Is there a short term Social Security Disability Benefit in Texas?




 
This question gets asked quite a bit.

Social Security administers two disability programs in Texas, SSI and Social Security disability. Both programs require that an individual meet the criteria for disability as defined by the Social Security Administration.

The law defines disability for an adult as the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity because of any medically determinable physical and/or mental impairment/s that is expected to last for twelve continuous months or which has lasted for twelve months or is expected to result in death.

If the disability claimant in Texas is a child under the age of eighteen, they will be considered disabled if they have a medically determinable physical or mental impairment, or combinations of impairments, which have resulted in severe functional limitations. Severe functional limitations must have lasted for twelve continuous months or must be expected to last for twelve month or potentially result in death.

Consequently, Social Security disability does not pay short-term disability benefits to adults or children.

Additionally, Social Security disability does not provide for any partial or percentage disability benefits such as those provided by the Veteranís Administration. Social Security is a one hundred percent disability program, meaning that an individual has to be unable to perform all substantial work activity (including past work and other work), in order to receive disability benefits.
