Applying for Social Security Disability benefits

People who have debilitating disabilities that leave them unable to do their daily job may find themselves in need of financial assistance. In such a situation, it may be best for a disabled person to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. When applying for Social Security disability, make sure to keep the following in mind:

  • Disabled workers who are physically able to get to a local Social Security Administration (SSA) office may want to schedule an appointment and file their claim in person.
  • Disabled applicants who are currently confined in the hospital or are immobilized by their current condition may apply through telephone or by visiting the SSA’s official website. Applicants should provide their work history from the last 15 years, including their medical records and an explanation how their disabilities hamper them from working.
