How to Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits

To apply for adult Social Security Disability Benefits, you must be an adult who is not already receiving benefits, who is suffering from a medical condition that is supposed to render him/her unfit to work for at least a year, and who has not applied and been denied within the last 60 days. If your unique situation meets the criteria necessary to file for Social Security Disability Benefits, you can apply by using one of three methods: online, by phone, or in person with an appointment at a nearby Social Security office. Submitting an application online is typically the most efficient and convenient way to apply for disability. Before doing so, be sure to gather the following information so that you can successfully complete the online process:

·         Basic Information About Yourself (i.e. birth date, SSN, children, bank account, etc.)

·         Details Regarding Your Medical Condition

·         Information About Recent and Earlier Employment

You can find further detail regarding the specific information required for the application with this checklist provided by the Social Security Administration. You can, of course, choose to utilize the phone or appointment option if you are more comfortable with those sorts of processes. If, for any reason, your application for social security disability is denied by the Social Security Administration, call Ross & Ross at (814) 274-8612 to schedule a consultation. We will work hard to help you to obtain the social security benefits you’re looking for.
