Social Security Disability in Waco, TX
Helping You Get the Benefits You Deserve
Your health issues have made working impossible.
If it was up to you, you’d be going to work every day, providing for you and your family. Now, that’s out of your control.
But your bills are still coming, job or not. Not to mention any medical bills you have to pay.
How are you supposed to avoid financial ruin?
Social Security Disability benefits are meant for people in your situation. The monthly checks help you avoid falling off a financial cliff when you can’t work.
There are two types of benefits:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is meant for those with a significant work history who have paid taxes into the Social Security system.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is for those with limited resources. It has no work or tax requirements.
Winning these benefits can be hard, however. Most applicants are denied initially. The entire process can be a confusing mess, full of paperwork and regulations that baffle newcomers.
That’s why you need someone like Merryl Jones on your side.

How to Qualify for SSD in Texas
Social Security does have a general list of conditions that qualify for benefits, but it doesn’t approve claims solely based on it.
If you prove these three things, you can qualify for benefits:
- Your health has made working impossible.
- You can’t switch to another line of work.
- Your condition will force you to miss work for at least a year.
You’ll need to be thorough to win, though. Evidence you should include:
- Hospital records
- Doctor’s reports
- Statements from friends, family and coworkers
- Work records
These documents need to be accurate and complete, too.
We know this process can seem overwhelming. Merryl Jones can answer any questions you have.
