I’d like to explain the process of applying for Social Security Disability Benefits. There are several ways to apply and it’s important to begin the process as soon as you realize that your condition is so severe that you’re not going to be able to work for an extended period of time of a year or more.
You can file your application by calling our law firm. We help you through the application every step of the way or you can call Social Security’s toll free number and ask for a telephone appointment with a Social Security claim’s representative. Social Security will set up an appointment for you and they will call you on the phone at the appointed time and help you get through the application process. The third way to apply for Social Security Disability is to go to SSA.gov and file an online application.
It’s really important for you to know that the only kind of benefit you can apply for online is regular Social Security Disability Benefits for adults. You cannot apply for SSI or any other kind of Social Security Disability Benefit online. That will have to be done by either making an appointment with Social Security Disability to do that or contacting our law office and we can help you do that.
