What Impairments Qualify for Disability in Texas?
Get the Benefits You Deserve
When your health forces you out of work, it’s natural to feel helpless.
If it was up to you, none of this would even happen. You’d be happy going to work every day and providing for you and your family like usual.
But you can’t. Your bills keep coming, though. How are you supposed to pay them when you don’t have an income?
Social Security Disability benefits are meant for people like you. The monthly checks can helped you avoid financial disaster while you focus on what’s most important: feeling your best.
Winning these benefits can be hard. Most applicants are denied on their first attempt. It’s confusing enough to make you wonder: Do I even qualify?
In theory, it shouldn’t be difficult to determine. If a health issue makes working impossible, you should be eligible for benefits. But often, it’s not so easy.
The experienced attorneys at the Makris Law Firm make it their mission to help people in need of legal help—people just like you. We can guide you through this tough time and help you navigate the complex Social Security system.
