Applying for Social Security Disability

Talk with a Social Security Disability Representative

In order to receive Social Security Disability benefits for an injury or health condition, you must first complete the application process. While the majority of the application can now be done online, it can still be a very difficult and complex process for individuals to interpret. If you are not familiar with the process or the online application, it can be very frustrating to navigate alone.

The best way to approach your Social Security Disability application is by enlisting the services of a skilled Social Security Disability team who understand the process and how to get the best results. At Disability Action Advocates, we have assisted countless applicants over the last two decades making the most compelling case possible. We're ready to partner with you in this process ensuring that your application stands the best possible chance of being awarded the benefits you need.

What information will I need for the application?

Before applying for benefits, it is important that you make sure you fit the requirements to qualify. By meeting with a seasoned legal professional, we can determine whether or not filing an application would be in your best interests.

It is also important to have all pertinent documentation, such as:

  • Your Social Security card
  • Income paperwork
  • Proof of citizenship or status
  • Information on your physical condition
  • Your earnings up to the disability

You may also be required to request a job history summary, which goes in-depth into your medical information, employment status and more. Finally, an Authorize to Disclose form will be used to effectively release all medical records and other information regarding your education and work. While all other steps may be completed online by you or a qualified attorney/representative, this form must be brought to a local Social Security office.

Submitting Your Application

There are several steps you will need to complete in order to have your application accepted. First, you will want to collect all relevant information regarding your injury, medical history, employment, etc. Next, you should contact the Social Security office, whether by phone or in person to request an interview. After the interview, you can complete your application. Once submitted, the Disability Determination Services will evaluation your application and determine if your disability warrants benefits.

Once you have an interview set up and attend it, you can complete your application. Once you have submitted it, the Disability Determination Services will evaluation your application and determine whether you should receive benefits or not for your disability.
