Applying For Benefits
Posted in: Application Process on August 23rd, 2011


disability applicationWhether you are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, the time will come when you need to stop reading about applying for benefits and actually get to the business of applying.  When this happens, what do you need to do in order to get the process started?

Applying Made Easy

Right now, there are three main ways of applying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Benefits.  First, you can apply over the internet.  Second, you can call in to your local branch.  Third, you can show up at the nearest Social Security Administration building and apply there.  For convenience, the first and second options are often the most popular, and the first one is generally the most recommended.  Showing up to the actual office branch could mean that you end up sitting there for a couple of hours before actually talking to someone who can help you apply.

While applying online is easy and fast for those who are used to working with the internet, applying over the phone gives the whole process a bit more of a human component which can help you in your claim.

After you have inputted your initial application into the system, whether you do it by phone, internet, or in the office, a claimant will either be interviewed in person or over the phone.

This is the basic process of applying for disability benefits.  It can easily get much more complicated – but the beginning parts are simple, at least!  Be sure to be as comprehensive during your initial application as you can – it will save you a lot of trouble later!
