For an individual seeking Social Security Disability Benefits, an online application is the easiest and most efficient method. Social Security attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq., recommends that individuals simply go the website, ssa.gov, which is the official government website. The SSA website will provide a check list of required information and directions for a relatively simple application process. For those not computer literate, the old fashioned way is a visit to the local Social Security office. The third method for application is to call the Social Security Administration directly at 800-772-1212 and schedule an appointment to apply via telephone.
Whichever method is used, Social Security Disability attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq., serving Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, recommends that all applicants follow up with their physicians and make certain that they comply with record requests made by SSA.
