SSDI Application Process

Talk with a Social Security Disability Representative

If you believe you qualify for Social Security disability, the first step is to submit your application to the Social Security Administration (SSA). Completing the application can be a time-consuming and extensive procedure. Though you can choose to complete this application on your own, many individuals find relief and positive results when seeking out the help of a knowledgeable SSDI lawyer or representative.

How Do I Get Started?

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits starts by retaining the legal services of a reputable law office 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.
