The Social Security Administration has a disability program (SSDI) aimed to provide assistance for individuals who can no longer work and have made their contributions to the program before they become disabled. However, disabled individuals should know that they will need to provide information about themselves upon filing for their benefits.

  • Personal information including complete name updated home address and phone numbers
  • Names of doctors including their complete contact numbers
  • Medical documents provided by physicians, hospitals and other medical practitioners
  • Employment history
  • Recent copy of tax documents

SSDI applicants should know that aside from the above requirements, the SSA will require them to fill out forms. The SSA will also coordinate with the doctors and hospitals who have provided treatment to the applicant for them to get a clear picture of the person’s disability.

When you have decided to file for your SSDI benefits, getting help from a knowledgeable attorney is a viable option mostly if you are not familiar with the process. Find out how an Indiana attorney of Hankey Marks & Crider may help you in the filing process today by calling (317) 634-8565.
