How Can I Figure Out If I Qualify?
Posted in: Application Process on August 2nd, 2011

If you are thinking about applying for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, one of the first things that you need to do is figure out if you qualify for them or not.  This seems like an obvious step, but the fact of the matter is that lots of people enter the application process without fully evaluating their own eligibility for the benefits.  Not only does this cause the process to slow down as a whole, it can waste a lot of money and time for both the person applying for the benefits and on the behalf of the Social Security Administration.

Be sure to take the time and figure out your own eligibility for the program before you apply.  You don’t want to spend nearly a year waiting for benefits that will never come because you didn’t read all of the appropriate information first!

How Do I Figure It Out?

The first step is either to go to the Social Security Administration’s site at www.ssa.gov or call them at 800-772-1213.  This will put you in contact with a representative form the Social Security Administration and together you can evaluate your eligibility for the program.  You can also figure out what steps you need to take to change your eligibility if it turns out that you would not be accepted for the program as is.

Another option is to employ representation.  Many companies that specialize in representing individuals during the Social Security Disability Insurance application process offer free consultations to determine eligibility.  There are also some social security disability lawyers that won’t charge any fees unless they win your benefits case. Once you figure this out, then you can make the decision whether or not to hire representation.
