Applying for Social Security Disability in Houston?

Whether Social Security considers you “disabled” is determined by your inability to work. The agency considers you disabled under its rules if:

Social Security pays only for total disability, not a partial disability.

Why do many people consider applying for benefits difficult?

Applying for Social Security disability benefits is a complicated legal process.  You must prove you are “disabled” according to Social Security Disability regulations.

Why are most people who apply for benefits denied?

The Social Security disability system involves thousands of rules, regulations, and procedures.  You can be denied benefits if your doctor doesn’t know the legal definition of disability, or if a Social Security employee fails to obtain medical evidence on your behalf.  You can also lose your case if an appeal is handled improperly.
