WESLACO – He’s been denied twice for disability insurance benefits, but his fight isn’t over.

Soon he will have another chance to present his case in front of a judge.

Paul Tyzniks, 46, says he loved to work with his hands on heavy equipment before his health conditions didn’t allow him to do so anymore.

He was diagnosed with multiple lower back diseases.

The doctor who evaluated Tyzniks after his surgery stated the maximum number of hours Tyzniks would be allowed to work is two hours a day.

That same evaluation also says Tyzniks is not permanently disabled.

A disability advocate says it’s unfortunately common for people under the age of 55 to have a harder time being granted disability benefits.
