What Do I Need for the Disability Insurance Application?
Posted in: Social Security Disability on September 22nd, 2011

disability applicationWhether you are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, you will need to fill out a disability insurance application. While both of these programs are different, and are managed by different parts of the American government, the application process for both is the same. In order to apply to either of these programs, you will need to fill out a disability insurance application.

The following is what you will need in order to fill out that disability application.

Gather These Materials

In the event that you have served in the United States military, you should gather your military service discharge information. This form, known as Form DD214, is needed for all of your periods of active duty.   You will also need to gather any W-2 forms from the previous fiscal year. If you are self-employed, you will need IRS form 1040 and schedules C and SE. If you are married, or have dependents, you will need to gather their Social Security numbers, as well as your own.

Currently, you may still receive your disability checks via mail. Eventually, however, you will need to receive your disability checks via direct deposit. At the moment, if you would prefer to receive your disability payments by check, you may still choose to do so, but if you would prefer to use direct deposit, you will need to furnish your banking information to the Social Security Administration.

This is essentially all you will need to complete your disability insurance application. The process for applying for social security benefits is not particularly difficult, but it can be long and arduous. Good luck!
