Applying for Disability Benefits

Applying for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration can be a challenging process for recently disabled workers, especially if the disability makes otherwise normal daily activities difficult. Eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits is based on a number of factors and applicants must be careful to follow specific procedures. Learning about the process will help make applying for benefits a little less painful. This section focuses on the process of applying for SSDI or SSI benefits, with articles about eligibility; application procedures; whether or not you need a representative; and related matters.
