How to Apply for Benefits
Before you apply for disability benefits, you will need to know if you are eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or both.
You can apply for disability on the internet or by making appointment at a local Social Security Administration (SSA) office. You can also call your local SSA office to apply over the phone if you are unable to make it into the office.
However, it is common that with the amount of individuals applying for disability may cause your initial claim to get denied. If this happens, do not get discouraged. They are many options to appeal denied claims helping you receive the benefits you deserve.
Again, we always recommend that you get the support of an experience professional the first time around to give you the best change of getting your claim approved.
