Filing for Social Security Disability Benefits

Tue, 12/20/2011

If you have a disability that prevents you from working, you may be eligible for benefits from the Social Security Administration. Unfortunately, collecting these benefits is a complex process that often leaves many qualified candidates without the monetary assistance they need and deserve.

You can apply for Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits in one of three ways:

  • By visiting your local Social Security office
  • Applying online at
  • By calling 1-800-772-1213

Once you have applied, you will either be rejected or accepted by the SSA. If you are denied benefits at any point in the process, you will have 60 days to appeal the SSA’s decision.

The application process for Social Security disability benefits involves lots of paperwork, red tape, and deadlines that can cause your claim to be delayed or denied.
