How to Apply for Disability Benefits.

There are 3 ways to apply for benefits through the Social Security Administration. You can apply by phone, in person or online. One of the most convenient ways to apply is online if you have access to a computer with internet service.  You can apply online if:

  • are age 18 or older;
  • have worked and paid Social Security taxes long enough to qualify; and
  • have a medical condition that has prevented you from working or is expected to prevent you from working for at least 12 months or end in death.

    How do I contact social security?

      You need to call your local Social Security office, make an atnpiopment, and go in person to talk to them. They will guide you through the process of filing. Social Security will pull your medical records, and you may have to be evaluated by a SS doctor. SS bases their decision on whether they believe you can engage in gainful employment or not. I’m bipolar and on disability, but I have a lot of other physical health problems too. It can be very hard to get disability benefits, which is why so many people end up getting an attorney to help them. Was this answer helpful?
