Social Security Disability in Sherman-Denison (Grayson County)

Grayson County is a Texas county north of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex bordering Oklahoma. If you live in Grayson County Texas, and you are looking for information about and help with social security disability benefits, you have come to the right place.

Social security disability law is federal law: the same rules and regulations apply to a disability claimant living in Grayson County Texas, and a disability claimant living in another city of Texas, or any other part of the country.

But where you live does matter in a social security disability claim. We understand Grayson County and what it takes to win a disability case there and throughout Texas.

How to Win a Disability Benefits in Grayson County

Key #1: Regular and Ongoing Medical Care

Securing medical treatment when you are not able to work is a challenge – both Grayson County and in Texas in general.  Most medical insurance is tied to employment: lose your job, you lose your medical insurance.  COBRA extended benefits are expensive, and you have a short time window to exercise these rights.  The above census data “pie charts” show Grayson County has a very high rate of residence without medical insurance.

Many Grayson County residents pursue social security disability benefits at least in part to secure medical treatment via Medicare or Medicaid.  But the cruel irony is that without ongoing medical treatment Grayson County residents will have trouble winning disability benefits.

Fortunately, Grayson County has a number of low cost/free medical care options available:

Office of Hearings & Appeals for Grayson County

Most Grayson County social security disability claims– like all disability claims in Texas –eventually go before an Administrative Law Judge for decision. The ALJ hearing is where Grayson County disability claimants have the best chance for benefit approval. Disability claims for those living in Grayson County are handled in the Office of Hearing Operation (“OHO”) for North Dallas.

The following 12 Administrative Law Judges are currently assigned to the North Dallas OHA:

Traditionally ALJ hearings for disability claimants who live in Grayson County have been held in person at the North Dallas Office of Hearing Operations (i.e., Grayson County claimants were required to travel to the Dallas Merit Drive location for their hearing).

With the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic, all OHO offices stopped conducting in person hearings in favor of video or telephone-based hearings. Claimants still had the right to demand an in-person hearing but had to wait until in-person hearings were re-started only recently.

In addition, because video and telephone hearings did require claimant travel, many Grayson County cases are being assigned to OHO offices OTHER than the OHO office in North Dallas.

Currently OHO continues to give claimants the option of a phone or video hearing. While the situation continues to be a bit unsettled, it appears those agreeing to a video or phone hearing will get their hearing date sooner than those demanding an in-person hearing.

Attorney Denman has appeared numerous times before all the ALJs in the North Dallas OHO in his 30 year career, and can also advice Grayson County clients about the important ALJ hearing decision: in-person, telephone, or video?
