The Art of Filling Out Forms
Posted in: Application Process on August 3rd, 2011

benefit formsIf you are considering applying for either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, it is important to understand the art of filling out government forms.  Did you know that the average wait for benefit payments when applying for either Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income is 500 to 700 days?

One of the major reasons why the system gets so clogged is that many people are not filling out the forms correctly.  This is not necessarily the fault of the individual who is filling out the forms; working with the government is complicated, and understanding what is required of you and what sorts of information are necessary can be a painstaking process, particularly if the applicant has a mental disability.  Even mentally competent people, however, can have trouble filling out these forms!

What To Do?

Before you fill out any forms or submit your application, be sure that you take the time to understand all of the forms you need to fill out and what sorts of information are required of you.  If you are having a hard time understanding the forms or you would just like to double check, be sure to contact your local Social Security office and ask for assistance.  You can also speak to a representative by calling 800-777-1213.

Another option is to hire a representative through a third party company or disability lawyer.  Obviously, the problem with this route is that it costs more money then simply contacting the Social Security Administration and requesting assistance, but the fact of the matter is that sometimes having somebody else who understands the process double check your paperwork can cut down on that wait time.  The process will take a long while regardless, but having the forms properly filled out will save you a lot of heartache!
