How To Apply For Social Security Disability Benefits

Completing a Social Security application is a simple process that you can do yourself. I am attorney Gary Jones, and at The Law Center for Social Security Disability in Oklahoma City, I can explain the steps you have to take and give you pointers on getting started. I will educate you about common mistakes and provide tips for ensuring that nothing is overlooked when you file your claim. I can help you file an online claim for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in my office.

Among the tips I will provide when discussing how to apply for benefits:

  • Make certain that all of your medical documentation is included.
  • Make certain that medical documentation clearly specifies your impairment.
  • Make certain your doctor has stated why the impairment prevents you from working.

These are some of the items that can lead to rejected claims if overlooked.

Applications Are Often Denied

Applications for Social Security Disability benefits are often denied. Even those completed by a lawyer may be denied. This is simply due to the nature of the process. It does not mean that you are not eligible and it does not mean that you will not eventually get benefits.

Whether or not you completed your application with the assistance of an attorney, you can benefit from legal representation after your claim is denied. I have more than 23 years of experience helping people like you overcome claim denials and get benefits.
