Social Security Disability Benefit Application Help

by | Disability

 There are several advantages to applying for Social Security Benefits online. There is no need for an appointment and it will definitely save you time. Visitng your local Social Security Office can be very time consuming and frustrating. Read the information below, but consider contacting disability professionals, as one mistake can severely delay your benefits.

Your personal information will be kept completely private. We use the most secure internet technology.

 

There are three parts to the application process:

• Fill out the Social Securtiy Disability Benefit Application.
• Answer the questions on the Adult Disability Report.
• Mail or take the documents we ask for to your Social Security office.

You will only be asked for relevant information. Helpful links and examples are provided. The process will go even smoother if you gather your personal information beforehand.

 

Social Security Disability Benefit Application: (Documentation)

Social Security Disability Benefit• Your Social Security number
• An original or certified copy of your birth certificate (If you were born in another country, provide proof of U.S. citizenship or legal residency.)
• If you served in the military, an original or certified copy of your discharge papers (Form DD 214) for all periods of active duty
• Your W-2 Form from last year or, if you were self-employed, your federal income tax return (IRS 1040 and Schedules C and SE)
• Direct deposit numbers for having your monthly benefits deposited automatically (You may get these from a personal check or from your financial institution.)
• Information on any workers’ compensation claims you have filed including claim numbers, dates of injury and records of payments you received

 

 Adult Disability Report: (Documentation)

• The name, address and phone number of someone who knows about your condition and can help with your claim
• Information about your illness, injury or medical condition including dates of treatment and patient ID numbers
• The names, addresses and phone numbers of the medical providers who treated you
• The names and dates of medical tests you’ve had and the names of the doctors who ordered them
• The names and prescribing doctors of any medications you take
• Medical records that you already have
• A list of where and when you’ve worked over the last 15 years (up to five jobs)

To get started, go to www.socialsecurity.gov and select “Apply online for disability benefits.”

 

Don’t worry if you can’t finish the application in one session. You can save the information you’ve entered and stop at any time. The Disability Benefit Application and the Adult Disability Report will be assigned separate numbers. Just enter the appropriate number to pick up where you left off.

The Social Security Disability Benefit Application must be completely filled out in order to submit.

If you’re unable to answer all the questions on the Adult Disability Report, you can still submit it. We’ll help you get the missing information.

Finally, you’ll be asked to sign a form (SSA-827) that gives your doctors permission to release medical information to us. There are two ways to sign:

• Sign electronically when you’re completing the Adult Disability Report.
• Print the form at that time, sign it and send it to your Social Security office.

They provide a cover sheet that you can print. Send it with the signed medical release and any medical records that you already have. When you’re finished, save the information and print a copy for your records. The process is complete when you click on “Submit Now.” If they need more information, they will contact you. When they make a decision about your claim, they will send you a letter.
