SSDI Application Process
Talk with a Social Security Disability Representative

How Do I Get Started?
Applying for Social Security Disability benefits starts by retaining the legal services of a reputable law firm that is highly skilled and experienced in social security benefit filing procedures. Although not legally mandated, having a representative by your side from the beginning can help you prepare the best possible application.
Here are the main steps you will need to take in the application process:
- Collect relevant information regarding your need for benefits
- Contact the Social Security office (by phone or by visiting your local office)
- Arrange and schedule an in-person or phone interview
- Fill out an application with all necessary paperwork with the help a legal advocate
While you file your claim with the Social Security Office, it will be evaluated by the state disability agency known as Disability Determination Services (DDS). If the DDS' final decision is favorable, you will be awarded a monthly financial benefit or payment along with back pay accumulated from the date of your application filing. In addition, you can receive up to 12 months more back pay as long as the disability for that time period was proven.
