Qualifications to receive SSI and SSDI benefits in Plano

In This Section:


Social Security Disability Insurance in Plano, Texas, is awarded to workers who are determined disabled by the Social Security Administration with 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. Under certain conditions, auxiliary benefits may be paid to their widow, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents over 18 years old (who were disabled prior to the age of 22).

Not all workers qualify for SSDI in Plano. To qualify, claimants must have paid employment taxes and have earned 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 can earn 4 work credits per year.

Plano residents who have not worked or paid taxes but who are disabled, blind or aged (age 65 and older) may qualify for Supplemental Security Income or SSI in Plano.
