The Disability Application is one way you can demonstrate your legal right to Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. It is a means by which you make an appeal to the Social Security Administration (SSA) or SSI to receive benefits. You must have medically determinable impairments that are expected to last at least 12 months or result in death.
This application is for people 18 years of age or older claiming benefits for themselves or their dependents under Title II of the Social Security Act. You may not claim disability benefits based on your own disability unless you apply personally and meet all of the requirements described in this publication. If you have a child who meets certain criteria, you may be eligible to receive benefits on his or her behalf.
How to Apply for Disability
To apply for disability, we will need proof of your disability. The Disability Evaluation Team will review the accuracy and timeliness of your information and determine whether or not you are eligible for Social Security disability benefits.
You may apply for disability benefits while at work. If you are not working and your condition prevents you from finding work, you can contact us to complete an application. If you return to work while still eligible, your claim may be closed or suspended until we receive a medical report showing that you are still disabled.
You can apply online for a Social Security disability or SSI benefit by printing and mailing in your application, or by calling our toll free number. You may also apply online, but you will need to take a printed version of the application with you when you go to the hospital to see a doctor OR at your first hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge. If you choose to apply online, please make sure that it is not someone else applying for you.
Disability Benefits protect your financial future if you are unable to work due to illness or injury. Our plan can help you pay for the things you need if: a medical condition prevents you from working, and you’re not yet eligible for Medicare. This is a voluntary benefit which provides monthly payments that may be tax-free in some cases.
Disability benefits are available for disabled people who have a 10%+ disability. You’ll receive monthly disability benefits based on the Social Security Administration’s determination that your disability will last at least 12 months or end in death.
Accommodation is one of the most critical considerations when accessing your benefits. Accommodation can be provided through physical accessibility, such as providing a ramp or modifying restrooms, or through changes to the overall environment, like lowering a countertop or changing a desk height. The goal is for you to use your equipment and tools without having any barriers in your path.
