How do I apply for Social Security disability benefits?
There are basically three ways to apply for Social Security disability benefits. You can either call the 1 (800) number for Social Security, which is 1 (800) 772-1213, and ask to do your application over the telephone, and they will make an appointment for you in the future, to do this. You can also go online to ssa.gov, and do your application online. However, if you start your application online, be certain that you write down the reentry number that they give you on the screen. Otherwise, if you can’t complete your application in one session, you will be unable to reenter that application, and that is kind of a difficult process.
The third way you can do it is to go directly to your local office, wait in line, and get a customer service representative to be able to do the application. You may not be able to do it while you’re there initially. They may actually schedule you an appointment to have to come back on another day to do it. By far, the easiest way to do the application is to have a consultation with an attorney that can set this up for you, and they can set it up by telephone. You’ll be advised of the appointment date and time, and what you need to have in front of you necessary for the application, and then the attorney will follow up on the application to make sure that all of the information that’s needed has been provided to the Social Security Administration.
