Filing for Social Security Disability SSI Texas

How have social security disability and SSI disability claimants fared in Texas recently? At the initial claim level (the application), SSD and SSI claimants in texas have been denied at the rate of 61.5%. For those who were denied and chose to file appeals, texas claimants were again denied at an even higher rate: 84.2%. The rates of denial in texas seem to mirror what you see in most southern states; that is, more initial claims are denied than are approved and an astoundingly high percentage of first appeals are likewise denied.
