Social Security Disability Insurance Application Process
The first step in the process of securing Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is important. Filling out the application requires both thoroughness and attention to detail. It is important SSA knows about all medical problems and all medical records that exist that give support to the severity of these problems. Communicating with a representative of the Social Security Administration (SSA) requires preparation and a focus on the facts of your claim.
Filling out and submitting an application is a formal admission that a disability will prevent you from making a living. At Helzer & Cromar, we will assist you with filling out the application via the Internet. We know that the decision is not an easy one and our clients face a complex and sometimes discouraging process. However, a well-prepared application can make the process a little easier.
If you are in need of Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, contact an attorney at our law office by calling 503-608-7851 or toll free at 866-930-2812.
Applications can be submitted via the Internet, over the telephone or in person at a local SSA office. You need to provide all the information asked of you whether you are applying in-person, via the telephone, or filling the application out online. Understand that your request for an application and the application processing will take time. You are one of many filing for benefits. While financial situations make anyone anxious, patience is needed.
Your application will be sent to a state agency for an evaluation and determination. An examiner will be assigned to make a decision, which is typically a denial. A reconsideration is the next step, but that is often denied as well.
