The Application Process

Filing an application for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration can be very confusing and often frustrating. The first step in the Social Security application process is determining whether you are eligible for SSDI or SSI benefits based on the qualification criteria and strict definition of disability as provided by the Social Security Administration.

You can submit your initial stage application for Social Security benefits online, over the phone, or in person at your local Social Security office. If you are unable to travel to your local Social Security office, you may request a telephone interview to apply for benefits.
