How do I start the process for a disability or ssi claim ?


If you have a disability, or several disabling conditions, and are unable to work, you should start the process for a social security disability or ssi claim immediately. And the reason you should do this immediately is that the disability evaluation process can take an incredibly long amount of time to get through.

How do you start the process? You can file online or visit the social security office nearest to where you live, but probably the most convenient option will be to pick up the phone, call the social security office, and inform them that you need to file a disability application. At that point, the process will begin, first and foremost with the scheduling of an application interview time for you.

The interview for either social security disability or ssi disability (which type of benefit you will be eligible to receive will be determined by the social security office) will be conducted either at the social security office, or on the phone. Phone interviews can be quite convenient, obviously, and doing an application interview on the phone may be less stressful for many individuals, particularly if they have no idea where the local SSA office is even located.

Getting the process started for disability is really pretty simple. But here are some things you should know before you initiate an ssd (social security disability) or ssi (supplemental security insurance) claim for benefits.
