Welcome to DDS

Disability Determination Services makes the disability determination decision for the  Social Security Adminstration disability program

The Social Security Administration funds the programs for Texans with severe disabilities who apply for:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance
  • Supplemental Security Income.

Texans with disabilities must apply for benefits at their local Social Security Office. Social Security forwards the applications to DDS for a disability determination. Social Security makes the final decision on who is eligible to receive any Social Security benefits.

To apply for Social Security disability benefits, call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 or visit their website at http://www.ssa.gov to learn more about applying for disability benefits.
