Gather this information to apply for social security disability

If you live in Anaheim and you have a physical or mental condition that limits your ability to work, you might be able to file for social security disability. In general, there are two conditions that might make you eligible for social security disability. The first one is that your condition has lasted for at least 12 months. The other possible requirement is that your condition is life-threatening and will more than likely end in death.

Since filing for social security disability benefits can often be very complicated, it is important to understand the basics of the process. The following information is a brief overview of social security disability and what you need to know about the application process.

Gather this information

In order to file for social security disability benefits, you will have to provide specific information. For instance, you must submit the dates of all marriages or divorces, as well as the names and birth dates of children who are still minors, as well as the name and birthday of your spouse.

In addition, you must provide copies of your prior year W-2s or personal tax return, military service discharge records, and the accounts and routing numbers for your bank accounts.

For your disability report, you will have to fill in information about your medical condition, such as the names of all prescription drugs you are taking and the name of someone who can talk to the Social Security Administration on your behalf about your condition. The report will also request information on prior jobs you have held and insurance claims you have filed, like workers' compensation, in regard to your disability.

Applying online

It could take you two hours or more to fill out a social security disability application online. First, you will have to complete the Disability Benefit Application. Next, you must fill out the Adult Disability Report. This step could take up to an hour and a half. Fortunately, you do not have to complete this process in one sitting. The online filing program will allow you to save your progress and return later to finish if you need more time.

The last item you will have to complete is the Authorization to Disclose Information Form. You will have to print, fill out and sign this document before you mail it to your nearest social security office. If you prefer, you can complete the application process over the phone or in person.

If you plan to apply for social security disability benefits, be sure you gather all the information you need before you begin the process. By taking a bit of time to prepare, you will be able to complete your application more easily. If the Social Security Administration denies your application, keep in mind that you still have options and you might be able to file an appeal.
