AUSTIN – The Texas Health and Human Services Commission is inviting qualified jobseekers to learn more about a career serving fellow Texans during a one-day job fair on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2022.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) Disability Determination Services (DDS) program, which is administered in Texas by the HHSC’s Office of Access and Eligibility Services, is looking to fill multiple positions in Austin. Positions include Disability Specialists (DS), who make medical determinations based on SSA disability policy for individuals who have applied for SSA disability benefits (SSI/SSDI). Other positions include administrative support to the DS positions, including accounting, budget, and technical support roles.

“This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who is motivated and compassionate about helping their fellow Texans,” said Mary Wolfe, DDS administrator and HHS deputy associate commissioner of Access and Eligibility Services. “We’re excited about the opportunity to connect with highly motivated and dedicated people who will join our team in this rewarding career.”

Texas HHSC offers competitive salaries, employer paid health benefits, and paid vacation and sick leave.
