There are several ways to apply for Social Security Disability Benefits.

  1. You can call your local SSA Field Office and do it over the phone;
  2. You can apply in writing on a standard government form;
  3. You can apply yourself online; or
  4. I can apply with you on my computer (the easiest and best way).

If we Apply together, I know the form inside and out, and we can get it done in about an hour.

If you are applying for Supplemental Security Income Benefits, you will also need to go through a phone interview with your local SSA Field Office, so they can verify you are within the program's asset limitations.
