garland

In This Section:


Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in Garland is available to workers who are disabled, according to the Social Security Administration (SSA), due to a physical or mental disabling health condition which is so severe that it does not allow them to perform substantial gainful activity (SGA) for at least 12 continuous months or is expected to result in death.

Auxiliary benefits may also be provided, under certain conditions, to the widow, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents of Garland SSDI recipients.

Not all disabled workers qualify for SSDI in Garland. Social Security Disability Insurance in Garland is only offered to claimants who have paid employment taxes and have earned 20-40 work credits over the course of their employment. Most full-time workers can earn 4 work credits per year. The amount of work credits needed to qualify for SSDI in Garland may depend on the claimant's age at the time of their disability.

Disabled workers who have not worked jobs covered by Social Security or who have not paid taxes will not qualify for SSDI in Garland. The Federal Government does, however, offer Supplemental Security Income or SSI benefits to individuals who are disabled, blind or aged (age 65 and older) and who have very limited resources and income. Claimants who are approved for Supplemental Security Income in Garland may also qualify for Medicaid, in most states, at the time of their approval.
