Qualifying for Disability

If you are unable to work due to a physical or mental impairment, the first step is to complete a Social Security Disability application. Disability Advisors can guide you through this process. If you feel confident about the process, you can apply on your own online at www.ssa.gov or by calling Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213.

Information will be collected about you and your disability including your medical history, work history, and education level. You may also be asked to submit to a consultative exam with a doctor contracted with the Social Security Administration.

The application asks for complete and accurate information. It is very important you fill this form out as detailed as possible. The more proof you have of your disability, the better your chances will be towards a favorable outcome.

Disability Advisors can work with you to complete the application and ensure you have the best chance of receiving an approval of your initial claim. Based on industry data, over 65% of claimants are denied benefits at the initial level.
