There are two ways to apply for Social Security Disability Benefits 1.) Directly with a representative from social security, either via phone or in person, and 2.) Online through the Social Security website. While an Attorney is not required or needed in order to complete the application process it is a good idea.
There is a substantial amount of information required in order to complete the application. Although many applications may be denied, the application process is very important and structures the claim for the hearing level. It is essential that any and all pertinent information regarding your disability be included with the application.
Many individuals who attempt to complete the application in person often find they don’t have all of what is needed, which can lead to incomplete applications or significant delays. Some clients who have completed the application online by themselves have spent hours and hours over a period of days in order to complete everything. We have experience in explaining the medical evidence and other information that needs to be included in your application.
