How Can I Apply for Disability Benefits?

For help filing for Social Security disability benefits, contact a Charlotte disability attorney at Bridgman Law Offices by calling (888) 632-9912.

Many people think they might qualify for Social Security disability benefits, but they are unaware of how to apply for them to find out. A Charlotte disability attorney can help you fill out the application in detail.

In general, there are three ways to apply for disability benefits: over the phone, in person at the local Social Security office, or on the Internet. To complete an application over the phone, call the Social Security Administration (SSA) at 1-800-772-1213. The representative will schedule a date and time for the SSA to call you back and take your complete application over the phone (although they will still need to send you the filled-out application in the mail for you to send back with your signature)..

To complete an application in person, call the number above, and the representative will help you schedule an appointment for you at your local SSA office and give you directions on how to get there and what you need to bring to complete your application.

To apply for disability benefits online, go to: www.socialsecurity.gov/applyfordisability/adult.htm. This link is only for Social Security disability benefits. To apply for the other disability program, Supplemental Security Income, you will need to apply in person or over the phone, not online (although you can complete one of the requisite forms for it online).

No matter how you apply, fill out your information in a straightforward and honest way, and make sure to describe your impairment accurately.
