If you or a loved one is suffering from a disability, the Social Security Disability Insurance (DI) program can provide assistance. You can apply for benefits online at the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) website or you can call the SSA directly to file a disability claim. You can also visit your local Social Security office to file a claim. It’s important to note; the disability claim interview takes about an hour, so make sure you give yourself enough time.

You should file a claim as soon as you become disabled. The sooner you file a claim, the sooner you will be able to collect benefits. When you apply for benefits, you will be asked to fill out an application form. To expedite the application process, it’s highly recommended you provide:

  • Your Social Security number
  • The names, addresses, and numbers of the doctors, hospitals, clinics or caseworkers that treated you.
  • The dates and times of your doctor visits
  • Name and dosage of the medication you are currently taking
  • Medical records from any healthcare providers/institutions that treated you (please include all lab and test results)
  • Your birth certificate
  • Your most recent W-2 (if you are self-employed, provide a copy of your tax returns for the previous year)
  • A brief description of where you worked and what job you performed
