Social Security Disability in Laredo, TX

Qualifications to receive SSDI and SSI benefits in Laredo

In This Section:


Are disabled and unable to work? Is your condition expected to last for at least 12 continuous months? Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in Laredo, Texas, is awarded to workers who are disabled, according to the Social Security Administration, and who have a severe physical or mental health condition which does not allow them to perform substantial gainful activity (SGA) for at least 12 continuous months or is expected to result in their death.

Not all disabled workers can receive SSDI in Laredo. Workers must first work and pay enough in employment taxes to earn 20-40 work credits over the course of their employment. The amount of work credits needed to be insured will vary by age at the time of disability. Most full-time workers in Laredo can earn 4 work credits per year.

Auxiliary SSDI benefits in Laredo may also be paid to qualifying widows, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents over 18 years old, who were disabled prior to the age of 22.

Not all Laredo workers qualify for SSDI. If a worker has not worked or paid taxes they will not qualify. The Federal Government does, however, offer Supplemental Security Income in Laredo to claimants who are disabled, blind or aged (age 65 and older). SSI claimants must also have very limited income and resources. Claimants who are approved for Supplemental Security Income in Laredo may also qualify for Medicaid at the time of their approval.
