Applying for Social Security

Applying for Social Security benefits can be a confusing and frustrating process for those who try to go it alone. The application and supporting materials are detailed and time-consuming. What’s worse, if you misunderstand a question or provide incomplete responses, your benefits request may be denied.

You’ll be required to provide detailed information to support your benefits claim, including medical documentation and information about your work history, education and training. The Social Security Administration, the agency responsible for administering Social Security Disability benefits programs, will use the information provided to make a determination about your claim.

Even if your initial claim is denied, you may still prevail on appeal. If you are successful on appeal, your benefit payments will be retroactive, so you may be due a significant amount of compensation – money you can use to pay your bills or for any other purpose.
